As part of its ongoing response to the changing COVID-19 situation, Halton Borough Council has taken the decision to close all of its community centres to the public at 5pm on Friday 20 March, until Sunday 26 April.  

These centres are:

Upton Community Centre, Bechers, Hough Green, Widnes

Ditton Community Centre, Dundalk Road, Widnes

Castlefields Community Centre, Village Square, Castlefields, Runcorn

Grangeway Community Centre, Grangeway, Runcorn

Murdishaw Community Centre, Barnfield Avenue, Runcorn

In addition, the Upton, Windmill Hill, Halton Brook and Ditton Children’s Centres will also close.

All existing activities planned in the centres have been cancelled.

We will take the decision to reopen the buildings based on the Government advice at the time.

We will be keeping our community up to date with any further changes to Council services via the local media, online at; on Twitter @haltonbc and on Facebook. If you do not have access to the internet, you can call us 0303 333 4300 – however, please note it may take longer than usual for your call to be answered.
