Help to strengthen the community of Earlestown and Newton-le-Willows

Crownway Community Centre in Earlestown invites you, your family and friends to share your views!

Did you know there was a community centre in Earlestown? Have you been? What was it like? What would you like to see there?

Crownway Community Centre’s recent success in securing funding from the Big Lottery Reaching Communities programme means there is huge potential to develop further over the next five years. We have commissioned an independent reviewer to assess the importance that the Centre has within the community. Part of this includes a short 5-10 minute survey in order to gauge your views.
