Big picture of a town

Business support

The team at the Weaver Valley Partnership would like to take this opportunity to extend our best wishes to you all for 2014.

The economic  development of the area is our priority and we look forward to further developing the connectivity  with key players to ensure this progresses.

We must be mindful that the three main towns that make up the area, Middlewich, Winsford and Northwich, are all very important contributors to the local economy.

Both the private and public sectors must engage with our strong educational resource to improve the opportunities that we hopefully are going to see being created as the Local, National and Global economies continue to recover.

There will be a lot of new opportunities and challenges to face during the coming year and we must see the positive potential that lies within them.

We look forward to working together and making 2014 a year to remember for success.

We are always keen to hear from businesses in the area, if you would like to know more about the work of the Waver Valley you can follow us on this website or email us at chairofweavervalley@cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk
