Pancreatic Cancer Research Fundraising Coffee Morning.

Norma and Paul Singleton would like to thank all those who attended and helped to make this such an enjoyable and worthwhile day. Extremely generous giving has enabled us to make a donation of approximately £1100 to the above charity, in memory of our late daughter.
Many thanks to everyone.  Norma and Paul Singleton.

The Women's Institute - October meeting.

President Kirsten Cannon welcomed 31 members and 3 visitors to the meeting.

A thank you letter from Pam Mansfield had been received informing members of the recent coffee day held at Natland Tea Rooms which had raised in excess of £1500 for the defibrillator fund.  President Kirsten expressed her thanks to members and friends for raising £100 from the September open meeting also in support of the defibrillator fund.

Entry forms for the Craft Exhibition to be held on 4 November are available from Elspeth Jayne and donations of cakes/bakes would be welcome.

President Kirsten then welcomed Pam Hetherington a podiatrist from The Foot Clinic, Kendal.  Pam gave an interesting talk on her role in diagnosing and treating conditions of the lower limbs and feet and stressed the importance of foot care.  Following her talk, she welcomed questions from members on various foot conditions. 

Kate Toms gave the vote of thanks.

The competition for a silly pair of socks was won by Jenny Butler with Janet Greenhalgh in second place.

The raffle was won by Pauline McDonald.

Date of next meeting is November 15th at 7.15pm in Natland Village Hall which will be the AGM.

Casual Vacancy on Natland Parish Council

A vacancy has arisen on Natland Parish Council due to the resignation of Councillor Joan Lind.  The period of public advertisement (during which electors could claim a poll) has now expired, therefore the Council is free to fill this casual vacancy by co-option.
The co-option would be until May 2018, when the next full election of the Council will be held.
Anyone who is interested in taking on this valuable public service should contact the Clerk or the Chair or any Councillor – contact details are on the notice board or by clicking on this link.  Or just come and observe the Council’s next meeting on 30 October 2017.
There’s plenty of information about what parish councils do on the websites of the National Association of Local Councils and the Cumbria Association of Local Councils – just google NALC or CALC Cumbria and explore.
