IMPORTANT! The Tennis Club have submitted a planning application for outside lighting to illuminate the courts at dusk and later evening. It seems lighting of this type can be focused to minimise light incursion problems. We have yet to see the plans so put the word around please especially for residents living around the boundary. The PC will publish here details when known.

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; Farm tearoom, 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, in the centre of the Village is our Methodist Church. Seven miles away we have the massive Shopping Malls; ‘Cheshire Oaks’ and the ‘Coliseum’.
Close by we have the world famous Hammond School of dance and drama. Our new village addition is the recently built Tennis Club which has been a great success attracting all ages. It benefits from inside and outside courts, including a new leisure area. It offers a great opportunity for children to learn about tennis, exercise, and have fun. It is and managed by volunteers so go and have a look, you will be welcomed.
