NORTHWICH is looking to go one better in this year's Great British High Street Awards, having entered in the 'Rising Star' category.

The town was highly commended in last year's awards, being named a 'Rising Star' runner up.

Judges praised the diverse mix of uses within the town centre, as well as close work with partners and the community to deliver a range of events and initiatives.

Nominations closed earlier in July in both the 'Rising Star' and 'Champion' categories, with last year's awards ceremony taking place in November.
