The Weather in January

It was not a good month to be in lockdown : it was very cold and wet. We had a sprinkling of snow on a few days, but not enough to build a snowman! There was a bitterly cold wind towards the end of the month. John Dobson.

 As from Monday 25 January the Kendal town bus services are operating with reduced frequency. In particular the no. 41/41A will be an hourly 41 service,  departing from Kendal at 15 minutes past the hour. All journeys run via Kendal Parks, then Oxenholme and the hospital. Timing at Oxenholme is half past the hour, so a minute or two later at the top of Oxenholme Lane - from bus stop on NEAR side of the A65. Timetable HERE.

Timetables for service 567 and Sunday service 40 remain unchanged.

We are a Good Community for Looking After Each Other - it's official

South Lakeland might have the oldest and frailest population in Cumbria but we have looked after each other during the COVID pandemic. Requests from South Lakeland residents for statutory support have been the lowest of any of the districts. Data from the Cumbria Multi Agency Intelligence Cell (MAIC) suggests that the community infrastructure in South Lakeland may have had a considerable impact in mitigating demand for statutory support.
