The Managing Partner of Russell & Russell Solicitors has been appointed Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Greater Manchester.

Judith Bromley, who heads up the firm’s wills and probate department and is also the Chair of Bolton Hospice, said she was “immensely proud” and would be “doing all I can to promote Bolton and its amazing people”.

Judith will officially represent the Lord Lieutenant and assist him in his duties as The Queen’s Representative in Greater Manchester.

Judith said: “I was so shocked to discover I had been chosen for this amazing honour. I couldn’t be more proud.

“It is a privilege to have been appointed to my new role, which will enable me to be an ambassador for Bolton and all the great things that we do in the borough.”

Deputy Lord Lieutenants are asked to provide support in areas including Honours Nominations, Assessments for The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, suggesting names for Royal Garden Parties and representing the Sovereign at Citizenship Ceremonies.

Dr Leigh Vallance, Chief Executive of Bolton Hospice, said she was delighted by the news. “This is immensely prestigious role that is very well deserved and builds on the high profile, integrity and standing of our Chairman’s links across Bolton, from grass roots community charity levels through to business, education, legal, health and public service levels.

“Judith is truly the pride of Bolton and especially of Bolton Hospice.”

Judith completed her law degree and solicitors finals at Leeds University in 1985 and 1986 respectively. She qualified as a solicitor in 1988 and joined Russell & Russell in 1990.

Outside work, Judith says she enjoys anything to do with mountains - skiing down them or trekking up them and is a keen walker. She lives in Bolton and is married to husband Phil.
