Serving Rainhill community
The Parish Council has responsibility for the 8 parks that are located
in the village. In total these parks provide 43 acres of public open
space for use of the residents. Two of the parks are used to provide 12
football pitches for local teams.
A number of the parks contain children's play equipment which has been
provided by the Parish Council working in partnership with St. Helens Borough
Council. In 1999 two new sets of children's play equipment were installed
at a total cost of £70,000 with the Parish Council contributing
£15,000. In 2000/2001 a further two sets of children's play equipment
were installed with the Parish Council contributing a further £15,000
towards the cost.
The village has numerous voluntary organisations that provide social
and cultural activities for residents. A number of organisations exist
to cater for the welfare of residents ranging from children's play
groups to senior citizen's clubs. The village also has three long established
theatre groups. Many of these organisations meet in the spacious village hall.
The education facilities in Rainhill consist of a nursery school, four
primary schools and a high school. Parish Councillors serve on the
governing bodies of all schools. The Parish Council has a commitment to
work with the schools in improving the environment of Rainhill by
making funds available for this purpose.
