John & Eileen Kerrigan deserve the adult Citizenship award due to their selfless voluntary service to the community for many years.
John & Eileen have lived in the village for a considerable number of years. They both set aside many hours between 2012-2015 in helping create a Village Plan - John is the 'go-to man' whenever the Parish Council need a village consultation carrying out; his voluntary work in the community is second to none!
John was also Chairman of the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group during the production of the “Neighbourhood Plan” in 2015-2019, which now forms part of the Development Plan for Cheshire West and Chester Council, and this plan is taken into account when planning applications are decided by Cheshire West.
More recently, John was the village spokesperson for the resident’s action group, “Save Our Surgery”
He is also a school Governor at St Nicholas High school.
Eileen is a long serving parish councillor and has worked tirelessly to make the village a better place to live. She was instrumental in the refurbishment of the Norley Road playing fields in 2018, and the creation of the new car park at Mere Lane in 2016.
Eileen, sat on the Neighbourhood Plan committee as well as the Village Plan. When it comes to big projects like this, John and Eileen very much work as a team.
Currently Eileen is as busy as ever liaising with Highways about the installation of Speed Indicator Devices (SIDs), which residents requested back in 2012.
