Residents’ Society or Parish Council?

Cheshire West and Chester Council is currently consulting on what form of community representation would be best for our area.  Two options include continuing with a body like ourselves or forming a Parish Council.  You can find out more by clicking here.

Please put your views forward.  You can do this by a simple on-line survey which asks how you put your views forward on what is happening in your area.  To reach this, click here.  Alternatively, you can email and quote ‘Community Governance Review Ellesmere Port’ in the subject field, phone 01244 972283 or write to The Research Team, CWaC Council, 4 Civic Way, Ellesmere Port CH65 0BE.

The consultation ends on 14th December.

Poppy Appeal Organiser Needed

Could you be Willaston’s new Poppy Appeal organiser?  After seven years in the role, Julie Jones is stepping down from organising the annual Poppy Appeal.  So someone else is needed to co-ordinate collectors and support people to raise funds.  If you would be interested in taking on this role, contact Julie on 0151 327 1334.



Do you fancy a gentle stroll around Willaston? In 1977 Willaston Residents’ & Countryside Society devised a series of walks to celebrate the Queen’s Silver Jubilee. The walks have recently been updated.  During 2015, thanks to funding from Merseyside and West Cheshire Area Ramblers, the Society has been able to purchase new way mark posts and signs for the walks and a dedicated team of volunteers has been steadily erecting them.

For further information on these walks, please see the following document willaston-village-walks or follow the link to the footpaths page
