Nantwich Town Council

Nantwich is an attractive market town in South Cheshire with facilities that serve the needs of the surrounding rural area as well as the town itself. About 14,000 people live within the town council boundaries. In recent years the built up area has extended into adjacent parishes increasing the town’s population to about 17,000. The Town Council is made up of twelve Councillors, who were all elected in 2015. The Council meets monthly at the Civic Hall, Market Street, CW5 5DG. The public are welcome to attend and the Town Council website includes a calendar of meetings. In 2012 the Town Council took control of several assets previously run by Cheshire East Borough Council and it now has responsibility for Nantwich Civic Hall, the Market Hall, toilets and 4 allotment sites.




Mornflake is celebrating its 10th anniversary as a top Nantwich Food Festival sponsor and exhibitor. Every year we help turn Nantwich into a foodie heaven while championing that most versatile and healthy of products – oats! For a real taste sensation visit the Mornflake marquee, located on the Bowling Green car-park, showcasing fine food and drink from around the country.

And of course no festival would be complete without our very own Cheshire-milled oats!  Drawing on over 330 years of milling experience, it’s pretty safe to say there’s not a lot we don’t know about oats. As a major exporter, we’re proud to fly the flag for Cheshire by sending little bowls breakfast joy round the world. Come and say hello on our stand and hear more about our famous porridge, granola and muesli products.

Want to know more about incorporating our delicious oats into your diet?  For products and recipes visit http://www.mornflake.com



The Cheerbrook marquee will be located on the town square.

Cheerbrook was born in October 2000, opening on a very small scale with a simple plan of providing delicious, top quality, local food that was great value for money and supported by excellent customer service. Now in our second decade, we’ve evolved into one of the premier farm shops in the country – but while we’ve grown, our ideals remain the same.

As well as a great selection of produce from local suppliers, we also have our own fantastic team of butchers, bakers and chefs who create fresh, innovative and delicious food for our shop and café – and we’re proud to be able to say that if it says Cheerbrook on the label, we’ve made it at Cheerbrook.

We’ve won various awards over the years for our shop and products, but the opinion that matters most to us is yours – so do come and see for yourselves. We look forward to welcoming you soon.

Back in 1986, our parents Chris and Cheryl started making ice cream in their Cheshire farmhouse kitchen. With delicious fresh cream, only the very best ingredients and an old Kenwood Chef Snugburys was born. They soon outgrew selling ice creams from their kitchen window and converted an old barn in the cobbled courtyard.

Fast forward 30 (odd) years and today we (three sisters Hannah, Kitty and Cleo) are at the helm with a fantastic team of ice cream makers and scoopers!

The original barn is still today the home of our famous Snugburys ice cream shop, which now attracts over 300,000 ‘ice creamers’ a year for a scoop (or two) of our award winning ice cream.

We have continued our parent’s passion of using only the best ingredients in our famous ice cream.

In 2018 we opened a brand new purpose build dairy to meet our growing demand. This fabulous new building is a hub of activity with a dedicated onsite kitchen to make lots of our incredible ingredients from our gooey chocolate brownie to our zingy damson coulis. (Lucky we have lots of taste testers on site!)

We believe it’s the little things that make a big difference, from a ‘hello’ as you walk across the yard to that extra bit of caramel ripple or chunk of golden honeycomb.

We have one aim and that is to make people feel good!
