Friends of Rossendale Museum


The Friends of Rossendale Museum (FoRM) registered charity 700813, support The Whitaker with a variety of activities including funds for conservation work, education, new equipment and refurbishment. Over £50,000 has been raised in recent years. We also promote a lively programme of monthly talks on a variety of interesting topics of local and general interest and organise a summer guided walk and annual dinner. 

We're looking for more people to join of all ages, young and old, to support an active interest for the whole community in historic Rossendale and keep culture alive in the area.
