August 8th 2022 The committee is very grateful to Tesco Rawtenstall  and their community champion Mark for supporting the Nat with various refreshment donations.
LECTURES A few months before our closure due to Covid19 in March 2020 the Nat Committee had taken the difficult decision to no longer hold our usual 10 monthly lectures at the Nat as it was felt these were no longer cost- effective. We have however decided that rather than write off never having a lecture again we will hold some lectures on special occasions and to fundraise. On these occasions, we have been invited to use  St John’s or the ABD centre which under the current circumstances with regards to Covid19 etc we would be able to house members and visitors in much more socially distanced surroundings. Please check back here for news of any future lectures that we may hold.
As a direct result of  the cost of living increases we can no longer offer free refreshments and have therefore taken the difficult decision to make a small charge for refreshments. From the 1st November   £1.50 for Coffee £1.00 for Tea will apply.
Thursday 20th October 2022 The Nat Committee were very grateful to the Bacup Rotary Club’s outgoing President Mr Peter Steen for his very kind donation of £250.00.

8th October 2022  The Bacup Nat has been without an acting  President for several months now following the resignation of Mr. K Bowden.  It is with the greatest of pleasure we can now announce that following our monthly committee meeting on Thursday Mrs. Marian Connolly was nominated and seconded for the role of President.  We couldn't think of anyone more deserving of this role than Marian who has devoted almost 48 years of service to the Nat since her first visit in 1974 when she came to enquire about Broadclough Dykes. As many of our members will know the Nat has been in existence since 1878 the first President being Mr. Henry Halstead and although Marian is not the first Nat President she is, in fact, the first female President in the Nat's 144-year history.
