6 things to do in Cheshire this summer
Here at PSD, we’re pleased to announce that we have a brand new office, located on Tanners Lane in Warrington. From this second base, right in the heart of the town centre, we’re offering a range of short- and long-term rental services – including both car and van hire in Warrington and the surrounding areas of Cheshire. And we have the ideal rental vehicle to suit everyone’s needs.
It’s fair to say, we’re incredibly excited about our new home. And to celebrate this major milestone in our business’s development, we asked our Warrington-based team to pull together some of the best things to do in Cheshire – including fun days out and the most interesting places to visit.
The kid’s school holidays are just around the corner. The final lockdown restrictions will soon be lifted. And the sun has finally put its hat on. So, why not take a look at our suggestions?
