Local Information

Some of this information has been downloaded from other service sites.  We try to keep it up to date but can never be sure that a new version has not been created.  Therefore, you should always check with the provider of the service.  If you find any information that is out of date, please let the webmaster or Parish Clerk know.


A defibrillator is on order and is expected to be installed this Spring (2022).  It has been funded partly by residents, partly by a charitable company: AEDdonate and partly by the Round Table.  The defibrillator is planned to be installed at the entrance to "The Tin Shed" on Park Lane.  Postcode is CW5 7QX and the defibrillator is located in the drive entrance.  This location is roughly central to Hatherton.  Other defibrillators nearby are at Hankelow (chapel), Audlem (four locations), Stapeley  (limited times), Wybunbury (Village Hall) and Bridgemere (school).  It is advisable to find and make a note of the nearest defibrillator to where you live.  Training in use of the defibrillator is available - contact the Parish Clerk.
