KNUTSFORDIANS can look forward to a year packed with good food, good music and exceedingly good cakes.

The newly appointed and highly organised Knutsford Town Mayor Clr Neil Forbes has released a calendar of fundraising events to take place throughout his mayoral year to raise money for Knutsford GROW and St John’s Wood Lunch Club.

The events planned include The Great Knutsford Cake Off, in conjunction with Monckton Properties and the Makers Market, Knutsford’s Got the Talent Factor, and a series Munch with the Mayor dinners.

Clr Forbes said: “It was my aim this year, as set out in my acceptance speech to devise events that the entire Knutsford community could get involved with and enjoy, from the youngest to the oldest, all with the aim of raising as much as possible for my chosen charities.

“As can be seen from the calendar, the events are extremely varied and as a result I hope that all Knutsfordians will aim to come along to at least one event during the year.”

The full calendar of events is available to download, click here. There is also the option to sign up to the mailing list at the same address to ensure you get all the information about the events as it becomes available and priority access to tickets.

If you have any queries about any of the events or would like to invite the Mayor to an event you are organising, contact the Mayor’s PA, Lisa Benskin on 01565 653929 or email
