This project was funded on 23 Sep 2021!

“The Plough Pub” Now "Bonnie Bear Day Care" (named after the owners Baby Girl Bonnie, who they sadly lost in 2020) The building is a local landmark that was approved to be demolished, yet we as locals ourselves, saved the building and created a beautiful nursery for the local community including a sensory room which we look to make available for the whole community to access as currently there are not many local sensory rooms for children with & without additional needs. In Addition to this, the local community showed keen interest us cleaning and repairing the external clock tower to the building and have this beautiful feature ticking again, but as its specialist work, it fell outside our budget at over 12k alone and the community would love to see this project come to life. "The Echo" and "In your area" also showed interest in our story:

What we'll deliver:

  • Invest In Our Children & Community
  • Re-establish a 1984 Clock Tower and Restore it to working order
  • Restore the buildings true beauty for future generations
  • A new focal point in the community

Why it's a great idea:

*Beautiful working clocktower feature on Rice Lane *A working focal point of Rice Lane *A beautiful restored local landmark / clock tower on Rice Lane *Creating Jobs for local practitioners *Local business's would benefit and love to see the area improve i.e Sainsburys / Aldi and all Rice Lane shops as we are situated in a prime location that stands out on Rice Lane next to Sainsburys Superstore. *Environmental Improvements.

Steps to get it done:

  • Provide funds to specialist contractor to repair clock tower
  • Unveil the clock once repaired this would be perfect for New Years Eve
  • Contact the press to let them know our achievement / outcome as The Echo ran our story.

We have had full support from the beginning of our the initial nursery set up from local Councillors including ( Ann O'Byrne, Cheryl Didsbury, Richard McLinden)
