29.03.20 Your Town NN10 5K RUN

By 6th February 2020 February 11th, 2020 Events, Featured Events, News

We are back!

Join the NN10 Community as we meet up and enjoy a local 5k run.

We would love you to run with us on Sunday 29th March at 9am.

Our annual NN10 Rushden to Higham Ferrers 5k starts and finishes at Rushden Station and Transport Museum and aims to create a strong sense of community by attracting a cross section of local people joining in and running together socially.

Rushden and Higham Ferrers Town Councils have partnered with Rushden Lakes, Freedom Leisure, local running group, Running Buddies, East Northants Council and UK Emergency Support Services to bring this 5k run together.

Local people are invited to join others to raise funds/awareness for two important local causes, Rushden Railway Heritage & Community Space and Higham Ferrers Community Fund.

If you would like further information please call Freedom Leisure at the Pemberton Centre on

01933 350 324 or email Pemberton@freedom-leisure.co.uk



Rushden Railway Heritage and Community Space

Rushden Historical Transport Society

In June 2017 Rushden Historical Transport Society acquired the rundown Rushden Goods Shed.

The transport society have begun a journey to restore and renovate the building and are slowly but surely transforming it into a Heritage Community Hub for use by the people of Rushden and the surrounding area.  Monies raised through this community event will help to fund continuous improvement to the building.  The Goods Shed is already proving a popular venue and was used for several community events last year including craft fairs, model railway shows and a Steampunk festival.


Higham Ferrers Community Fund

The Higham Ferrers Community Fund is managed by Higham Ferrers Town Council for the benefit of the town and its local community. 

The fund is utilised to support local events such as Christmas Sparkle and aims to assist community building projects throughout Higham Ferrers.

Thank you for your support for this valuable local cause!
