for the community of today and tomorrow

Welcome to the WGSCA


The Whittingham and Goosnargh Sports and Community Association (Registered Charity Number: 1123865) was formed in 2007 to secure the establishment of receational, educational, sporting and community facilities for the inhabitants of the parishes of Whittingham and Goosnargh.

The redevelopment of the former Whittingham Hospital site with the introduction of a substantial number of new dwellings (currently 650), significantly changes the landscape of community provision within the area. The charity was established to ensure that the community are appropriately provided for and meet the requirements of the planning process which ensured the involvement of local stakeholders. You can find out more about the charity's origins and objectives in the About WGSCA section of the site. More details on the structure of the charity are available in our constitution.
