Autumn 2018Rochdale In Bloom
Rochdale represents the North West in the RHS Britain In Bloom competition.
A heritage notice board at Norden’s Jubilee Park signposts the pride of the village. The park, a small oasis of trees, hedges, and planting such as begonias and hydrangeas, is managed by community volunteers from the Friends of Jubilee Park.
The Growth Project covers over an acre of land and features a wildlife pond, insect hotels, formal flower and wildflower borders and a traditional kitchen garden with unusual varieties of organic vegetable.
Run by Rochdale & District MIND, in partnership with Hourglass, the project aims to promote good mental and physical well-being through outdoor activity in a green environment.
Denehurst Park includes fruit orchards, sunken formal gardens, a herbaceous border, play area, scrumping lane and stumpery. Volunteers from Friends of Denehurst Park and Rochdale Council work to maintain and restore the park.
WW1 Memorial Pop-Up Garden
The WW1 pop-up garden on Gracie Island in Rochdale town centre was created by Rochdale in Bloom volunteers as a fitting tribute to those who fell between 1914 and 1918.
