Re: Mary Hindle Centre

Blimey, that's a blow. The Mary Hindle Resource Centre was a great community centre and I heard lots of good things about.

It's also a knock for Radio Rossendale as they were talking of having the radio station located in there.

Re: Mary Hindle Centre

this is from that link ... they may be thinking of buying it ...

Radio Rossendale, which is currently seeking a home for its new radio station, has been considering the centre as a prime location.
Project manager Tony Nixon said: “The station had been looking for suitable premises for some time now and the Mary Hindle Resource Centre is the ideal venue at which to base the radio station.
“It’s proximity and line of site to the radio transmitter at Top o’ Slate would enable the station to broadcast to every part of the Valley providing the best possible signal to all listeners.”

Re: Mary Hindle Centre

I remember the Mary Hindle Centre Opening with money from "Action for Haslingden" the regeneration project a few years ago

So one question: if the money was funded through that to buy the building and that has now closed Who owns the building and where will the money go from the sale?

Re: Mary Hindle Centre

Wasn't the Tea Rooms next to Nisa a community project that just disappeared having spent huge amounts of money?

Re: Mary Hindle Centre

The tea rooms that are next to nisa is the victorian tea rooms .. which is a private business ..

The ones you are talking about wadey are the ones the nhs community health team set up .. and were shut when the money ran out from the trust. They were next to hassy con club.

Re: Mary Hindle Centre

Here is the story I was asked to write on the centre closing - it is a wholly owned building and Community Action in Rossendale are the owners. If no new trustees come forward then I suppose it may be sold - but what would happen to any money I don't know...


A COMMUNITY centre is set to close its doors after nine years serving people in Haslingden but it is hoped the building could become a media hub.
The Mary Hindle Resource Centre in Bury Road opened in 2000 after community workers spent two years raising the necessary funds and sourcing a location – the former New Thorn Pub.
But a working party of the board of trustees, which runs the centre, met on Tuesday and reluctantly took the decision to close it from 30 September.
All user groups, including a video-training and production unit run by Community Action in Rossendale (CAR) and Lancashire Youth and Community Service which runs a popular youth club, have been sent letters this week informing them of the decision.
Trustee and acting vice-chairman John Ogley said: "The centre is just not financially viable in its present format. Reluctantly we have decided that we can see no way of increasing the use of the centre which will provide an income at sustainable levels to keep the operation viable. There is insufficient income in the current national recession to continue operating in the present manner.
"We are holding an annual general meeting on 17 August at the centre at 7.30pm but we wanted to make people aware of what is being proposed early. People of Haslingden raised the money to open this centre and it is only right that they know what is going to happen.
"Unless we can get more trustees to get involved then the centre in its present format will close. There maybe a future – to use the building as a media hub for creative industries and we hope this option may be pursued by a new group of trustees who have a lively interest in such a proposal."
Already there is keen interest from Radio Rossendale, which is seeking a home for the radio station. Project manager Tony Nixon said: "The station had been looking for suitable premises for some time now and the Mary Hindle Resource Centre is the ideal venue at which to base the radio station.
"It’s proximity and line of site to the radio transmitter at Top o’ Slate would enable the station to broadcast to every part of the Valley providing the best possible signal to all listeners."
Another key player in the potential rebirth of the centre could be Paul Vernon Lydiate, who runs the CAR video unit at the centre.
He said: "The unit has been looking into the possibility of producing video for local businesses on a commercial basis and this is something that we are very keen to pursue. Ten years ago businesses that had a website were a novelty, five years ago it became impossible to envisage an organisation without one. Now it is those websites using video that leap out to grab future customers.
"The CAR video unit is ideally placed to provide high quality low cost video throughout East Lancashire. Maintaining a base would also allow us to continue the valuable video production training we have been offering over the last few years. Thanks to support from Heritage Lottery, Groundwork Pennine Lancashire and the Local Network Fund, we have been able to train to approaching 100 Rossendale people of all ages. We also provide Rossendale’s community groups with videos they could otherwise not afford to produce."
Anyone interested in securing the future of the premises can attend the annual general meeting.
(blob) Haslingden Community Forum secured money from the lottery, North West Development Agency, Rossendale Council and Action for Haslingden (single regeneration budget money) totally nearly £270,000 to develop and equip the premises.
The centre was named after Haslingden woman Mary Hindle who was convicted of taking part in the Loom Riots of 1832 and was deported to Australia despite inconclusive evidence.
For further information contact the Mary Hindle Resource Centre 229330.

Re: Mary Hindle Centre

EMERGENCY talks are set to take place on Thursday over a possible rescue bid for a popular Haslingden community centre.
Community Action Rossendale last week announced it is withdrawing from the Mary Hindle Resource Centre in Bury Road.
Now the prospect of the centre, once the New Thorn pub, becoming a media hub is being explored by backers of the soon-to-be-launched Rossendale Radio Full Story LET
