Cronton Spring Clean

Five people turned up to pick litter together  on  3rd March 2017, as part of the Keep Britain Tidy Great British Spring Clean, and between us we gathered 38 bags. Another 2 were picked by a volunteer earlier so that made a total of 40 bags.
Thank you to those who joined in.
We managed to tidy up Sandy Lane, Cronton Road, Hall Lane, The Pasture, Penny Lane and Tue Lane and we’re grateful to Knowsley and Halton Neighbourhood Teams for promptly removing the bags.

Thank you to the eight volunteers who joined together for the village clean-up on Friday 6th November. In all, 30 bags of litter were collected and we’re sure you will agree the village looked very tidy afterwards.

Thanks also are due to Knowsley MBC Neighbourhood Services team for removing the bags promptly after the litter-pick.

Spring Litter-Pick 27th March 2015

Friday 27th March saw 14 willing volunteers meet together with Cronton Pathways Project to clear litter along a number of our local roads and paths. For the first time we were joined by an Australian visitor, Wendy, who saw our poster and decided to come, along with Harvey the dog!

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. 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 spread of litter further.

Cronton Crackshots Boccia team at practice November 2012

We are a group of local volunteers and residents from Cronton, who are passionate about where we live.  Our aim is simple: to make Cronton as attractive a place as possible to live and visit.  We carry out twice yearly clean-ups of the village involving villagers, volunteers, TCV groups and by working with both of our local primary schools and the local 6th Form college. We are supported by both local authorities, Knowsley and Halton, to whom we are very grateful for removing the bags of rubbish we collect after our clean-ups.

For the last four years we have been leading Walks for Health for local people to enjoy the pathways in the area and improve their health. In November 2014 we received  Accreditation with the national body of Walking for Health, which makes us a valued part of a recognised movement that aims to improve the nation’s health through walking. This is supported by Macmillan Cancer Care and The Ramblers. At the same time we also celebrated the achievement of our first walker to clock up 100 hours of Walks for Health. Three more walkers subsequently achieved their 100 hours at the end of 2015.

During the last four years we have introduced Chair-based exercise sessions, Boccia, Nordic walking and a craft group has begun meeting, all on a weekly basis. If you have time on your hands, are looking for exercise, fun or just company come and join us at Holy Family Club on Mondays for Chair-Based Exercise from 1.30 to 2.30pm; or on Tuesdays for Walks for Health or Boccia both from 1 to 2.45pm, including a cuppa and a chat. The craft group meets at 10 am on Wednesdays in the Parish Council Office, 7, Hampton Drive. Chair-based exercise involves a weekly fee of £1 payable in advance for 5 weeks at a time, but all the other activities are free of charge, except for a 50p contribution for refreshments.

You will be most welcome at any of these activities.
