Volunteers needed for defibrillator checks

 This is an appeal for local volunteers to ensure our defibrillators are maintained. We now have two defibrillators, one at the Pavilion and one located inside the decommissioned phone box outside the Golden Lion pub. We will also soon have one outside the Village Hall too. We need a team of volunteers who will do a daily visual check to see that all is well and that the light is on. Ideally we will have volunteers who pass the sites on a daily basis so there is no extra effort involved. If you are interested in being involved in such a team please contact Jane Colville on 01829 752607 or janecolville1@gmail.com


We are eleven elected councillors who work together to represent the views of our community of approximately 1400 people. Our beautiful village is located at the foot of a distinctive sandstone ridge, six miles east of the historic City of Chester (see map).

We believe that we are a happy, well knit and thriving community - a place where people want to live and bring up children. As a Parish Council we try to represent the democratic view of the community to other communities and to Cheshire West and Chester (CWaC) Council. We also try to ensure new planning proposals meet the aspirations of residents and also work hard to protect and enhance the environment and community in which we live. To this end the community has developed and adopted a Neighbourhood Plan.

Each month we invite residents and interested parties to come to our public meetings, which are held in the Parish Rooms, West End, on the second Monday of each month. Please come along and share your views with us.

On this website you will find all you need to know about Parish Council meetings and notices and a list of contacts if you'd like to get in touch with us.

Kind regards

from Jane Colville (Chair) and all the Parish Councillors
