Kidsgrove Town Council has been at the heart of the Kidsgrove community since its conception back in 1894. Formed with the amalgamation of the Civic Parishes of Hardings Wood, Kidsgrove, Newchapel and Talke, Kidsgrove Urban District Council became Kidsgrove Town Council in 1974 and 128 years on is still the beating heart of Kidsgrove.
Whilst the Council continues to deal with its core business of Allotments, Environmental concerns and Planning responses, the key focus for its elected Councillors has always been its residents, and this was brought into no greater focus than during the recent ‘Covid’ years.
What we did
Whilst the Town Council offered the use of the Town Hall free of charge to various volunteer groups and health authorities, covering Covid-19 Testing and Support Schemes, a small group of Councillors were acutely aware that as we left Lockdown, our residents would be eager to meet with friends and socialise again. The need for key events would be central to enabling that to happen.
