Bacup Now was launched recently as a Facebook page but is quickly growing into a community group that aims to put the heart back into Bacup.

The Facebook page posts all the activities and attractions that are currently available in and encourages interaction with the community and the group has highlighted that if they are to achieve such a massive goal it is going to take the support and engagement of the whole Bacup community.

The following are ways in which the group feel could start the process:

• Bacup needs events staged on Irwell Terrace on a regular basis to bring the community into the town centre and enjoy social interaction. We feel that this needs to be driven by the community, and so involvement in coming up with ideas that would attract the community and be organised by the community with guidance from the group is the way forward
• The idea of ‘Pop Up’ markets on Irwell Terrace has always been popular with the Bacup community and we would like to put forward the idea of a regular Farmers Market as a starting point with other markets such as an artisan to be considered
• The idea of a Music Festival was put forward where we would invite all viable venues such as pubs, bars, cafes and others to have live music performances over a weekend using local artists and perhaps a musical event on Irwell Terrace during the day
• The group also feel that it needs to extend the group to include other community members who are able to voice the opinions of the community as a whole
These are just a few suggestions. Perhaps you have others?

We also agreed that the completion of the THI project is an opportunity to relaunch Bacup and begin to create a town atmosphere that the community will enjoy and be proud to be a part of.

We look forward to receiving your ideas and comments.
