Tourism and Leisure Committee Meeting

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.

    Christmas Tree Bracket

    Whitworth Tourism and Leisure Committee are aiming to extend the Christmas lights offer across the length of the town by installing Christmas Trees, at a subsidised cost to properties around Whitworth. To spread the festive cheer throughout the village, the Committee is hoping that you might consider displaying a Christmas tree on your property this year, which will provide Whitworth with a little more festive sparkle. If you do not already have a bracket on your property, then we can install a bracket for £25 per bracket which will then remain on your property and be yours to keep. We have a limited amount of 10 brackets available.
