Additional colour has been brought to Northwich for the summer months thanks to partnership working between town centre organisations.

The Northwich Business Improvement District (BID) has funded a planting scheme which has been delivered by Northwich Town Council (NTC), with both parties equally covering the watering costs.

Vibrant floral displays, which have been added to brighten up parts of the town centre for businesses, shoppers and visitors, can now be found outside the Northwich Memorial Court, in the subway turret and also on Dane Street bridge.

A new flower tower has been placed in Brunner Court too thanks to investment from the BID, as they work towards one of their main objectives of creating a greener and cleaner town centre.

Cheshire West and Chester Council have been involved with the initiative as well and have installed railing baskets on Chester Way, filled planters throughout the centre of town and placed hanging baskets at a number of key locations including outside Northwich Library.

The flower power doesn’t stop there however, as NTC are working with local schools to add sunflower planters across Northwich.

This particular project ties in with the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Scheme and will help to raise awareness of the fact that Northwich is now a ‘Sunflower Friendly’ town. To find out more about this, please head to our Accessible Northwich page.

Commenting on all of the planting that has taken place and continued partnership working, Northwich BID Project Manager Adam Gerrard said: “We’re delighted to be teaming up with Northwich Town Council once again to deliver this project and bring extra splashes of colour to the town centre for all visitors to enjoy.

“Successful partnership working will be critical as the town recovers from the pandemic.”

Northwich Town Councillor Sam Naylor added: “We know that people love seeing the summer plants in Northwich and we always get positive comments every year from businesses and visitors alike which is why we’re pleased to once again work on this initiative.

“We’re looking forward to working closely with the BID on more projects going forward to help the town flourish.”
