Councillor Mrs Madeline De Souza became the Mayor of Whitworth for the second time on 24th May this year. and since then, her feet have hardly touched the ground!

One of the functions of the Mayor is to raise funds for charity.  The Mayoral Charity Fund will then be shared between local community groups at the Annual Parish meeting in May 2019.  This year, Madeline would like to make a donation to Barley View (the new dementia care home currently being built in our Whitworth) for a specific piece of equipment to assist in their specialist dementia care.

After being instrumental in bringing Pinders Circus to Whitworth in June, Madeline just couldn’t resist having a circus themed fundraiser!  On Saturday 20th October she will host two screenings of the sing-a-long version of the Greatest Showman at the Riverside. There will be a family and dementia friendly screening in the afternoon and then a further screening in the evening for adults.

The Mayor is also be working in conjunction with CLAW (Community Leisure Association Whitworth – the charity who manage the Civic Hall and the leisure centre) to put on another joint community cinema showing Incredibles 2 and Mamma Mia 2.

Tickets for all events are available now for £6 each from the Council Office or alternatively they can be booked online on Eventbrite there is a surcharge to cover the cost of booking this way.  Seating is allocated for all performances so please book soon to ensure the best available seating.
