Nantwich is best town in the North West – official!


Cheshire East Council its congratulating Nantwich in Bloom on its victory in the North West in Bloom awards.

Nantwich won gold in the best town category and scooped the Preston Silver Dish, making it officially the prettiest and most well-kept town in the North West.

Nantwich will go through to the Britain in Bloom finals in 2012, where it will be in the running for best town in the country. Judges are expected to arrive in the town unannounced in April.

The Council is also praising the various towns and villages for their efforts in the competition, which are helping to put Cheshire East on the map.

Congleton also impressively won gold in the best large town section, whilst Alsager managed a bronze in the same category.

Meanwhile, Knutsford and Middlewich managed a silver gilt and Wistaston won a silver medal in the best town category. Haslington and Willaston both got silver medals in the best small town category and Audlem won a silver gilt and Winterley a silver medal in the best large village section.

Councillor Rod Menlove, Cabinet member with responsibility for environmental services, said: “I would like to take this opportunity to say ‘well done’ to the people of Cheshire East, who have worked extremely hard to keep their towns and villages looking so attractive.

“I would also like to thank the work of our Streetscape team which has played its part in these successes.

“When our towns and villages win awards like this, it just goes to prove furthermore that Cheshire East has much to be proud of and I wish Nantwich in Bloom every success in the Britain in Bloom finals.”

Streetscape plays a major role in keeping Cheshire East clean and tidy and works closely with the various In Bloom and Friends Of groups and town and parish councils.

Together these organisations focus on horticultural excellence, community involvement, environmental friendliness and sustainability to keep their areas attractive.

Doug Butterill, chairman of Nantwich in Bloom, said: “We are extremely pleased to have been crowned the best in the North West. It shows that we are back at the top where we belong, as we did not make it this far last year.

“We pulled out all the stops this time and it was a real combined effort from schools, guides, traders, cadets, Rotary and Cheshire East, to name a few.”
