Organisation Name Description
Clock Tower Community Cafe

Community Cafe based in the Gateway supporting Cheshire and Warrington Carers Trust.

Contact the Elderly

Once a month each elderly guest is collected from their home by a volunteer driver and taken to a volunteer host's home where they join a small group for tea, chat and friendship. The group is welcomed by a different host each month but the guest and drivers remain the same. This ensures that over time acquaintances turn into friends and loneliness is replaced by companionship.

Croft Primary School Parents Association

Our School has a well-deserved reputation for high academic achievement and social development which we are very proud of. The PTA play a vital role in school by organising family orientated events and activities throughout the year for our school community. The children love our events and as well as having fun we raise valuable funds for school that enhance the quality of our children’s learning environment.

The PTA is a Registered Charity, informally run by volunteer parents of the school. We usually meet once every half term. Everyone is welcome to attend our meetings and become actively involved.

Croft Village Memorial Hall

Croft Memorial Village Hall is at the heart of a thriving community, originally built in the 1960s it has provided locals and visitors alike with an ideal space in which to partake in a wide range of activities including bowling, dancing, bridge and tai-chi to name a few. The hall is run as a charity, mainly by a committee of volunteers, with all proceeds being ploughed back into the running and maintenance of the building for the benefit of everyone who uses it. People who remember going to parties at the hall as children are now bringing their own children and grandchildren and this continuity fosters a great sense of community spirit. The building comprises two halls the smaller of which is occupied by our resident pre-school, many of their pupils go on to join Croft Primary School which is just across the road and being so close, there is a great sense of continuity and cooperation between the two establishments. The halls are open to hire by anyone seeking a venue for their event and in addition to the regular weekly activities we frequently host parties, charity fundraising events, tea dances, meetings, workshops, exhibitions etc.

Cromwell Athletic JFC

Formed in 1996 the club was established to provide children organised junior football within the Westbrook area in Warrington. The club is involved in local league football and now, with exception of two teams, plays in the Warrington Junior Football League.

It has always been the philosophy of the Club to keep subscriptions and match fees to a minimum so that no child should ever be excluded for financial reasons. This means that we rely on the generosity of local businesses and individuals for support.

Earl of Stamford Morris Dancers

The Earl of Stamford Morris is a traditional mixed morris side based in the Cheshire village of Moore (now in Halton Borough), which is roughly halfway between Warrington and Runcorn. We dance mainly in the Cotswold morris style.

Between September and May we meet for practices every Tuesday evening at 8pm at the Milner Institute, Runcorn Road, Moore (and usually afterwards at a local pub). In the summer we dance out once a week at pubs across the region, often with other morris sides.

Emerging Futures

We develop diverse community based recovery networks and enable the recovery community to assess and understand their own health and social care needs. Where these needs are unmet, we will seek to empower the recovery community to create their own resources to help fill the gaps.
Volunteers (Community and Family Recovery coaches) play a big part in the process and our Coach training is fully accredited by LASER (formerly OCN)
