A WOMEN’S group in Leigh has welcomed an honorary member.
Soroptimist International (SI) of Leigh and District has invited the new Mayor, Leigh councillor, Myra Whiteside, to become an honorary member whilst she completes her term of office.
Wendy Heydon, member of SI Leigh, said: “We were delighted that this year’s Civic Service following the installation of the new Mayor of Wigan was held in Leigh Parish church.
“It normally takes place in Wigan, but was held in Leigh because the new Mayor, Myra Whiteside, is a Leigh Councillor.
“To honour her new status, the club has made Mayor Whiteside an Honorary Member during her term of office.”
