The Cheshire town of Nantwich is setting the CPT’s Coach Friendly Award as its next target according to John Weir, chairman of the business led group Nantwich Flourish.

Crewe & Nantwich Weaver Rotary Club, the businesses of Nantwich and the Town Council have joined forces to welcome coaches because they recognise the economic benefit they can bring to the town.

Nantwich is situated nine miles from the M6 Junction 16, five miles from Crewe, 21 miles from Chester and 17 miles from Stoke on Trent, which makes it a good location for stopping off for refreshments.

The town is inviting coach groups to explore its leisure and entertainment activities and events, including its International Cheese Show on July 25, 2012, and the annual September Food Festival.

During the year coach groups can enjoy many other local activities including guided tours of Nantwich, and the Rotary Club’s annual classic car rally Weaver Wander which this year saw over 100 cars driving through the normally pedestrianised town centre.

Coaches can drop passengers off at the bus station where they will be met by one of eight ambassadors to welcome them to Nantwich with information about what’s available and a £5 voucher for the driver towards a meal in the town. Coach parking is free at Nantwich Town Football Club.
