Spotland & Falinge In Bloom – Events
28th May 2018

Thank you to everybody who has been involved to date, we have some of the best green space in Rochdale, from Rooley Moor to Falinge Park, and everywhere in between. Our community spirit is evidenced by just how many people have contributed to make Spotland & Falinge look so fantastic by working together, not just for the In Bloom competition, but for all who live and work here. We have an amazing community.

Our wards contribution to this years Rochdale In Bloom competition is progressing well. The first judging date is the earliest it’s ever been on 3rd and 4th July!  We need your help to pull together our entries and get them into excellent condition for the judges.

The first planned event is this Monday 28 May from 10am, where we will be helping the residents of Alice Ingham Court on Ings Lane boost their IYN entry, please come along with some gloves and a spade.

Throughout the next several weeks we need as many people as possible to come together to maintain the route, report problems, pick-up litter, etc. ideally once a week.  The route brings the judges down Edenfield Road, through Denehurst Park, out onto Sandy Lane to the Wonderwall, before progressing along Sandy Lane and out of our ward onto Roch Valley Way.  This activity will be especially important in the days leading up to judging.  Please get in touch if you are able to participate in any way at all.

If you can help in any way at all, or need more details please contact Phil Massey on: 07917 417500
