Council services to be showcased at top agricultural shows
June 13, 2017
Cheshire East Council will be shining the spotlight on its services at two of the borough’s largest agricultural events.
The council is proud to be a major sponsor of The Royal Cheshire County Show, in Tabley, near Knutsford, and the Nantwich Show, based at Dorfold Park, and will be welcoming visitors to its stand at both events.
The theme of this year’s council stand will be the authority’s 500 services, with interesting facts and figures and an ‘A-Z of the council’ forming part of the display.
There will also be a prize draw, deckchairs for visitors to sit back and relax on and an array of council vehicles, including a gritter, compact road sweeper, mobile children’s centre, mobile library, a countryside ranger service vehicle and a vehicle from Transport Service Solutions, a Cheshire East Council arms-length company.
Staff from the council’s fostering team and arms-length Skills and Growth Company and Transport Service Solutions will also be in attendance.
Councillor Janet Clowes, Cheshire East Council cabinet member for rural affairs, said: “Every day our staff work hard to provide more than 500 services, helping to make Cheshire East a great place to live, work and visit.
“We want to celebrate this and show visitors to both events the range of those services, while also promoting everything else that is great about our borough.”
The Royal Cheshire County Show takes place on June 20 and 21 and the Nantwich Show is open to the public on July 26.
Visitors planning a journey to The Royal Cheshire County Show will benefit from a free bus service to and from the showground, which has been funded and organised by the council. The service will run to and from Knutsford and Hartford railway stations.
