Beeston Railway Station Campaign

Here is a request from the team working to re-open the Station: The Government is currently deciding where to locate Great British Railways (GBR), the new body that will replace Network Rail and oversee rail transport. Crewe had made it to the final shortlist of 6, and the Government are asking people to vote on their preferred location. How does this help our station? Well, if Crewe is successful, GBR is unlikely to need much persuasion that a station 7.5 minutes away in a pleasant place to live is a good idea! You can vote here…

Voting is open until 15 August. Thanks!

Defibrillators

The village has 2 defibrillators, one outside the Village Hall and one at the Pavilion. When you access the defibrillator it talks you through what to do in an emergency.

The previous indoor defibrillator at the Nags Head is now at the Dysart, but will only be available during opening hours. Thanks to both pubs for hosting this.

The village of Bunbury lies at the western edge of the Cheshire Plain some 3 miles from Tarporley and 12 miles south east of the city of Chester. Little is known of its history prior to the Norman Conquest but it is generally accepted that the name is of Saxon origin and it is thought that there was a Christian place of worship on the site of the present parish church long before 1066. Read more about our history.
