Focus on our members: Val Chapman

Last Thursday, Jennie Bailey was honoured to represent Val Chapman at the annual Rochdale Borough Sports & Culture Awards 2016/2017.

At a glitzy event compèred by the incomparable Sue Devaney providing jokes and flourish to the evening, there were performances and stirring speeches about the strength across the borough in its cultural and sporting achievements.

With such a strong field of people who have contributed to Rochdale’s cultural ecology, sadly, our Val didn’t come away with the prize. However, it is wonderful that she has had the recognition with her nomination and she is certainly our Cultural Champion!
