Traffic problems in Christleton are in the forefront of many peoples minds in view of the current planning application by the High School. If you needed any reminding of how serious the traffic issues are in the village you should read an illustrated presentation made to Christleton Parish Council by the Traffic Action Group.

In view of the High School's current planning application and the Christleton Parish Council's decision to oppose it on the grounds of increasing traffic flows through the village; it would seem to be an opportune moment to provide some additional information. A link is now available on the Traffic Policies page to an interesting report prepared by the Traffic Action Group concerning Cut-through Journeys in Christleton.

The St. James' Parish Magazine for February 2012 is now available. Nice snowy cover although at the moment its just rain we have to contend with in Christleton. David Cummings in his Nature Notes has seen daffodils in Surrey. Just crocus in my garden to enjoy but I have seen the cormorants at The Pit that he mentions. And there is lots more to read so go and enjoy.

It been a fair wait but I can say it has all been very worthwhile as the first ever 2 DVD Set titled The Parish of Christleton is now available to buy for £12. My congratulations to Judy Smith on such a wonderful production. She has a lovely pleasant recording voice which just adds to the pleasure of her perambulations round Christleton. I am sure it is going to be of great interest and a big hit with the residents of Christleton as well as everyone who knows or has visited our beautiful village. Highly recommended and for the moment available from David Cummings at £12. Email David on how to get your copy at firstname.lastname@example.org

When I started building the site in 2000 I had a kind of logo featuring a swan flying over the Pump House. A few years later the swan became the favicon for the site. If you look to the left of the url in the web site you are browsing you will see sometimes a very small image. A miniature logo in effect. The technical name for this is a favicon. Christleton has one showing a swan flying on a black background. I have adapted this image and now made it a logo for the Christleton web site. You will start to see it at the top of many of the web pages along with the title. Some pages may need a little adapting but will see how it goes as a new look for the home page and some other pages is in the pipeline.

It is nearly nine years ago that David Cummings wrote a series of articles about life in Christleton Hall in days gone by for inclusion in St. James' Parish Magazine. I thought they should be brought together and presented in new way on the web site. So now you will find this fascinating story with illustrations under the Village pull down menu item and titled The Old Hall.
Only 11th January and yet another addition to the web site. A collection of photographs taken by David Cummings at the Carol Service outside St. James' Church, Christleton on Christmas Eve. Enjoy.

If you are wondering where all the money raised by Christleton Fete in 2011 went then go to the Fete Page where I have added today an article written by the Fete Committee which should answer your question.
Following yesterdays big addition with the Story of Christleton Pit there has been yet another new section added to the site. Readers of St. James' Parish Magazine will already be familiar with Nature Notes written by David Cummings. He has started a new monthly feature called Wildlife Watch which will keep you in touch with what he has seen in and around Christleton and also on his travels. The January edition is now available on the web site.
