We love our creatives
Like most towns we have wonderfully creative people. We have the amazing Northern School of Art, independent creative businesses and many local groups. Although things are tough at the moment, we want to shine a light on the importance of creativity and culture to our town’s prosperity and to our physical and mental well-being.

The craft behind the creative

Here you will find spotlights
on our creative businesses,
campaigns and events which are
taking place, our crafting
community, our musical groups, our dance groups, our writers
and hopeful our allotment society! If we have missed anyone out please get in touch.


Led by far sighted public servants a group of leaders and business people gathered together to focus on being positive about the town and its many positive attributes.
