We won GOLD in 2022. Now we’re planning ahead for a successful 2023…

“We are so proud that ‘Rawtenstall in Bloom’ has been chosen to represent the region in the North West Large Town category of the National RHS Britain in Bloom 2023 Competition.

It is wonderful that all the hard-work by so many volunteers around the town is being recognised, and that we will have the opportunity to showcase our many different gardens, extensive heritage, amazing community spirit and vibrant high street to a wider audience.

Whatever the outcome, the winner is the town of Rawtenstall and all that live, work and visit here.”

– Sue Shuttleworth Chair of Civic Pride Rossendale


Everyone is so excited with the news, but we will need lots of help from volunteers and financial support via donations and fundraising in order for us to make a great impression.

No experience is needed if you want to help out, lots of support is given and there are lots of different types of jobs to do… No minimum commitment or rotas, just turn up as and when you can! To find out more please email us at [email protected]
