Emergency Services

The advantage of living in a metropolis like Kirkby Lonsdale is self evident . In the rural community, we do not get the same level of emergency services. We have to go to the Post Office in the Village Hall, on a Thursday, for our Emergency Contraception.

I am intrigued by the remark “Lets understand the next steps”

Any suggestions as to what the next step recommendation would be, would be welcome.

Parish Council Information

The Parish Council Page on this Blog (See the PARISH COUNCIL Tab immediately above this article) has been updated.

It is now easier to access the PC Agendas, Minutes and Financial information than is used to be.

In addition, Consumer Alerts and other information circulated by Lancashire County Council can be found on the same Webpage.

Spring in their Steps

The Whittington in Bloom Team were out on Sunday preparing to reveal a brighter Village when winter is over and Spring begins.

This Sunday they were at Crosslands, bounding up onto the banking and ballancing in a precipitous manner whilst plunging their spades into the fertile earth.

The thanks of the village must go out to those hardy soulswho have risked backache in this noble cause. Very many thanks.

Thanks to Simon & Caroline for the photo’s

Crash Corner at a new Low

Mike Barr has kindly provided me with recent photo’s taken at Low Hall Corner.

The first records yesterdays event, with a newly arrived police car waiting to investigate the accident. I’m afraid that I know no more than that, at this point in time. However, it appears to be an excess speed event on the blind bend, once again.









The next photo is of the accident that occurred a week or so ago when the Police pursued a white Transit van that had been committing crimes in Bolton-le-Sands, and which finished by diving over the drystone wall on the bend, and burying itself in the field (10ft lower) at Low Hall Farm.
