Fiona Bruce MP, who attended the service and spoke in support of the award for Janet Chisholm BEM said afterwards: "Having known and worked alongside Janet Chisholm BEM, Ken Kingston, and David Cooke in various ways over the 13 years I have had the privilege of being MP for Middlewich I know first-hand the substantial contribution all three have made to local community life.

"I commend the Mayor of Middlewich, Councillor Colin Coules, for taking the initiative or recognising their contributions by granting them the Freedom of Middlewich, which all three very much deserve."
