On Saturday 8 April 2017, the Mayor of Whitworth, Councillor Madeline De Souza, will be hosting the first ever annual celebration and awards evening.
This year, this event will take the place of the Civic Dinner and aim to celebrate all we have to offer in Whitworth culminating in the presentation of some very special awards.
It will take place at The Riverside (Civic Hall), Whitworth, with doors opening at 6.30pm, a hot buffet, awards presentations and then dancing until midnight. The event will feature popular local singer and guitarist, Graham Shellard.
Councillor De Souza says;
“I’m delighted to host such a wonderful event for the first time. This year I have had the privilege to be Mayor of Whitworth which has opened my eyes to the wonderful volunteers and community spirit we have here in Whitworth. I think this is something that we should celebrate so have arranged the ‘Mayoral annual celebration and awards’. It promises to be a fantastic evening, and I’m very much looking forward to raising funds for my mayoral charities.”
The Mayor would welcome nominations for anybody you think deserves any of the following awards; ‘The Jack Wilkinson Young Achiever’s Award’, ‘Jeff Ogden Services to the Community Award’, ‘Voluntary Award’, ‘Best Business Contribution’ and ‘Bringing Communities Together’ awards.
Nominations must be received by Friday 17th March to be judged. All the winners of these awards will then be entered into the overall ‘Pride of Whitworth Award’ which will be presented during the evening and finalists will receive complementary tickets to the awards evening.
You can nominate by collecting a form locally or by completing the electronic nomination form at www.whitworth.gov.uk/nomination-form.
Tickets are on sale now costing £15 per head which includes a hot buffet meal – tickets are expected to sell quickly for this event and should be booked in advance. To book tickets, contact Melanie Hearn, The Town Clerk on 01706 852018 or email email@example.com
