Rossendale Borough Council are working in partnership with Community Interest Company Proffitts – Investing in Communities on an exciting project to improve the Moller Ring Play Area in Crawshawbooth.  

The design for the play area includes traditional timber play equipment, as well as natural play elements like earth mounds, tunnels, bridges and a new trim trail. Entrance improvements, drainage works, safety surfacing, wildflower planting and tree works will  also take place to make the play area a more colourful and welcoming place to visit. 

Local Councillor Alyson Barnes said: “We’re thrilled that we can move forward with the first phase of our plans to improve Moller Ring Play Area. We know that residents have wanted to see the space upgraded for a long time, and I’m certain that the local residents and people from surrounding areas will enjoy meeting, playing, and socialising here when the works have been completed. It’s wonderful to be able to provide community facilities that will encourage children to get out in the fresh air and have fun with their friends.’’ 

Martin Proffitt, Director at Proffitts – Investing in Communities, has been working alongside the council on the improvement plans and has been responsible for fundraising for the project. He said: ‘’We’d like to thank all the local residents for their support during the consultation and planning stages for Moller Ring – lots of people have shared their ideas and feedback, so we’re excited to be able to move the project forward. We’d particularly like to thank the funders from FCC Community Action Fund, Lancashire Environment Fund and Rossendale Borough Council for making this happen.’’ 

The works are expected to start on site in October 2023 and take approximately 8-12 weeks, weather permitting.
