    Frodsham is a nice little town, however the majority- of people whom live there are toffee nosed wealthy inhabitants. Although I wouldn’t class this as a chavtown, it certainly has Runcorn and E.Port close by. It also has surrounding villages and towns (Helsby,Elton,Manley,Alvanley). At night, the skatepark is full of wannabe gangsters with pretend scouse accents and WKD’s. Main Street gets busy with clubbers usually from Runcorn who are intoxicated and aggressive.
