A Moorlands town centre is back open for business – and with new welcoming décor.
Bunting and flags have been put up along the High Street in Cheadle in an initiative to bring more visitors to the Moorlands town.
The patriotic décor was put up ahead of St George’s day on Friday, and also the free parking day in Cheadle on Saturday (April 24), which was part of Team Cheadle’s Buy British Week.
The sprucing up initiative was a team effort involving volunteers, councillors, and local businesses.
A spokesman for Team Cheadle said: “We hope everyone is enjoying the bunting and flags decorating the High Street.
“These will stay in place until the end of Summer so please visit the High Street and take a look.
“Team Cheadle has worked in collaboration with Cheadle Town Council, Mayor Ian Plant, Deputy Mayor Gary Bentley, Oakleys Farm and Neil Rowlinson.
“Thank you to everyone involved in this project.”
Cheadle Town Mayor Ian Plant said: “I was more than happy to be able to offer a donation from my Mayor’s Allowance to fund the bunting in the High Street, and thanks must go to Team Cheadle and the volunteers for erecting the colourful decorations to highlight St George’s (Day) and the opening up of the high street shops recently.
“The town looks great with the bunting and so many flags.
“When the request came to council I was more than happy to make the £160 contribution from my allowance, another contribution came also from Team Cheadle.”
Deputy Mayor councillor Gary Bentley donated some of the flags and also helped to put the décor up. He said: “It does look lovely, definitely worth all the volunteer time, and we have had some lovely feedback.
“I would like to thank all those involved including: Rowlinson Signs, Donald Cope Estate Agents, Upton Engineering and Klarius, Elite Bathrooms, and all the volunteers who helped.
“We are hoping to continue with more flags down the High Street, just like we have done with the bunting.”
