The Bacup Now Community Group - Working for Bacup's future

Bacup Now is a new constituted community group that has been set up by committed community members with the prime objective of informing and engaging with the Bacup Community with a view to relaunching Bacup as a vibrant, dynamic & attractive town in which to live, work and play. This will be done through regular events and activities, initiated and driven by the community and will encourage more interaction between businesses, community groups and the community itself. The group is confident that their approach is a model that has great potential throughout Rossendale.

Serious cuts in funding to local councils has meant that there is limited funding available for community activities even though they are acknowledged as vital to the community’s future. Consequently, Bacup Now have launched an appeal directly to the Rossendale community to support events and activities in Bacup. The Group are focusing on the Bacup Christmas Festival as their first challenge and are appealing to the Rossendale community to support this objective through donations to the group which will be used to support the efforts of community organisers in developing high quality, professional events that will benefit the whole community.

Bacup Now pride itself on keeping the community informed and engaged with their activities, and regularly post to their Facebook page. You can keep updated with the group’s progress and the Bacup Christmas Festival through this page. The group are planning further events in 2019 including a music festival, farmers market and food festival.
