In June Petrus closed its project at River Street and relocated to 90 Beswicke Royds Street. The official opening ceremony of the new project took place on 4th November 2011. Bernard Gallagher, C.E.O of the Regenda Group, the developers of the property, officiated and during his speech reflected on the long standing relationship Regenda has had with Petrus. The event was filmed by Petrus and a D.V.D will be produced to mark the event. The day was attended by the M.Ps for Rochdale and for Heywood and Middleton, Simon Danczuk and Jim Dobbin, as well as a number of local councillors, service users and Petrus staff. An excellent buffet was prepared by Petrus staff which was enjoyed by all and a demonstration of making hanging baskets was given by the caretaker, Rikki Holroyd, in which a number of the guests participated.
