The town is about half way between Manchester and Stoke and is part of the beautiful Cheshire Peak District. Congleton is well known for its festivals, flowers, ribbons, beers and bears! It has over 150 local organisations and groups, a bustling shopping centre, its own theatre, fantastic park and paddling pool. The town won North West in Bloom in 2015 and represented the North West in Britain in Bloom in 2016, gaining GOLD standard. The town will be competing in the 2017 North West in Bloom Competition.
