A SOUTH Cheshire MP was shown more about DIY at one of the largest retail developments in Crewe's history.
Gwyneth Dunwoody, Labour MP for Crewe and Nantwich, visited the giant new B&Q Warehouse store in Weston Road, Crewe.
She was given a guided tour by regional manager Simon Keelan.
Mrs Dunwoody learned more about the equality policies that B&Q has put in place with regard to age, disability, cultural diversity, gender and sexual orientation.
Since opening in October this year, the store has created more than 170 jobs in the area.
Mrs Dunwoody said: 'I was delighted to visit a firm who are employing so many people from Crewe from a range of age groups.
'They are offering an excellent in-house training programme and their presence in the town can only be good.'
Regional manager Mr Keelan said: 'We are thrilled about Mrs Dunwoody's visit. She came to the store to hear about the policies and initiatives in place that make B&Q a better neighbour to the community.
'Our over-50s employment policy is widely respected throughout the industry for allowing staff reaching retirement age the opportunity to continue to work and specifically for placing no age restrictions on people applying to join B&Q.'
