Thursday Lunch Club Unfortunately the AGEUK Thursday Lunch Club meeting at the WI has now closed. This is due to the ending of financial support from Lancashire County Council.  All those who attended regularly want to publicly thank Ann Pryer for her sterling work with the group since its origin.  The good news is the group has relocated the Farmers Arms Hilldale on alternate Thursdays. The next meeting is on the 5th May; more details from John Stewart 01257 462173

The earliest known reference to Parbold is in the late 12th century, where grants of land were made to nearby Burscough Priory (pronounced Bursk-owe).[7] After the Norman conquest, Parbold was part of the Barony of Manchester. Little development occurred from this time to the mid 18th century. Parbold became a civil parish in 1894.[7]

Odour reporting system for Parbold residents. As some of you may know United Utilities at Hoscar have been working to improve the odour reporting system for Parbold residents.  They now have a direct email link which allows them to see every complaint in real time but it is still in the testing stage and has some limitations.  However they are happy to share it with us and hope, that in future, residents will use it each and every time they experience offensive odours.

Parbold's war memorial is in the local Anglican church, Christ Church, near the top of Parbold Hill. The village's other church – Our Lady and All Saints – was consecrated by Bishop Robert Cornthwaite on 28 May 1884.[9]

Also significant to Parbold's heritage is Wood Lane, just off the main road, and which arguably boasts some of the best views of the surrounding countryside.
