News & Events

There is always lots going on at the project. See something you fancy trying? Come and give it a go.

What has Pendle Leisure Trust been up to – and achieved – in the last 12 months?

How many people do you think visited our facilities between April 2021 and March 2022?

Do you know what we invested in?

Have you seen – or used – the new equipment and unique functional training suite we have had installed?

All the facts, figures and notable achievements have been compiled in our Annual Report.

Following a very challenging year, the Trust’s major accomplishment was to survive and achieve full business recovery following the COVID-19 Pandemic, which it did with support from our key partner Pendle Council.

Pendle’s premier leisure provider not only did this, but achieved so much more as well – including developments and investments across its facilities.

With physical and mental health and well-being at the forefront of everything it does, the Trust continues to deliver lifestyle improvement and wellness opportunities through a range of activities and services at its seven facilities throughout Nelson, Colne and Barnoldswick.

The Trust’s aim is also to be environmentally responsible and it achieved another positive step with a reduction in energy consumption in 2021/2022.

Alison Goode, Chief Executive of Pendle Leisure Trust, said: “Although times have been challenging these last couple of years, we survived and can be proud of what we have achieved.

“Now it’s a case of onwards and upwards to get us back to where we were just before the pandemic – in one of the best positions we had been in for years – and to plough ahead with some very exciting projects we have in the pipeline.”

Read all the facts and figures here.

We’ve created a video of our achievements – please take a look.

Exciting signs of food at the allotment. The tomatoes are growing well and we have aubergine flowers. The bright blue cornflowers look stunning and are filled with bees all the time.

We still have lovely plants for sale. Our plants are grown naturally without pesticides and our new stock is planted in peat free compost. If you would like to fill your garden with plants have a look at our website.

This week we can be inspired by the gardens at the Chelsea Flower Show. Perennials are taking centre stage this year and there are some fantastic plant combinations being used.

We have in stock some wonderful perennial plants and a selection of plants that would look great together are Lysimachia 'Fire Cracker' which has dark purple foliage and a yellow flower later in the summer. Geum 'Lady Strathden' which has bright yellow blooms and flowers now or Geum Cooky with its orange flowers. Plus, add Knautia macedonica, with its deep red pin cushion flowers.

These plants come back each year and are great for attracting pollinators into your garden.

Our plants are grown locally and cared for by our
Wonderful volunteers and beneficiaries 🌼🌸🌱

Spring brings such glorious scents to the garden. I have two favourites, lilacs and dog roses, I have to smell them everytime I see them 😅

Do you have a flower that you enjoy the scent of?

Other things that are looking great at the allotment are all the seedlings, the kohl rabis and the spring bedding plants ⚘🌱🌹
