Your Community Needs You

Parish Councillor Vacancies.

There are seven seats on Natland Parish Council, but three of them are currently vacant.  The Council can fill these casual vacancies by co-opting new members who could then hold office until May 2022, when the next full election will be held.
The Council serves the community by providing some things directly – such as maintaining the village green, footway lighting, bus shelters, spring litter hunt, annual report and parish meeting – and making representations to other bodies about the services they provide – such as highways (County Council) and planning (District Council).
The notice board and give meeting agenda and minutes showing what we do.  It is a valuable public service but we are few.  Please consider joining us and making a real difference to your community.  Training would be provided.  Contact any Councillor – John Houghton (015395 60727) David and Rhian Peters (015395 60671) Sarah Roberts (015395 61617) - or just come and observe the next Council meeting at 7pm on Monday 25 February in the Village Hall.

A Good Night Out in March

No water?

There’s a leak on Oxenholme Lane. United Utilities know, and someone has come out to see to it.  He says that he can isolate the leak and so the water should be back by midday or at least by the end of the day.
