Seasons Greetings

The Parish Council would like to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and happy New Year

Best Kept Village Awards

  • We are delighted to announce that Christleton won the Best Kept Village award in their category (1001-2500 population) this year. It is particularly pleasing as this is the last year of the competition.  The sponsors of the (ESSAR) event have pulled out and Cheshire Community Action have been unable to find another sponsor.
  • Christleton also won a ‘Little Gem’ award for The Square. This award is for a particular area or item the judge’s feel deserve a special mention when they do their rounds, so well done to everyone in The Square for contributing to this award.

King George's Fields Trust

The Trustees of KGF would like to thank both Christleton Village Fete and Christleton Village Show for their generous donations towards the upkeep of King George’s Playing Fields which is gratefully received and very much appreciated.

Future Projects

Just to reminder all the residents of Christleton there will be a short presentation at the 3rd December meeting of the Parish Council from John Heselwood, Policy & Development Manager from Cheshire Community Action to give guidance on producing a Neighbourhood Plan for Christleton.  He will advise on the neighbourhood planning process, resources and support available.  Residents of the village will be most welcome to attend and hear what he has to say.

Fishing at The Pit

Earlier this year the Parish Council were fortunate in obtaining the services of Will Wrigley, a resident of the village with many years’ experience in fishing, to act as volunteer Bank Warden to oversee the issuing of fishing permits to children of the village to fish at The Pit. He has been very active over the summer months engaging with the youngsters advising them of the correct equipment to use. Will has also made the area next to the fishing platforms more accessible by cutting back overhanging tree branches and vegetation, removing litter and encouraging anglers to ‘take their litter home’.

The Parish Council have also welcomed a volunteer Sub-Bank Warden, Steve Jones, to assist Will in all aspects of monitoring the fishing activities at The Pit and would like to thank them both for taking on these roles it is very much appreciated.
