The night will consist of 3 great acts, a fabulous auction and raffle with some really amazing prizes. Tickets are just £6 each and are available from our clerk & event organiser, Mrs Carolyn Cross & her husband, John.

If you would like to make a night of it, they’ve negotiated a great rate with Wrightington Country Club of £85 for a double room and £70 for a single room, including breakfast, use of the spa facilities, car parking and wifi. All the proceeds will go to Cancer Research UK so, why not join them and help them smash last year’s amount of £3950 which was raised on the night.

Mossie Close Play Area

The Parish Council has received some funding from Chorley Council which they are planning to use on PHASE III enhancements to Mossie Close Play Area, at the rear of the houses on Leeson Avenue and Willow Drive, and would like to determine the views of the residents, all school children and young people of Charnock Richard on the following suggestions:

  • The inclusion of a Multi-Use-Games-Area (MUGA) on the site. An area with a hard tarmac surface which would meet the needs of multiple sports within one play area whether it is netball, football, hockey, cricket or basketball.

OR

  • A Zip-Wire, a Viking Swing, a See-Saw, and a Rocking Horse.

It is hoped that the provision of either of these schemes, will add to the existing play provision, will enhance the leisure, play and amenities available to the young people of the Parish and, will make Mossie Close Play Area an all-age inclusive play space for Charnock Richard.

You can download the feedback form below and return it to a Parish Councillor, School, Scouts & Guides,
