One of the hall's young users, Ollie, who is missing attending events at the Hall whilst we have to remain closed in the COVID-19 crisis, has offered to raise some funds for the Hall by doing a 100 mile sponsored bike ride in June, and he is seeking sponsors on his Go Fund Me page to help him hit his target. Any amount will be welcome, and please will you also share on the appeal with your friends and family for Ollie as well? Many thanks, and a big cheer for Ollie. Go Fund Me
There has been a number of instances of fly tipping in the parish. Just because the tips are closed is absolutely no excuse for fly tipping. If you have rubbish then store it on your own land until you can dispose of it properly. If you see fly tipped material please report it to SLDC via the form on their website here if it's on the Cumbria side of the county border, or to Lancaster City Council via their website form here if on the Lancashire side of the county border.
