is made possible and brought to you by the Congleton Partnership and it's volunteers.
What is the Congleton Partnership?
The Partnership ‘ TEAM’ was created in August 2008 and evolved from the Market Town Initiative which had been formed in 2005 to be able to apply for government money released by the Countryside Agency to support rural areas in the aftermath of foot and mouth disease.
To be a successful applicant there had to be community consultation and consequently community focus groups of 80 residents were formed to examine aspects of the town which could be improved – transport, health , economy, tourism etc. This was called a Health Check and gradually a Vision for Congleton evolved.
‘ We believe TEAM stands for Together Everyone Achieves More. Our Team Vision is to make Congleton a vibrant, happy, healthy, prosperous, sustainable town where people want to visit, stay, live, work , rest and play.'

When visiting Congleton Beartown, our Tourist Information Centre should be you first port of call.
This is the story of a market town in Cheshire that became famous for its attachment to its resident bear. So much so, that when the bear became old and died just before the town festivities, the money put aside for the new town bible was borrowed to replace him.
This bear has long gone, but the legend lives on in the hearts of Congleton’s people. We still celebrate that imagination and determination to have fun. And why should it stop there? Our town’s a town for choice, a town for friendships, and a town for visiting and revisiting.
