The Parish Council are providing room space at the Village Hall for the local Post Office to use until they reinstate their operation fully.  We should do our best to support the family in this difficult time as a result of the recent fire damage.

SPEEDWATCH;   We need volunteers to be trained to use this scheme to ensure that drivers be made aware of excessive speed on a number of local roads by measuring the speed with a radar gun and advising those drivers by mail of thier excesses.  ( no legal enforcement taken).  Contact the Clerk for further information.
The Parish is located two miles East of Chester, close to the M53 motorway with quick access to Manchester and Liverpool areas. London by rail in 2hours 12 minutes.  Home to about 2,200 people with 980 properties. We have an ancient church as above with links to the first Bishop of Canterbury dating back to 900AD. The village infant school is popular and highly rated. A local ancient flour grinding mill on the river Gowy is undergoing renovation and hopefully will be opened as an education centre.
We have three pubs with dining facilities.  A Caravan park which is highly recommended. A recently built tennis club with ten courts, and the world renowned Hammond School of dance and drama. Our farm tea room is a popular meeting place and close to the cycle track (was railway) into Chester and beyond.  The ‘Springfield’ children’s play park had the installation of a ‘Pump Track’. The village hall is well used by many groups and has a large hall with kitchen; meeting, and bar facilities. If you google ‘Mickle Trafford’ you will see what we have around us.
