Rochdale has been shortlisted for a prestigious Great British High Street Rising Star award in 2019.

This recognises the work being done, not just in retail, but also in the communities in Rochdale Town Centre. One of the key areas that was put to the judges was the Toad Lane Allotments scheme being run by the Co-operative Heritage Trust using the planters on Toad Lane. You can read more about this in our case study.

CHT staff presented to the judges as part of the judging process in September and welcomed them to the Rochdale Pioneers Museum along with representatives from Rochdale BID.

The public also have a say in the winner and voting for the award is open now. To have your say and support Rochdale click here.
