THE MAYOR and Mayoress of Whitworth have organised a 60s themed fundraiser which will take place later this year.

Cllr Alan and Mrs Janet Neal have invited people to the event at The Riverside in Market Street, with lots of psychedelic fun planned and 60s costume is encouraged.

All proceeds raised at the event will go towards the Mayor’s Charity Fund, which will support groups and charities in Whitworth.

People have been asked to book tickets early for the event.

Tickets cost £15 each including buffet and are available from the Riverside and Eventbrite while stocks last.

Alternatively, people can give Melanie, the Town Clerk a call on 01706 852018 or email

Doors for the event will open at 7pm at Saturday, October 21.
