First Saturday Litter Pick
Nov 6 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am


A group of residents get together on the first Saturday of every month to pick up litter and tidy the village.  Meet outside the Victoria Institute at 10.00 a.m., weather permitting and in line with social distance guidance.  Bags and litter pickers provided, and it is a good idea to bring your own gloves.

You decide how much time and where abouts in the village needs some attention. Half an hour or an hour can – and does – make such a difference. If you have seen an area which would benefit from a tidy up, please contact Peter Collins at the Victoria Institute (771733) and he will let the litter pickers know.

Announcing a new venture for the Methodist Churches in the Lune Valley

From September 2021 Methodists in Caton and Brookhouse have come together with those in Arkholme and Roeburndale as the Lune Valley Cluster.

As well as holding Sunday Services and other activities in their own chapels, they will be having joint sessions such as mid-week Bible study and fellowship, which is both in-person and by Zoom, so that anyone who cannot travel to the in-person site can attend remotely.

Occasionally Sunday worship will be a joint Cluster Group Service. The next one will be on 7th November at Brookhouse Methodist Church at 10.45a.m., led by the Lune Valley’s Minister, Rev Emma Holroyd. Everyone is welcome.
