We are a family of three and a cat, looking for a 2-3 bedroomed cottage
in the area, ideally with a wood burner and a garden. Excellent references. Please contact Jodi on firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help.
A detailed application has now been submitted for 21 new houses to be built off Sycamore Road. You can see all the paperwork on the Lancaster City Council website. The reference number is 16/01603/FUL.
Key documents have been printed out and made available in a folder at the Victoria Institute. All residents are entitled to comment, and can do so through the Lancaster City Council website. If you need help to use the website, do ask at the Victoria Institute.
Thank you to everyone who responded to our surveys. However we are very disappointed with the low number of completed surveys. We have therefore decided to extend the deadline for completion to the 8th January 2017. Please complete a form either on line or in paper form.
We really do need your views in order to allow us to produce a Neighbourhood Plan which will truly reflect the wishes and feelings of the villagers of Caton with Littledale.
We have a team of 7 Community Emergency Coordinators covering Caton, Brookhouse and the section of Quernmore from Crook o’Lune to the Lune Aqueduct.
- Please tell us if you could volunteer to monitor (safely!) a beck near your house if there is exceptional flooding; we can then pass the information back to the Emergency Centre in Lancaster.
- We also invite you to tell us if you or someone you care for would need help in a crisis such as Storm Desmond and any long power cuts.
Our Community Emergency Contacts are:-
Helen is looking for somewhere to rent in the village, preferably self contained so she can have a
dog. She is a non-smoker and has a car. Her mobile no is 07981635394.
Our Neighbourhood Plan should help shape the development of the whole parish of Caton-with-Littledale through to 2031. We now have a survey for everyone who lives here to complete. Actually two surveys - a short one for children and young people, and a full one for all residents.

The plans for new homes on Bargh's site are now available on the Lancaster City Council website. The reference is 16/01310/REM and it is called the TNT Garage. Comments should be made by 25th November. The application will be considered by Lancaster City Council's Planniong Committee on 6th February 2017, at 10.30am.
We're working on a Neighbourhood Plan which will help shape the future development of our village - where new homes go, what they look like, facilities for sport and outdoor activities, buildings for business, green spaces, landscapes and countryside...
The Emergency Plan has been adopted by our Parish Council. There is a copy on the village website - look under Parish Council>Downloads. You can consult a printed copy at the Victoria Institute, where you can purchase a print-out of the plan too. Our Emergency Plan includes the part of Quernmore alongside the River Lune and the A683, so it covers the area from Crook o'Lune through Junction 34 to the Lune Aqueduct. The Victoria Institute is our emergency centre; if access is needed telephone numbers for key-holders are displayed at the Institute.
POOR’S LAND CHARITY - More than 200 years ago an area of land by the River Lune was given to the Parish, to help local people in need. Now the proceeds from letting out grazing rights and fishing rights are used to give small grants each Christmas. There is a simple application form which you can obtain in the Post Office/Londis store on Sycamore Road from 1st November. The forms need to be returned by 30th November.
What is your favourite view of the village? Tell the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group about it - a brief description or a poem perhaps - or even better send them a photo. Your view must be from a public place such as a road or footpath and could be a view of the village from the distance, or a favourite view in the village. Or a distant view you treasure from within our village. A record of what we enjoy about living here.
The Twinning Group is raising money to help pay for the next visit by our friends from Socx, in 2017. Our next event is a Big Breakfast!
Our MP Cat Smith came to the Victoria Institute on 11th August and met about 15 local people.
The Link is inviting younger people in the village to enter a competition to win £100 for their organisation. Write a praragraph telling local people what it means to you to be a member of your youth organisation. The winning entry will be published in The Link. Closing date 30th September. Please send your entry to the editor of The Link on email@example.com.
As you are reading this the children, staff and families will have been enjoying a well earned holiday, as well as remembering and celebrating Easter. This was marked in school by a lovely assembly by Alan Wadsworth and the class 1 children making their specially embroidered Easter cards. Their sewing skills were very impressive!
Our friends in Socx are looking forward to our next visit and have been making plans for our entertainment. They are hoping that their visit last year and the video quizzes which we have run during the year both for adults and in the schools will have encouraged more of you to consider visiting them. You can be sure of a warm welcome. The area is very close to action of the First World War and as we are remembering the centenary of the start of the war, a visit to one of the cemeteries or other places of interest might be on the cards.
The Caton youth Club trustees will again have money available in July to help young people whether individuals or groups with the leisure time activities.
