In 2016 the three primary schools in Aintree and Melling worked together on a local history project to learn about and to honour the lives of the local soldiers who fought and died in WW1.
Melling Parish Council had a very successful community clean up day recently with a great turn out from local residents.
I go to Jersey each year to see my daughter. This year, I went in June to take part in the Around the Island Walk, which has become one of the largest one-day fundraising events held in Jersey.
Melling Christmas Wish Celebration
On the 5th December the community of Melling came together to celebrate the festive period at the Melling Christmas Wish Celebration. There was an amazing turnout of families young and old who saw the Christmas tree lights switched on, with an appearance from Father Christmas who gave away selection boxes to all children and adults whilst people enjoyed hot chocolate, mince pies and cake with songs sung by the children from Melling Nursery, poems by Melling Primary School, carols by Melling Community Gospel Choir and performances by Wend Searle Dance Academy.
The Melling and Aintree WW1 Exhibition was opened today with a moving remembrance service performed by Aintree Family Church Revd Geoff Bentley.
Councillor Mr. Chad Thompson, Melling Parish Council’s newly elected Chairman has already given a fresh and invigorating boost to a Parish with much to celebrate. He took the initiative of hiring a large marquee at Wheeler Drive Playing Field, to accommodate the one hundred residents expected at Mellings’ first Community Awards Event on Sunday 25 September 2016.
Are you a young person aged between 15-18 living within Melling and would like to take an active role in the future of your community, then this could be for you.
There are currently two vacancies that the Parish Council wish to fill by co-option.

June saw the return of the amazing scarecrows to Melling. Once again the creations were outstanding and brought lots of pleasure to residents and passers-by.
Congratulations to the winners, and a big well done to everyone who created the fantastic scarecrows, and to St Thomas Church members for organising this wonderful festival which has become a highlight in Melling’s calendar.
As part of the bicentenary celebrations of the Leeds Liverpool canal, this year the Canal and River Trust have launched the Every Mile Counts project. The project hopes to encourage local groups and individuals to adopt their local stretch of canal and its milepost leaving a lasting legacy long after the end of the bicentenary celebrations.
A huge thank you to the Melling Cubs and Beavers who turned up with such enthusiasm, along with their Leaders and parents, to start the Melling Canal Bicentenary Celebrations with a canal clean up.
It is with sadness to inform you that Councillor Alan Brown has recently passed away.
After the success of last year’s Community Clean Ups, Melling Parish Council are pleased to announce that we will be running another three clean ups over this Spring and Summer. We hope that the events will attract the same enthusiasm as last time.
