There isn't currently an active Accrington PROSPECTS Panel, but this doesn't mean we leave Accrington out! PROSPECTS has been involved with helping residents of Accrington carry out events and projects since we were set up in 1998 and continues to do so.
If you are interested in helping to set up an Accrington PROSPECTS Panel or if you would like to get involved with projects and events in Accrington, please let us know and we will add you to our mailing list.
Previous Accrington Projects
Hyndburn Resource Centre - A grant from Awards for All helped to provide an 'on site' facility for disabled day care clients to take part in food growing. Food growing training was carried out by a local trainer and a large group of clients took part.
Woodnook Vale -The Baxenden Forum and Woodnook Residents Association installed an access path from the residential area to the greenway. To enhance the trail they organised two willow weaving training sessions along the Vale, resulting in a lovely living screen and a seating arbour being added beside the pathway and The Foundation also worked with the Probation Service on further footpath improvement. A few years later in 2011 lots more willow workings were added to the trail along with several more benches for the weary traveller to rest on. Willow workshops were held involving a ladies walking group, St Paul's Scouts, St John's Primary School and Hollins Technology College. The children all made small willow items and lanterns for the celebration parade. Hollins were especially involved making larger sculptures for the trail with the help of willow worker Joe Gregory and some living willow structures were installed with help from Baxenden Forum volunteers.
