Growing SMEs and Global multinational businesses

The Mid-Cheshire East Pledge incorporates the towns of Middlewich, Congleton, Holmes Chapel, Sandbach, and Alsager, sitting in-between the Crewe and Macclesfield Pledge areas. Whilst each of these towns have their own business communities, Congleton is the main centre of activity due to the number of employers, business parks and is the base for the East Cheshire Chamber of Commerce.

Within the Mid-Cheshire East Pledge area, all seven of the mainstream high schools and their sixth forms and one special school are engaged. We also work with nearly 50 employers are engaged within the patch.
