Eastern Parishes Community Hub

About Eastern Parishes

The Eastern Parishes area benefits from strong community involvement from schools, churches and community groups as well as Samlesbury and Cuerdale Parish Council. A number of small organisations such as the Gregson Green Group engage the local community in various activities.

Activities for young people include Scouts Groups and Brownies. There are also football and cricket clubs which run activities for both young people and adults, including Gregson Lane Football Club and Walton-le-Dale Cricket Club.

There are six churches in the Eastern Parishes; Trinity Methodist, St Leonard's, Our Lady and St Patrick's, All Saints, St Leonard the Less, and St Mary and St John. The churches have strong links with all the schools across Eastern Parishes, including five primary schools. These churches often run community activities and also have strong links with the five primary schools in the area.

The Cuerdale Heritage Trail is a 3.4 mile circular walk that takes in a series of local landmarks - all with their own unique stories to tell. Download a free  digital guidebook (PDF) [13MB]  and discover the Cuerdale's hidden histories!
