The local Parish is covered by a number of GP Practices based in Northwich, Weaverham and Frodsham. The most popular, and the only one with a local Surgery (on Weaverham Road, Sandiway), is Danebridge Medical Centre. This page refers only to the Danebridge Patient Participation Group (PPG) - other GP Practices will have their own PPG groups and should be reached through their websites / offices.
The PPG, sometimes also known as the PRG (Patient Reference Group), continue to work with the Practice for the Practice. The PPG is a committee of voluntary patients who support the work of the practice – this unique partnership between patients and their practices is essential to achieving high quality and responsive care. The Danebridge committee meet monthly along with practice representatives to discuss matters arising and to discuss on-going suggested improvements within the practice. From 1 April 2015, it has been a requirement in the GP Contract for all practices to have a PPG.
The role of the PPG includes:
The PPG contains over a dozen volunteers, and a number of them live in our local Parish:
Sue McKenzie (PPG Chair), Russell Smith (Webmaster of this website), Sheila Bowker, Les James, May Long

Cuddington Bowling Club was founded in 1932 on a piece of ground leased to the village by the Wilbraham Estate. The Wilbraham family were the occupants of Delamere House which stood on the site of the nearby Delamere Park housing development. George Wilbraham presented a silver cup to the club that is still keenly contested annually by the club members and is considered the clubs most prestigious trophy.
The club evolved and now has around sixty members with teams that play in the local leagues in both the afternoon and evening divisions. All these teams are mixed with both gentlemen and lady members. In addition, there are regular club competitions for members, which are usually played at the weekends. The season extends from early April to mid September. The standard of the bowling ranges from beginner level to the more competitive. Beginners are always welcome and experienced club members are very happy to help beginners get started with advice on the game and on the necessary equipment. The equipment is actually nothing more than a pair of woods of the correct type and a pair of suitable shoes.
So why not consider taking up this Royal and Ancient game; a game for all ages; a game played by King Henry the Eighth and Sir Francis Drake amongst others. You can contact the club by completing the “Contact Us” section of this website. We will be happy to supply further information or simply answer your questions.
