Cllr and Mrs Neal have had the privilege of being Mayor and Mayoress of Whitworth before in 1990/91 and 2003/04 and they are very honoured to have been given this opportunity again. They will do thei best to support events in the community from our local organisations and groups and hopefully travelling further afield to promote Whitworth and our community.
Janet and Alan have been married for 42 years and have two daughters, Helen and Kimberley, who are both married and live in the area. They have 2 granddaughters and a grandson who keep them on their toes!
Alan is very proud to celebrate that this year marks his 30th year as a Whitworth Town Councillor.
During their year of office, the Mayor and Mayoress will be holding several fundraising events for their Mayors Charity Fund, the money raised from these will go to local organisations. Janet and Alan are excited for the next twelve months and look forward to seeing as many of you as possible.
