Knutsford Town Council is calling on residents and lovers of the high street to give a shout out to their favourite shops, bars or restaurants.

This special promotion hopes to give traders a boost during the current cost of living crisis.

Sandra Curties, town centre manager, said: “In an increasingly difficult economic climate it is more important than ever to champion our town centre and its wonderful businesses.

“We are asking residents and supporters of our town to get in touch and let us know their three favourite shops.

“We will then video or interview these shopping champions and share their top shops on our social media platforms. “Restaurants, pubs, clothes shops to hardware shops, we don’t mind.

“The most difficult thing is actually choosing the top three!”

First up was local resident Paul Langley who chose Detaljer, Slipped Discs of Knutsford Market Hall and The Cheeseyard.

Musician Paul, who performs with Mark Radcliffe in the electronic due Une, said: “I am proud to be part of this initiative and support our wonderful businesses.

“I would urge everyone to get involved.”
