Macclesfield MP David Rutley visited the Macclesfield Silk Museum on Friday 28th May as part of English Tourism Week.
David was joined by Philip Cox, Chief Executive of the Cheshire and Warrington LEP, to meet staff following the easing of lockdown restrictions and the roadmap out of lockdown.
Following the visit, David said, “Macclesfield’s rich heritage and vibrant community has got a lot to offer both local residents and visitors during English Tourism Week.
“Our much-loved Silk Museum and Paradise Mill provide unique insights into the town’s history and its leadership in the silk industry. The museum’s team has been busy engaging with new audiences digitally during lockdown and it is positive to see the doors now opening so people can once again visit in person.
“I am very grateful to both Marketing Cheshire and the Cheshire & Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership for their active support in helping to promote these destinations during English Tourism Week. I hope that many more people will take the time to visit over the days ahead and also help spread the word about all that is on offer.”
Philip Cox added: “It’s fantastic to see so many of our much-loved tourist attractions re-open, especially as we celebrated English Tourism Week. The sector has faced an incredibly challenging time, making it all the more important to get out, support our local attractions and enjoy what our sub-region has to offer.”
