Town Councillors are very active in the community. They represent the views of Nantwich residents and support a wide variety of local organisations. The Town Council was awarded Quality Status on 6th November 2007 and this award lasted for four years.

On 6th November 2011 the Council gained re-accreditation, which means it is recognised as effective and in touch with the people it serves. To find out more about what Quality Status means, click on the Quality Status logo on the foot of this page.
