The Northwich Business Improvement District (BID) has launched the second phase of the Northwich Together initiative which aims to celebrate creativity and everything that is great about the town.

The campaign, called Northwich Creates Together, is all about local creative minds using their skills to reinforce the community spirit in Northwich and encourages participation from the public.

As part of the campaign, the Northwich BID is asking people to submit photos during and after lockdown which highlight the great aspects of the town and its wonderful community.

This could include socially distanced walks, fun in the garden, life working from home or pictures from when life had started to return back to normality somewhat over the summer.

On top of this, they’re also looking for people to submit a song or poem which highlights positive aspects of the town. They could focus on anything from favourite businesses or locations to memories of Northwich.

The most emotive song will feature in a video to be released later in the year alongside a collection of entries from the photo competition. These will also be shared on the Northwich BID’s social media accounts including the Visit Northwich Facebook page.

Jane Hough, Business Improvement District Programme Manager, expressed her excitement for the campaign.

“Although we have been going through some tough times over the past few months, the community spirit in Northwich has always been prevalent. Northwich Creates Together celebrates this in a creative way,” said Jane.

“The campaign will not only highlight the great aspects of Northwich, from businesses, bars and shops to greenspaces, heritage attractions and parks, but it will also demonstrate the strength our community has shown during the pandemic.”

To take part in any of the competition aspects of the campaign, visit the Northwich Creates Together page to submit your entries. The deadline for submission of the photos is Saturday 7th November and you have until Saturday 14th November to submit your song or poem.
