Welcome to Congleton

We Wish you a Merry Christmas

Staff and councillors at Congleton Town Council would like to wish everyone a happy and environmentally friendly Christmas and a peaceful new year. In line with our green credentials, we’ve created an electronic Christmas card this year. The card represents the ‘fabric of our town’ featuring vocals from Marlfields & Mossley school choirs and over 60 images provided by Congleton groups, organisations, families, businesses, schools, in fact all walks of the community that make our town so special. Thank you to local company Majestical based at Riverside for helping to create the card.

As Christmas approaches, Congleton has plenty to offer this festive season and throughout! Congleton Town Council is asking residents and visitors to share some Christmas cheer and support local shops, businesses and events this year. Did you know that Congleton has more than 90 retail shops, 85 service businesses and 50 places to eat and drink in the town centre that are looking forward to helping you find beautiful gifts and celebrate the party season in style. It would be great to see Congleton traders thrive under the twinkle of the Christmas lights. Discover more Christmas gems in Congleton here: ‘Christmas in Congleton’
