Latest update from Cheshire West and Chester Council Newsroom:

Cheshire West and Chester Council has received national recognition for its work to unlock a food revolution and tackle the climate emergency.

The Council has been listed as one of 21 top performing councils out of nearly 200 analysed by Sustain, a national alliance for better food and farming.

Sustain’s report ‘Every Mouthful Counts’, looks at how well councils in the UK are performing on issues of food and tackling climate change.

The borough has also joined the Sustainable Food Places Network following a successful application by Cheshire West Voluntary Action (CWVA) supported by the Council’s Public Health team.

Cllr Louise Gittins, Leader of Cheshire West and Chester Council, said:
