CHAIN (Community Help, Advice, Information & News) was formed in 1999 when discussions revealed
that people wanted a place where it would be easy for them to talk
about problems such as money, anti-social behaviour, home repairs, etc,
and contact the various agencies like Neighbourhood Watch,
NHS queries, Town Council, District Council, County Council, etc.
The formal company 'CHAIN Lillington Ltd' was created to fund this project.
The Crown Routes Consortium was formed in 2015 as an umbrella
organisation seeking funding from the Council and other bodies to support
several local community organisations in Lillington and the Crown Ward, namely
CHAIN Lillington Ltd,
Lillington Baby Centre,
Lillington Youth Centre,
Lillington Community Centre,
Crown Community Cafe.
