Our aim:

“You can please some of the people some of the time, all of the people some of the time, some of the people all of the time but you can never please all of the people all of the time.”

Abraham Lincoln

Our aim is to please most of the people most of the time.

Our Role & Responsibilities


The Council's key role is to represent the interests of local residents and to lobby authorities such as the Cheshire West and Chester Council. As a democratically elected body, the Council's voice is always listened to.


In this Parish we are responsible for developing and maintaining the various playing fields we own and making sure that planning applications are consistent with the character of the area. We monitor the state of public footpaths and the general natural environment ensuring that litter is properly dealt with, and are often the first port of call for community groups and initiatives asking for support in financial or advisory matters.


If you have a non-urgent policing matter, please ring 101 and our local PCSO will investigate.
