Should Warrington become a City

Warrington is situated along side the River Mersey and is sandwiched between Manchester and Liverpool. Warrington has a population of over 192,000 and is one of the largest UK towns. Many people desribe Warrington as a boom town, yet still the Government fail to honour Warrington with City Status. In 1993, Warrington was the target of an IRA bomb which took the lives of 2 young innocent children. Since this Warrington has been heavily involved in the Peace Process in Northern Ireland with the construction of a Peace Centre in the town which see\'s many people from Ireland and Warrington coming together to help make peace. Warrington has also grown ecomony wise, with several top class businesses now based within the area. These include Vodafone, United Utilities, BT, Airmiles plus many more. Warrington also has one of the regions best value for properties on the market compared to over City\'s around the UK. Warrington is now seen as a major sports place since the construction of The Halliwell Jones Stadium, home to the Warrington Wolves. The stadium is a non-smoking arena and was the first in the UK to enforce this. Warrington does have excellent transport links with two major rail stations in the City Centre and 3 major motorways running along side the City. All we ask is that you sign the pertition to support Warrington becoming a City for the future.
