We have pleasure today, in announcing that Civic Pride Rossendale has been awarded the Queens Award for Voluntary Service.
It’s been a long haul since we were first nominated for this award by Alyson Barnes (Leader of the Council) and seconded by Jake Berry MP. Two assessments, two presentations and untold hours of hard graft by our wonderful, willing volunteers later and here we are!
Our citation reads:
Civic Pride Rossendale
Eliminating litter, regenerating community gardens and encouraging others
Details of the Award Ceremony which will be undertaken by the Lord Lieutenant of Lancashire in County Hall at Preston, will be published as soon as we receive them.
There is no higher award for a UK voluntary group and so on behalf of the people of Rossendale, thank you to all our volunteers, past and present, sponsors and supporters for your help in so many ways.
