Civic and Community Events
The Town Council organises a number of Civic Events and Community Events each year. Due to current social distancing restrictions some events have had to be cancelled, however, Bollington Town Council will continue to monitor the situation and make decisions about events scheduled for later on in the year nearer to the time. The council is also considering which events could be held virtually and will keep the community updated.
Below is some information about the type of events that are usually held during the year, along with a selection of images of events which took place during Cllr. Roland Edward's year as Mayor.
The Civic Year starts in May with the Annual Meeting and Mayor Making. The Mayor will organise a Civic Sunday which includes a parade, a service and the presentation of Civic Awards to members of the local community. A Civic Dinner is organised towards the end of the year and the Mayor will oversee the Annual Town Assembly where all Bollington residents are invited to meet the Mayor and Councillors, learn of all the latest developments in the Town and take part in an open forum. There is also an annual Boundary Walk which originated from the old tradition of Beating the Bounds; recently the walk has been taking place in autumn as part of the Walking Festival.
The Town Council organises or is involved in a number of community events. These include annual events such as: Remembrance Sunday, Christmas Lights Switch on and Carols round the Tree on Christmas Eve as well as Jubilee Celebrations, Battle of the Bands Competitions and Youth Fairs to name but a few.
