Judges visit Northwich as part of North West in Bloom Awards
Judges from the North West in Bloom Awards have visited Northwich to take a look at the projects and initiatives that have come to fruition within the last few months.

On Tuesday 30th July, volunteers and representatives from the Northwich Business Improvement District (BID), Northwich Town Council, Love my River Northwich and Grozone Community Garden showed the judges around the town centre and also took them to a number of locations in the wider Northwich area.
The partnership working between the Northwich BID and Northwich Town Council was also highlighted with a particular focus on the planters and hanging baskets that bring colour and vibrancy to Northwich throughout the year.

Northwich will be aiming to go one better after achieving the Silver Gilt in 2018 which was the town’s first entry into the competition.

Learn about the different projects and locations they visited by reading the full press release.

Fresh new look for Matalan Northwich
Northwich’s Matalan has a fresh new look after undergoing a major refurbishment throughout the store.

Elsewhere there are enhanced departments across homeware and lingerie, a Card Factory concession and a section dedicated to Totally Toys which features characters from popular suppliers such as Paw Patrol and Hatchimals.

Matalan’s Retail Director Mike Jeans has explained why the redevelopment has taken place at the Northwich store. Head to the Visit Northwich website to read the full press release.
