Nantwich granted ArcAngel Protected Town status

Nantwich Town Council was one of the first organisations to sign up to the ArcAngel project in October last year along with the Railway Hotel.     Nantwich now has official status as an ArcAngel Protected Town following the launch event on Nantwich Square last November.

The licensees involved are required to meet a number of criteria designed to promote responsible drinking and public safety, and were assessed by local police and Cheshire East Licensing and Trading Standards.    Representatives from each premises were presented with certificates by the Mayor of Nantwich, Councillor Graham Fenton.

Sgt Tomlinson said: “We’re very pleased to have all the premises on board and have been impressed by their attitude and commitment.

“By working together, we have shown that we can reduce alcohol-related disorder and ensure that Nantwich is a safe place to enjoy a night out.”
