Thankyou to our dedicated Volunteers

7 Jun 2022

The Pendle Hill Landscape Partnership has had the pleasure of working alongside more than 300 volunteers over the four years we have been in operation. Having volunteered over 10,000 hours of work, we think it is more than appropriate to show our appreciation for all their hard work, and we feel the release of our new volunteer film on YouTube provides a good opportunity.

Over the past four years, our volunteers have enabled us to do what otherwise would have been impossible. From tree planting and pathway management to environmental education, historical research, archaeology, and designing art projects - our volunteers have done it all.

Careers Week 2022: The Launch of Two new Films for 'Working out of the Ordinary'

7 Mar 2022

To coincide with National Careers Week (7th to 12th March) we have launched two brand new films, to add to our existing six 'Working out of the Ordinary' films.

Working out of the Ordinary is about promoting the types of job that you'd otherwise never know about, or your careers adviser may not be aware of. All of the jobs featured in the films are being carried out by people here today in Lancashire, and the majority of them are outdoors, creative or community-based.

'Working out of the Ordinary' films launched to promote career opportunities

2 Nov 2021

Take a look at our fabulous new films, Working out of the Ordinary, produced by Nick Farrimond as part of our Trainees project. The six short films aim to show young people in the Pendle Hill area a range of lesser known exciting careers, and the idea that 'working out of the ordinary' is possible without leaving the locality. All of the films relate to the Pendle Hill landscape and partnership – ranging through community development, cycling, outdoor adventure and creative arts. Season two will air in 2022.

Success for New to Walking Festival

12 Oct 2021

The Pendle Hill Landscape Partnership New to Walking Festival - Together for Our Landmark – took place between Saturday 18th to Sunday 26th September.

The 'New to Walking' Festival was a one-off festival organised last month over 9 days and included 16 free events.  The festival provided a fantastic opportunity for people to join knowledgeable guides and to learn more about the area's fascinating natural and cultural heritage as well as building confidence to venture out on self-guided walks in the future.

Another Summer granted for The Pendle Hill Landscape Partnership

17 Aug 2021

We are delighted to announce that we have been granted an extension period for the programme to continue to run until 31st October 2022. The original plan was to complete our objectives by March next year, but the impact of the coronavirus has created the need for activity to take place during an additional summer. With thanks to the National Lottery Heritage Fund, this has been made possible and we are now able to make up for lost time.
