About Create Longridge

The essence of Create Longridge is to capture Longridge in one day through the eyes of the incredibly talented artists taking part. Each artist will bring their own style and vision, whether that is a painting of the beautiful countryside, the historic architecture or the wonderful people of the town. There are no rules on size or style, the form of the work is for each artist to determine.

As one of the main sponsors of the event Wayne is invited to be a part of the judging – as a result, the winning pieces from 2018 and 2019 are proudly hanging in the reception of our office.

Geoff Rollinson has been our resident artist in both 2018 and 2019.

With our business being based in the heart of Longridge we are honoured to be sponsoring such an amazing event, which fuses together the community, culture and the picturesque town of Longridge all in a single event.

said Wayne Hayhurst, founder and Branch Principal of the business. “I’ve lived in and around Longridge all my life and have always admired the community spirit, so I’m always keen on getting involved in great community causes like this”.




This year our doors are open in support of Longridge Does Christmas and Rock FM’s Mission Christmas – Cash for Kids appeal.

It’s a heart-breaking thought that there are thousands of children who are likely to be waking up to no presents on Christmas Day. For some families Christmas is a luxury they just can’t afford. With your help we can make a difference. From 11th November we’ll be taking donations of new and unwrapped gifts, so please drop in and show your support for such a worthwhile cause. On the night of the 28th we will be selling raffle tickets to win a Christmas hamper with all proceeds being donated to the appeal. There will be plenty of tasty treats and hot drinks.

Help us make this Christmas Day different!


This year Raymond James Ribble Valley want to bring the community together on Saturday 19th September.

As we emerge from COVID-19 Raymond James Ribble Valley want to bring the community together on Saturday 19th September.

The campaign, Keep Longridge Tidy, has a clear aim – to connect people in our community and clear up litter in Longridge.

This initiative encourages individuals, community groups, schools, groups of friends and local authority to work together to keep our village clean because we believe a tidy community, is a happy one.

If you live in the local area and would like take part, please email, call 01772 780300 or drop into the Raymond James Ribble Valley office for more information.

You can also sign up via our Facebook page where you will find a full itinerary here.

We hope you will be able to join us for what will be a great community event!
