Community Column: Civic Pride – There’s Just So Much Going On!

Published November 9, 2016 at 14:56

As the days shorten and the growing season draws to a close, you might be forgiven for thinking that Civic Pride packed everything away and waited for Spring! The reality is rather different.

Having created or regenerated 13 fabulous gardens, as recognised by two recent Britain in Bloom Awards, the fun starts here!  Maintaining them is the next big challenge.  Our willing volunteers are busy planting, dead heading, cutting back and generally getting them ready for winter.  Litter never stops and more will be revealed as the undergrowth dies back.


We’re therefore introducing new ways of working to give our gardeners even more opportunities to work when they want, in the way they want and still make a difference whilst they make new friends!

We’re also looking for local businesses to support us financially and we’re pleased to announce that we now have a main sponsor – Mr Fitzpatrick’s Temperance Bar.

‘Mr Fitzpatrick’s are proud to give something back by supporting Civic Pride volunteers who use their own time and effort so generously to keep our town clean and attractive’ said Ashleigh Morley, owner.  ‘We’re blessed to be in a part of town facing Civic Pride’s main garden which provides a wonderful display throughout the year. Many of our customers comment on how beautiful and inviting it is. ‘

‘We cannot stress how important local sponsorship is for us to achieve our goals and we’re delighted to have Mr FitzPatrick’s, such an icon of Rossendale’s rich history, as our main sponsor’ stated Hazel Cridford, Head of Sponsorship Development. ‘We’re pleased that so many businesses recognise the benefits we bring to the town and expect several more sponsors to follow’


If you would like to be part of our future as a gardener, litter picker or sponsor please contact us now.  As we say in Civic Pride – JDI (Just Do it)!

After all, Civic Pride works – for you, your family, your neighbourhood!
