The Tourism and Leisure Committee are a hard working group of volunteers who work so hard for the benefit of Whitworth. Some volunteers are local councillors and others have an interest in helping out our community. They arrange five annual events and raise funds to make Whitworth an even better place than it already is. For more details about the TLC, contact Councillor David Chorlton, Chairman of the TLC or use the website 'contact us' form.
The Mayor of Whitworth is holding a fundraising event to celebrate the end of his Mayoral Year. Expect live music and dancing and lots of fun!
Every English town or parish must hold an Annual Meeting of the Parish for electors registered in the area. It is a meeting for all Whitworth people to get an overview of what is currently happening in the town, looking the work of the various organisations serving Whitworth (including the Town Council), and offering electors the opportunity to raise queries and make observations.
This is a challenging walk of approximately 14 miles over varied terrain, starting at Lobden Golf Club between 7.45am and 9am - your choice. It is undertaken entirely at the walker's own risk, and by entering you are accepting that you will stick to the official route. The organisers – Whitworth Sports Council – will provide you with written route instructions; and orange juice/water/plasters if required at every checkpoint; and vehicles may be available to remove you from the moor in the case of emergency. There will also be a certificate and a small hot meal available to you at the finish at Lobden Golf Club. NB Orange juice: can we top up your bottle rather than dish out a cup each time?
The AGM Meeting, which incorporates Mayor-Making, takes place at 7.30pm at the Ashcroft. This is a public meeting and all are welcome to attend. Agendas are published here roughly one week in advance of the meeting, and draft minutes are published here roughly 3 working days after the meeting.
