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.
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.
