The wonderful award winning Wonder Wall at the Crown Oil Arena will be getting a spruce up later this month, and we’re on the lookout for volunteers to get involved!
The summer planting session will take place on Saturday 19th June. Come on down from 9.30am - it would be great to see you.
All you need to bring is suitable clothing and footwear, any gardening tools you can spare for the day, and, of course, yourself!
We’d like to thank Crown Oil and Gordon Riggs Garden Centre who are, once again, sponsoring the Wonder Wall and helping to make it possible with a donation towards the cost of the plants, soil and materials needed.
We are pleased to announce that this year’s theme will mark two special anniversaries.
2021 marks 100 years since Rochdale Football Club first appeared in the Football League, while Rochdale Hornets are celebrating their 150th birthday this year. The Wonder Wall’s design will pay tribute to both anniversaries.
The Wonder Wall first came to life in 2017, when Rochdale in Bloom volunteers, club staff and supporters came together to transform the disused area of land at the back of the Crown Oil Arena’s Sandy Lane, which was once overgrown with weeds, into an eye-catching, attractive feature.
The Wonder Wall feature at the Crown Oil Arena is dedicated to the memory of former Director Paul Hazlehurst, who sadly passed away in 2018.
