Warm Hub for residents
In the currently prevailing conditions, the Parish, in common with many others in this country, is keen to help those who need special care or assistance during this winter and beyond. To this end, we have identified that there are places in or close to our parish where warmth is available. These are listed below:
There is a Warm Spaces Hub available at Hankelow Community Hall (at the Methodist Chapel) every Friday afternoon between 2pm and 4pm - without charge although donations will be welcomed. (More information in this leaflet.)
Every Wednesday between 11.30am and 2pm, ADCA [Audlem & District Community Action] run a coffee/lunch club in the Hankelow Community Hall where you can also drop in for a warm welcome, coffee or you can have a warm lunch for a small charge - or just stay to keep warm with some company.
There are public bars at the Boar's Head, Walgherton and the White Lion, Hankelow where coffee or tea can be purchased during opening times.
The Dagfields Craft and Antiques centre has a cafe serving food and drinks "all day, every day" until 5pm.
All of these options depend on getting the message to people who have a particular need for these services. The Parish Council is keen to help if you become aware of a resident who might need support but may not be aware of what is available or how to get there. If this is the case, please feel free to contact our Parish Clerk.
Go-Too bus service extended
The Go-Too Bus service has now added new destinations, now including Walgherton, and includes Bridgemere Garden and Dagfields. There are various 'virtual' bus stops making it really accessible for everyone. It's really easy to use, just download the app or you can phone up to book. It's only £3 a journey, and runs Monday to Saturday 7am-9pm. All the information can be found on their website here. It’s like a taxi you just share with other people only much cheaper!

We are really pleased to announce that Hatherton & Walgherton Parish Council has its own defibrillator! We are so grateful to everyone who raised money to fund it, special thanks to residents, Crewe & Nantwich Round Table and finally AEDdonate. Our 'defib' is halfway down Park Lane, the address is: The Tin Shed, Park Lane, Hatherton, CW5 7QX
Other nearby locations of defibs are at: Hankelow Chapel, Wybunbury Hall, Bridgemere CofE School.
AEDdonate also provides online training via Zoom for anyone & everyone, please do take advantage of this. For further details, contact your Parish Clerk at email@example.com
Wishing you all good health and hoping that our 'defib' is never needed!
