Welcome to the new-look Cronton Website


Cronton Spring Clean-Up on Friday 27th March 2015.

Friday saw 14 willing volunteers join together with Cronton Pathways Project to clear the litter along a number of our local roads and paths. For the first time we were joined by a visitor from Australia, Wendy, who saw the poster and decided to come! She’s spending a retirement gap year travelling in the UK, house-sitting by way of her accommodation. She even brought the dog, Harvey from her latest house, with her. He had a great time too.
The weather was very kind to us and enabled us to clear Penny Lane, Tue Lane, Chapel Lane, Sandy Lane and the eastern section of Cronton Road of 60 bags of rubbish. Pex Hill Avenue and the perimeter of the field to the west of the reservoir were done earlier in the week so it was a comprehensive pick this time. This takes us to over 1000 bags collected! Thank you to all for your hard work today. The village looks neat and tidy now.
We’re grateful to Knowsley MBC Neighbourhood Team as usual for removing the bags when we had finished. If ever you see any fly-tipping in the village ring Knowsley on 443 2400 to report it. They always respond quickly and this prevents the further spread of litter.


Have your say on the proposals of  the Local Government Boundary Commission for the new council ward boundaries across Knowsley Borough

Go to https://consultation.lgbce.org.uk/node/3670 and draw your own boundary. Also if you want the name of our village to be included in the Ward name let them know. Their proposal is to call it ‘Whiston’.

The consultation closes on the 6th April 2015


We are beginning our website again this year and it will take some time to upload the information we previously had on the old one so please be patient as we do this.

We hope you will find it useful, interesting and informative. We will include aspects of the village which we believe people may want to see, out of interest or for easy access to information.

It will be updated regularly by our administrator and as the site develops we are hoping for interaction with our readers.

We will keep you informed of activities being held, including the Gala, Parish Council meetings, Coffee Mornings, Cronton Clean-Ups and other community events as they arise, so that you can be involved in the life of the village.



If you wish to contact the editor of the website please email bess.smith23@yahoo.co.uk or telephone the Parish Council Office on 420 0235 and leave a message.

Contributions of photographs and information about Cronton would be most welcome.

Thank you.
