Queen Emily's RAFT challenge PDF Print E-mail


Edenfield Rose Queen Emily and her retinue have chosen the charity RAFT – Rossendale food bank as their charity for the year. They have chosen RAFT as they are local they support adults, children and families within the Rossendale. When people are referred to RAFT not only do they get food parcels for the week but guidance and support, and hope that things can and will improve for them with support, love and faith of their local community.

Emily was crowned in June at Edenfield Parish with the church family from all over the team and local community. There was support from RETM puppets and Edenfield Church Choir. Followed by a bustling fair in school raising money and collecting goods for RAFT and the church. Emily and her friends gave an informative presentation on the important role of food banks and her reasons for choosing it as her charity.

So far in the last 2 months Emily and retinue have managed to make 6 shopping trolley full of donations to RAFT from her boxes in Edenfield.

During the summer holidays the older retinue took the RAFT challenge – in which they had to feed and support a family of four for a day with £5 – they went to Tesco’s and thought of all the needs of the family and used their £5 to collect things together they could pass on to RAFT to help families in Rossendale they then gave a morning of their time to learn more about RAFT and help pack parcels for the families.


Emily will continue to collect RAFT though out her year as Rose Queen at all her events and has also placed collection boxes in Edenfield Parish Church, Edenfield C of E Primary School and Edenfield Post Office and Edenfield News agents.

Dearden Clough Development Quashed by Planning Inspectorate PDF Print E-mail

Proposed development at Dearden Clough


After many months of opposition to the proposed development on Dearden Clough we are pleased to advise that the Planning Inspectorate has upheld the decision of the Rossendale Borough Council Planning Department not to approve the plans submitted by the developers.

The principal reasons given by the Planning Inspectorate were:-

- the risk to land stability (particularly in relation to Dearden Fold properties) and without any measures proposed to ensure this did not happen,

- adverse impact on availability of on street parking on Bury Road and surrounding area

- risk to safety in respect of site access provisions

- flood risk to properties proposed to be built on Dearden Clough

We understand that the dev elopers can still make challenge the Inspectorate decision if they consider that proper procedures were not followed or there has been an error in law. The challenge must be made within 6 weeks of the decision date. In the vent that any challenge is accepted the planning application rejection does not get overturned but the application reverts to the Planning Inspectorate to be considered again.

The recent decision is one which has brought great relief to the residents of Dearden Fold and Bury Road and thanks are extended to Jake Berry MP, Councillors Anne Cheetham and Darryl Smith, Edenfield Village Residents Association and all others who have supported us both in writing and on the ground in this campaign.
