The Ripple Effect

Our canalside Community

The ‘Ripple Effect’ is a project developed by the local community in Nelson (Pendle) supported by Super Slow Way and local partners, funded by the National Lottery Communities fund for the next two years.   

Situated in a ‘secret garden’ behind the Morrisons supermarket in Nelson we are creating a community hub which we plan to develop over the next two years into a place for the community to come together; with  a particular focus on engaging local young people in activities.

From the hub we will run a range of activities including canoeing and water sports, led walks, growing and planting and creative workshops. If you’d like to know more or to get involved email project co-ordinator Paddy Spain on 

The Ripple Effect forms part of a range of projects taking place in Pendle over the next few years as part of This is Nelson, the cultural strand of the Nelson Town Deal funding.
