Community Groups can Bid for Church and Allotments

Published Tuesday, 04 September 2018

Community interest groups in Read are invited to express an interest in acquiring the village’s United Reformed Church and allotments as community facilities.

The owners of the United Reformed Church have stated their intention to sell it, but as it is included on the Ribble Valley Register of Community Assets community interest groups have the right to bid to acquire it as a community facility.

Read United Reformed Church is situated in East View and was built in the 19th Century. As well as a place of worship, it is used for community activities and as a polling station.

The church allotments are also included on the Ribble Valley Register of Community Assets.

Community interest groups wishing to be considered a potential bidder for the United Reformed Church are asked to state their intention in writing to Diane Rice, Head of Legal and Democratic Services, Ribble Valley Borough Council, Council Offices, Church Walk, Clitheroe, BB7 2RA, by Tuesday, 9 October, 2018.

Community interest groups wishing to be considered a potential bidder for the Read allotments are also asked to state their intention in writing to Diane Rice by Thursday, 11 October, 2018.
