Friday & Saturday 13th/14th December
The Village of Flower & Music
Freckleton is located in the Fylde, Lancashire,
England, UK, just north of the river Ribble. It is one of the oldest
Fylde villages. Historically, Freckleton’s main industry is
agriculture but there was a time when it was a sea port with boat
building and sail making.
The Freckleton web site is a showcase for the
village. It provides information about local history, the shops,
pubs, restaurants, council, businesses, facilities, services and
amenities that are available locally.
There are also pictures from around the village
as well as information about the Lancashire Coastal Way and links
to everything we can find of relevance to Freckletonians.
Please use the menu at
the top of the page to navigate the site.
Rawstorne Sports Centre - November 2013
The Rawstorne Sports Centre now has a successful Cricket Club, Adult and Youth Football teams, as well as an established and popular Youth Club.
Attempts are being made by the Frecklestorne Project and the Rawstorne Sports Centre management Committee to improve the facilities at the Bush Lane playing fields by building a sports hall, but without the support of new sections and members this is a difficult or impossible task.
Despite the resurfacing of the All Weather Surface three years ago, it is very much underused and it is becoming a use it or lose it situation!
Are you one of the 72.4% of residents who 'overwhelmingly supported' the need for a multipurpose centre when questioned for the Parish Plan? Now is the time to get involved, they really do need your support. If anyone is interested in forming a new section to play tennis, netball, 5-aside football or indeed any other sport, please contact a member of the management committee, their names are on the notice board outside the Rawstorne Centre.
