In the picture above, Rastrick celebrate being chosen as a Big Local area.

Rastrick is a small community linked to the larger town of Brighouse in the lower Calder Valley. Although geographically close to Brighouse, it has a strong identity of its own as a distinct community.

Local Trust and partners are pleased to be engaging and supporting the residents and those who work in this Big Local area to get started on their Big Local journey. Contact us below if you are from this area and would like to get involved.
