Davenham Village Resilience Plan

In liaison with Cheshire West & Chester (CW&C), Davenham Parish Council has commenced the development of a Community Resilience Plan. The Plan will hold data that allows potential assistance, of all kinds, to be rendered in the event of a serious or emergency incident in the village (e.g. local tradesman, temporary building or accommodation provision etc.). 

The Plan in no way attempts to take the place of the responsibilities or roles of the designated bodies or first responders but will collate information on skills and services from within the Davenham community which could potentially be called upon should the need arise.  

The Parish Council are keen to hear from businesses as well as individuals. If you are willing to potentially provide a service or equipment in the event of an emergency situation then we would like to hear from you for inclusion in the Plan. Please send details of the service or skill you can provide along with contact details to Thank you for your support.

Laburnum Road Playing Field

Those of you who visit Laburnum Playing Field will have seen the new Fields in Trust plaque (picture attached).  This recognises that the land has been legally protected for recreational use, keeping it that way for future generations.  We are currently going through the same process to protect Butcher’s Stile.
