The Local Community

   The Grapes

We have established strong ties with local organisations, such as the flower club, the village school, and various churches. These close-knit community organisations often offer us fun opportunities to join in with their meetings, or help out with a range of events. There is a bowling green at the local pub, an active tennis club, and a large village green where football matches are played.

There are a small number of shops within the village, including a Post Office, Hairdressers and Chemist. Goosnargh holds an annual show of crafts, flowers and produce in the Village Hall where people living at Bushell House have exhibited for several years now.

In June, Goosnargh and Whittingham hold the festival, a local event which is always enjoyed by everyone at Bushell House.

We celebrate our Founders Day in June, joining the congregation at the adjacent church and then returning to Bushell House for a sherry reception and buffet lunch to which everyone is invited.
