Nantwich working together to celebrate the Jubilee

Nantwich businesses, the museum and local schools are getting ready to unveil a joint initiative to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum jubilee.

The Nantwich Educational Partnership (NEP), have approached nine businesses within Nantwich to seek space in their windows to showcase the artistic talents of the town’s young people.

Following the map created by local illustrator, Scarlett Lacy, visitors to the town can walk their way through the decades of her reign beginning with a celebration of her coronation in Chic Interiors and finishing with the Platinum Jubilee celebration in AT Welch in Hospital Street. NEP chair Mrs Boo Edleston explained “We have had tremendous support from the museum alongside shops within the town who have generously agreed to make space for artwork created by pupils at 18 local primary and secondary schools. This is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the jubilee, showcase our young people’s creative talents and ensure our families are actively encouraged to be part of our town. All involved are independent businesses and the NEP recognises the power of working together and buying locally. This has been a lot of work but as the displays are unveiled from May 23rd we are hoping that the three weeks of the installation will really draw people into our town and enjoy how our young people have artistically interpreted the history of the Queen’s reign.’
