Jenny Jones has been awarded the British
Empire Medal for services over 40 years to the community in Little Leigh
Cheshire. She has been described as the ‘heartbeat’
and’ lynchpin’ of Little Leigh and as ‘the glue that holds the social fabric
She ran the Youth Club which became the
source of social, creative and individually focussed fun. Young people who went
on to become volunteers developed skills such as time and money management,
creative problem solving and the confidence to manage groups of people.
Jenny also set up craft workshops for all
ages, drop- in groups for people who would not otherwise meet each other, film
nights and coffee mornings. She organises the Friendly Club which provides
food, fun and laughter and a change of scene for those who are not mobile
together with trips out.
She has been a parish councillor for 13
years and has helped organise numerous village shows and events.
With typical modesty Jenny says that the
accolade is for all who have been involved.
This is the official Website of Little Leigh Parish Council designed to provide what we hope will be a valuable resource of information about the Parish Council and Village in general to all residents of and visitors to the village.

It is located to the north of the River Weaver, four miles from Northwich and is bisected by the A533 Runcorn Road. It is bounded by the A49 Warrington Road to the west, extending eastwards almost to Barnton and the parish of Whitley to the north.
