As you can see from the lists below the Parish Centre is a very well used facility embracing all age groups, from babies to the veterans in the snooker team. With the exception of a cleaner it is run by volunteers (some photos above).
These people do not necessarily belong to a group but do a variety of essential jobs which help to keep the parish centre running smoothly, from flower-arranging to putting out chairs and tables, serving Sunday breakfasts and other refreshments throughout the week.... Extra volunteers are welcome and often vital!
For parents to chat and babies to play with the centre toys one afternoon each week
Activities: - Summer outings, coffee afternoons in school holidays. Christmas party.

The Scout Organisation is now an equal opportunities organisation open to all. Our group now has a number of girls in the scout section but is actively recruiting both boys and girls for all sections:
Beavers 5&3/4 to 8; Cubs 8-11; Scouts 11+
All our sections are currently (2011) looking for volunteer leaders - a very rewarding way of spending a couple of hours a week and without whom your children would have no group to attend.
The parish now has a geocache hidden within it. What is it and how do I find it? Please see the poster in the porch or log on to www.geocacheing.com to find out!
The Scouts now have their own lively website which you can link to from here.
Do pay them a visit - you'll enjoy it. Scouts, Cubs and Beavers are all catered for and they welcome news, views and contributions.
It's an independent site - you can use your back arrow to return here.
December 2011 - Thank you to Mark Woodhouse - he has served the 8th Fulwood Scout Group for 25 years and been Group Scout Leader for the past 13 years. He will continue as one of the Scout Troop Leaders, but at New Year will hand over as overall Leader to Ian Mulholland.
God bless them both.
(13 to 18 years old) The group discusses a wide range of topics and acquires listening skills.
Activities include quiz nights, indoor hockey, 10-pin bowling, treasure hunts, organised trips etc.
Among their activities in recent years they have:
- hosted a two-day conference for 55 young people from Manchester, Horwich, Brownedge and Preston, at Our Lady's High School at the end of January 2000 with the support of the Faith and Justice Commission and CAFOD North West. A full day on the Sunday included workshops with a great variety of activities from discussions to art, music, dance and drama.
