Nantwich Town Mayor Cllr Arthur Moran

“As we enter this period of unprecedented limitations on our working and personal lives I felt as the Mayor of Nantwich I should address residents.

Not usually a person who would stay at home, I have been following Government advice and believe we should all be adhering.

I encourage you all to please take the right actions and stay at home, and distance yourself when you do have to go out.

I have never been prouder to see and hear of the efforts of key workers and volunteers in the area and across our country including of course our NHS, schools, emergency services and shop workers to name but a few, and I would personally like to thank each and every one of you.

I joined in with the clap of thanks last week, which truly was a moving dedication to the NHS.

Nantwich Town Council are working hard behind the scenes to ensure business continues.

Whilst events at the Civic Hall and on the Square have had to be postponed, a home working policy has been introduced and administration will continue, with all lines diverted to mobiles.

Councillors have all been issued with IPADs to maintain communication links and some meetings will continue through the Zoom application.

In an emergency Council meeting two weeks ago, Councillors issued temporary delegation of power to the Town Clerk, Samantha Roberts to maintain essential service delivery.

The market has been closed, however some food traders will continue to serve the community on market days from outside the market hall observing safe distancing, whilst others are operating home delivery services, visit Nantwich Market Facebook page for full details.

Cheshire East have put together ‘Helping People’ which is a wonderful service for those who want to help during these times, but importantly their aim is to reach the most vulnerable amongst us.

Whether that is with shopping, collecting essential medial supplies or just a chat, they are there to help, so I encourage you to be neighbourly and let those who need the service know about it.

Simply call Cheshire East on 0300 123 5034.

For now stay safe.”

Nantwich Mayor, Cllr Arthur Moran


  1. Agree with Kathryn, a few signs of people not taking things seriously. Shoppers still browsing, picking things up and putting back on shelves etc. Needs more common sense, stick to a list of what you NEED.
    Also for this weekends slightly better weather, be sensible, a day of 16-17 degrees at any time in the spring or summer would not drag people out of their houses. So use your brains, stay at hom,e and try and bring us out of this as soon as possible. Short term selfishness will extend these restrictions for all not just the stupid few.

    • Just an additional point, a house party in the town was reported to the police on Sunday night but nobody attended to investigate. Celebrity stories of this are well publicised but this does not send the right message to responsible members of the public doing the right thing in raising these issues.

    Unfortunately people in nantwich are getting complacent and starting to ignore social distancing. Out shopping as a family. Very disappointing and very selfish.
