Stockton Heath has a long and interesting history, spanning from the original settlement in Anglo Saxon times, through to the formation of the Parish in 1896.
The Romans made Wilderspool Causeway, London Road and Chester Road as routes for their armies to march along, and these became Warrington’s main trade routes.
Today, Stockton Heath stands a a thriving village, with over 70 shops and thousands of residents.
Our Great British Spring Clean events
Many many thanks to all who turned out to the four events we held as part of Stockton Heath’s contribution to the Great British Spring Clean.
On Friday morning around 14 people arrived from all corners to congregate at Ackers Pit and spent a pleasant, if cold, couple of hours picking over the Pit and the surrounding streets. We collected about 12 bags full of rubbish.
By Friday afternoon the weather had taken a quite a turn for the worse and four souls plodded and splashed through the constant stream of rain, making their way along London Road, picking up various small pieces of litter and unblocking some drainage grids along the way.
Then came Saturday, dawning bright and clear and a congregation of 16 descended on Alexandra Park. Work was soon underway, picking along the beds and hedges, out to the Mill Lane Field and down into the Lumb Brook, hauling out plastic bottles, discarded carrier bags and used nappies!! Another full carload of bags found their way to the tip. The Friends of Alexandra Park opened up the Pavilion to the volunteers for a welcome cuppa and a biscuit.
Sunday morning started very early at 8am. Ten willing volunteers, battered by the slush that fell from the sky from the moment they started, picked, pulled and swept rubbish and leaves from shrubbery and pathways, filling over 20 bags and finally ended the session dripping water in Esquires with much welcomed (and discounted) hot drinks.
Heroes, every single one, from Parish Councillors, Friends of Alexandra Park, representatives of Stockton Heath Festival Trust and dedicated residents. Thanks also to the operatives of Sandy Lane Recycling Centre for accepting the rubbish collected and Esquires Coffee Shop for providing discounted drinks.
