Welcome to the Great Barrow Website

 

The Corona virus pandemic has shown what a fantastic, supportive community we have in Barrow. It has been brilliant to see people sharing experiences and pulling together to help out their friends and others in the community.

We are conscious though that some elderly or vulnerable people who need to “cocoon” at home may slip through the net. So, we are using various channels to remind everyone to keep an eye out for their neighbours, help where they can, and share any information that may be helpful for them. This web site is a great way to do this.  So, if you have any information that you think might be useful, please send it to:  careforbarrow@greatbarrow.com and we can add this to the site.

The Parish of Barrow lies on a low sandstone ridge towards the western side of the Cheshire plain, some five miles to the east of Chester. It is a thriving area with a strong community spirit, winning awards for Community Spirit and Best Kept Village.

Barrow is a close knit community and anxious not to lose village traditions while keeping up with the times. We hope you enjoy your visit.

We would love to receive your comments,  suggestions, news items, articles of interest, local photographs etc.

You can contact us through the “Contact” page or by email to barrowchesterwebsite@gmail.com
