Welcome to ‘Working for Walton’ a community group formed in January 2016 by a group of like-minded friends keen to revive community spirit in our wonderful village, Walton.
We work together to organise village events, provide support to businesses and other groups in Walton and fundraise for various community projects. We’re passionate about bringing the residents of Walton together and rekindling the community spirit of years ago, we’d love you to help us along the way too.
Our website details all our events and information about our group, for any more information or to get involved just contact us above.
