About Us

The 2019 local elections saw a change in the ward’s boundaries, due to a reduction in the total number of Borough Cllrs from 75 to 70 leading to changes in wards and boundaries across the Borough. Weaver & Cuddington remains a 3 member ward covering the existing Parishes of Acton Bridge, Cuddington & Sandiway and Weaverham, and Crowton and Norley became part of the ward. Dutton Parish (Dutton & Bartington) moved into Marbury ward.

Weaver and Cuddington Ward is represented by 2 Conservative Councillors Charles Fifield and Paul Williams, and 1 independent Councillor, who were elected in May 2019 to represent the ward on Cheshire West and Chester Borough Council, as Conservatives. The ward comprises the 5 Parishes of Acton Bridge, Crowton, Cuddington & Sandiway (includes Delamere Park) Norley (includes Hatchmere) and Weaverham.

Charles and Paul try to attend Parish Council meetings in the ward and are usually available before or after meetings. Any urgent matters can be raised directly by telephone or email (see Contact Us page).
