Knutsford is home to a wonderful community of shops and businesses.  However, it’s narrow quirky streets can make visiting the town centre difficult, especially for older people.

This is where ‘Take a Seat’ comes in.  This initiative enables older people, those with a disability or chronic illness or those who just need to ‘take a breather’ for whatever reason, the chance to sit down and recharge their batteries.

Some businesses may offer a glass of water and if accessible the use of their toilet facilities. Please remember you are under no obligation to make a purchase; these businesses just want to help everyone in the local community enjoy their visits to the Town Centre.

Are you a local business and wish to sign up to the scheme? If so, please email for further information

The window sticker that is used to indicate participating businesses, it shows a picture of a chair alongside the council logo and says "Need a breather? Take a Seat"
