The Second Act of Remembrance of the sons of Heath Charnock Parish who lost their lives due to World Wars 1 and 2


On Sunday 10 November 2019 Heath Charnock Parish Council, two local military historians, family, and Parishioners gathered to remember and to name the men from Heath Charnock Parish who died due to World Wars 1 and 2.  


Thanks to the research carried out by John Garwood for World War 1 and Stuart Clewlow for World War 2, Heath Charnock Parish Council has been able to list the names of the fallen on the plaque on the Parish Gateway Stone.  

 The Photo shows John and Stuart with Parish Councillors and the Clerk, Sunday 10 November 2019. …Click to see more

Parishioner of the Year

Until the coronavirus situation is under control, Parish Council meetings will be conducted by email and telephone . Please contact the Clerk if you wish to bring any issue to the attention of the Parish Council.

In response to the Covid-19 emergency, Chorley Buddies has been set up  as a phone service covering the whole of the Chorley area. At its simplest, the service will provide an opportunity for anyone who is lonely, isolated and concerned to have a chat with a friendly voice. The Service will make that a regular chat if desired by the caller.

Chorley Buddies will NOT be offering medical, financial or relationship advice. but would be able to signpost to what help is available. In some cases, Chorley Buddies may be able to help them access that assistance.  We can arrange for PhoneBuddies and ShoppingBuddies.

All Chorley Buddies volunteers have been DBS-checked. Chorley Council is endorsing this initiative.
