A NEW town centre map of Knutsford has been launched to encourage more shoppers and visitors.

The handy guide opens up into a hand drawn A3 size map and includes details of the town's markets, businesses, cafes, restaurants and hotels.

Key events in the calendar are listed with details of the Knutsford voucher, a unique scheme offering shoppers a gift idea and encouraging residents to support local shops and retailers.

The map is available at key locations in the town centre including the railway station and Knutsford Heritage Centre and is being distributed to tourist information offices across Cheshire.
