We welcome our new Parish Rector.

Heather Carty. Heather’s service of Induction and Installation as Rector will take place on Tuesday 12 February at 7.30pm at St Peter’s Church, Plemstall. We congratulate Heather on her appointment and look forward to the continuation of her ministry among us.”
The community is located to the East of Chester consisting of a diverse mixture of 1,200 modern homes, old cottages, gated developments and country piles. Around 2,500 residents. Many commute by the excellent motorway links to Manchester and Liverpool whose airports are only 30 minutes away. The London rail service takes 2 hours 12 minutes.
We have three fine pub restaurants to choose from; Trout Fishery, Shop and Post Office, and a regular bus service. Our Village Hall is a popular meeting place which hosts events and has a bar, and modern meeting and kitchen facilities. The area is surrounded by grazing land with farming being a traditional activity.
We benefit by being close (2km) to Chester but far enough away to be rural. The primary school is typical of a small village community and achieves excellent grades. A quality B&B is in the centre of the village with larger hotels close by.
The local Anglican Church has a history dating back to the Stone Age and on the opposite spectrum we have a massive Shopping Mall, ‘Cheshire Oaks’ and the ‘Coliseum’ about seven miles away. We have the famous Hammond School of dance and drama in the village. A new Tennis Club has recently opened with outside courts, including a new leisure area with intside courts. It looks good and managed by volunteers so go along and have a look.
