After 5 years the Bacup THI is drawing to a close. A weekend of family fun and activity is planned on Saturday 26th and Sunday 26th May 2019 and has been organised in partnership with local voluntary community group Bacup Now and Stubbylee Greenhouses.
The events have been organised in order to showcase the achievements of the project during its life time.
The project saw:
- 15 buildings restored
- 4 buildings were brought back from dereliction
- 2 of the 4 now have new tenants as a result of the work
- Extensive changes to the public realm
- 25 different types of community engagement events
- Over 500 attendees to community engagement events
- Over 1000 followers on social media
- And a dedicated Bacup THI website.
The Bacup THI has also been used as a best practice example and has skill shared with several other THIs, such as Hartlepool, Padiham and Stockport, in the North of England.
