Working with design company Osprey, Haslingden Task Force has developed a branding and website for the town with the strapline ‘Small Town Big Heart’ aimed at encouraging visitors to the town. The website www.visithaslingden.com and promotional materials including a flyer and town trail, will be launched on Tuesday 14th March at 4pm at Haslingden Library.
The launch would be attended by the Mayor of Rossendale, Cllr Granville Morris, and Council Leader Cllr Alyson Barnes, alongside members of Haslingden Task Force.
Following the launch, from 4pm – 5pm there will be refreshments in the library and the opportunity to see the new website and pick up a copy of the new flyer and town trail. The town trail has been put together with the help of Haslingden Roots Facebook group and highlights the history and heritage of the town.
Cllr Alyson Barnes, Chair of the Task Force said;
“Haslingden has a lot to offer local residents and visitors to the town and the new website and promotional materials highlight the town and provide lots of information about what to see and do. The website is for everyone in Haslingden and we hope people will provide information and help to keep it vibrant and up to date.”
Leesa Amin from community group Love Haslingden and Rossendale Women of the Year said;
”Love Haslingden has worked with the Task Force on the new branding and website and I think it is a very exciting new development for Haslingden.”
Haslingden Task Force was set up in 2014 to bring together people who are involved in services or activities in Haslingden to identify key regeneration issues affecting the town and potential projects or activities which could be delivered to help boost the economy. Rossendale Borough Council has provided £100,000 of funding through the Task Force to provide a catalyst to develop regeneration initiatives in Haslingden and the Task Force is working on several projects to support the continued development of the town.
