Waterfoot Centre Project

The new community space in Waterfoot is almost finished now that the planting has been completed.

Following on from a site visit and art workshops to design unique cast stone flags, pupils from the Green Team at Waterfoot Primary School have been instrumental in getting the project finished by helping to plant the raised beds at the front of the site.

Working alongside members of Stacksteads Countryside Park Group and Proffitts – Investing in Communities the pupils planted a variety of sensory plants in the large planters, including grasses, scented plants and a range of flowering plants to give year round colour.

Good News For The Glade

Anyone who came to the Lantern Parade will know that this piece of land in the Riverside Park is really in need of drainage

Great news ! With the award of a grant from Rossendale Council’s Living Well Living Better Project we finally have enough money to do the work !

When it’s complete we’ll be setting up a little gardening group to keep it looking smart. If anyone’s interested in joining that please contact any member of the group

Farhome Lane Tidy Up

Very productive couple of hours with the Beavers who were working toward their Community Badge. All this came from round Farholme Lane and Branch St – the difference is amazing but it really shouldn’t be necessary to do this. And all the children agreed !
