Whitworth Town Council

Tourism and Leisure Committee

The Whitworth Tourism and Leisure Committee was formed in 2008 and comprises town councillor and non-councillor members.

The aim of the Committee is to promote Whitworth as a great place to live and visit through the organisation of various initiatives and events. The Tourism and Leisure Committee organises the Family Fun Day, calendar and Rushcart annually, and co-organises the New Year’s Day Duck Race and the Christmas Lights Switch On.  The volunteers also organise the Christmas Trees on Brackets scheme and new for 2020 is the socially distanced 'Santa Express!'
