Where it all began…
Preston Council’s Unity FM Neighbourhood Management Office on New Hall Lane closed its doors in April 2010 due to a lack of funding following Central Government spending cuts. This left Fishwick and St Matthew’s residents, businesses and other organisations and partners without an important link and means of communicating local issues and developments.
To fill the gap left local people and groups have came together and formed Friends of Fishwick and St Matthew’s (FOFS) to highlight the areas problems and its assets and to try and improve the neighbourhood’s image and its local facilities.
We are always looking for more people to join us and help us move forward with all the work we as volunteers from across the community have undertaken in the years since.
