Autumn 2020 Councillor awarded Gong

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 together’.

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.

Little Leigh Parish is a diverse rural community of 6.4 square kilometres with a population of approximately 550 occupying some 250 dwellings within the North Cheshire green belt. 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.

Little Leigh has a village centre south of Runcorn Road which includes St Michael and All Angels Church, the Village Hall, the Primary School and a housing estate. The parish comprises a substantial area of farmland and incorporates scattered farms and cottages with several clusters of ribbon development with a variety of different styles and materials.

It has a number of farms, livery yards, pubs and small businesses distributed about the parish.
