Judith Critchley

I was born in Crowton and live in Frodsham. Kingsley is a lovely village and I regularly support its local businesses. Since 2016 I have been a Councillor for Frodsham Town Council and have actively engaged with surrounding local parish councils. Kingsley and Frodsham share similar concerns e.g. car parking, protecting the green belt, provision of play areas, the Halton Curve – to name a few.

I hope to put my experience to good use in serving the Kingsley community during this next council year.

I am a retired Civil Servant, my later years working in London. My career has allowed me to develop a wide range of skills that I put to good use in my council work. I started off in payroll, finance and business analysis. In later years I worked on health and safety legislation – primarily workplace regulations; fireworks and explosives legislation and carriage of dangerous goods. [Dept of Employment; Health & Safety Executive; Dept for Transport]

As a Regulator I liaised with industry, other regulators and trade unions/professional bodies; I lead the UK delegations to UNECE in Geneva and EC in Brussels on International Agreements; EU Directives and European Standards; instructed HSE/DfT Solicitors on drafting UK legislation; drafted, collated and analysed responses to UK wide consultations on new legislation; and researched, drafted and published guidance on legislation.

My wife Marian and I moved to Kingsley in 2012, and have been actively involved in village activities such as Kingsley Players, Kingsley Garden Club and Marian is a Leader in Kingsley & Crowton Brownies. I joined the Parish Council after I retired in 2015, as a Parish Councillor and was Chair from May 2017 to January 2018, when I had to step down due to serious health issues. I have now rejoined the council at the May 2019 elections, and look forward to working with my fellow councillors to maintain the ethos of the village, whilst moving it forward to ensure the village is a vibrant place for both young and old and can develop rather than stagnate.

Playing field and play areas

We moved into Kingsley in 1978 with three young children, who now have families of their own and have moved away.

Now retired (almost) having worked in IT since 1966, starting with the UKAEA, then Business Link and now self-employed.

I have now been on the Parish Council for ten years. I joined to see how I could help it represent and work for the best interests of Kingsley.

Danny Moores

Like most of the family before me, I have lived in Kingsley since birth in 1971.

I attended the local Kingsley Community School and Nursery before moving on to attend Hartford High School. I was a member of the local cubs and scouts and have been a member of The Hurst Methodist Church for many years !

I have lived on The Hurst and am now on Chapel Lane and first served on the Parish Council from 2008 to 2019 serving as Chair twice during that period (a proud moment given that my mum had also served as Chair in the 70’s/80’s), and then re-joined in February 2021.

I work from home for ‘Natural England’ – the government’s adviser for the natural environment in England where I have been involved in working on the community forest project, delivering the CROW Access legislation, the development of the England Coast Path and management of the nation’s National Trails.

I try to keep myself fit with plenty of walking, running and cycling around the village and lanes of Cheshire and further afield – although that is becoming harder and slower as the years take their toll !

I’ve re-joined to try and do my bit for the village I’ve lived in all my life – I might not always get it right, but I’ll always try to do my best for the village and its community.

Any issues or if you think I can help, then get in touch.

We have lived in Kingsley since 1983 during which time my wife Mary & I have brought up our three daughters here; nowadays we welcome our grandchildren to our home to enjoy and explore the fields, streams, and woods of this lovely village.

I am Cheshire born, from Macclesfield, of a family with deep roots in the County. I have spent all my working life here with ICI and then AstraZeneca firstly in research but mainly as an international commercial manager. As a self-employed consultant I worked for a time with the Foreign Office as a Trade Advisor for Latin America.

I am a local hobbyist beekeeper.

Graham Warburton

I was born on the family farm, Hatley Farm at Frodsham in 1958.

I moved to Depmore Farm at Kingsley in 1994. I have run both family farms for the past 35 years, with my wife Elizabeth. I have two grown-up children.

I have served on the parish council for 13 years and as cemetery co-ordinator for 12 years, overseeing the extension in 2005, completion of the new entrance in 2007, and replacement of the stolen gates in 2009. I served as Chairman in 2006, and again in 2014

I am interested in all farming, conservation, countryside and local community issues. I have held office at NFU Regional Level. I enjoy watching cricket, supporting my son who is a keen player, and following my football team Man Utd. I will endeavour to continue to work for the good of the local community. I will be happy to discuss any issues you may have. Just get in touch.
