Church PROSPECTS Panel


The Panel was formed about 1999 and is still going strong with many of it's original Members.  Most are life long residents of Church. 

The Panel is a dedicated bunch of a variety of ages, backgrounds, skills (scrounging, recycling, relocating, skip rooting, make do and mend), abilities.

Over the years the Panel has worked on numerous projects - the first one back in 1999 cleaning up the river on Dineley Street with BTCV.  7 tons of rubbish was pulled out !   Extreme hedge laying was another memorable event - force 10 gales, horizontal rain and a steep embankment that turned into a quagmire - always up for a challenge!  

The Panel were the driving force behind the Donkey Back picnic site on the Leeds & Liverpool Canal and their ongoing project - Gatty Park Community Food Growing.  This in turn has linked in with many other projects, individuals and groups - Neighbourhood Management; Hyndburn Borough Council; Milnshaw Gardens; India Street, which featured at the Urbis Exhibition, Manchester in 2008- to name a few. 

The Panel has received help and support from many others - individuals, companies small and large, friends and family, work colleagues.  Without all of them, we wouldn't be where we are today. 

Over the years, the Panel has amassed thousnads of volunteer hours !
