Coach trip
May 20 @ 9:30 am – 10:30 am
We have everything crossed that our trip out to Lytham and Dobbies Garden centre will go ahead on the 20th of May. The cost for the trips will be £10.00 for members and £13.00 for non members. If the government road map from the 17th of May for travel, retail and hospitality has been successfully implemented we will be meeting our friends again and seeing the places we all enjoy. We are not sure about face masks etc but we are used to being prepared by now. I am assured by Bibby’s that every precaution for hygiene on the coach is taken care of. Pickup will be from the Victoria Institute at 9.30am then on to pickup at Brookhouse.  Other pick up points can be arranged by calling our secretary. To book or for updated information call our secretary Benita on 01524 771943
Annual Parish Meeting
May 20 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

ANNUAL PARISH MEETING – Thursday 20th May, 6.30 pm, Station Road and Millennium Way junction

How “green” is your Parish? How can we make it greener?  Your Parish Council already has plans to establish pollinator patches and areas of new tree planting in response to climate change concerns. We are asking residents to let us know what they think of these plans and whether they have other good ideas. We would also like your views on what other “green” initiatives might also be undertaken for the benefit of the Parish. Recycling? Energy? Sustainability?

One chance to have your say is the Annual Parish Meeting which this year will be held outdoors and will walk up to other parts of the parish including Beckside and Fell View and beyond. Councillors will be leading this meeting to talk about projects under way and, just as importantly, to hear your thoughts about what else might be done to tackle environmental issues. If you can’t attend the meeting, or have ideas beforehand, please contact Judy Powell on 01524 771154 or Mike Wright on 07807 816201.

Of course, the Parish Council is accountable for all expenditure and activity undertaken on behalf of residents. A full annual report and accounts will be published on the village website, displayed in notice boards, or available on request from the Clerk.

May 22 @ 9:30 am – 12:00 pm

Saturday Baby Cafe – new group in the Main Hall at The Centre @ Halton from 24 April 2021.

Come along, with another adult if you wish, and meet some new friends with their babies and siblings in a safe and welcoming environment

Sessions are 9.30 – 10.30am and 11am – 12 noon.

Only £3 per adult, children are free

Saturday Baby Cafe is a safe space for families with a child under the age of two on 12th April 2021 to come and meet other families. We understand these children have missed out on baby and toddler groups throughout the pandemic and now that parents may be returning to work during the week, there is a need for provision of a baby group on a Saturday.

Government guidelines allow for 15 adults and their children to attend. More than one adult from your family / household bubbles are welcome to attend but a place for each adult must be booked.

Places must be booked in advance:
