Dog Waste Bags

Our Chairman kindly made a wooden dispenser for dog waste bags which has been fitted at The Lots – this is a trial scheme to see if the provision of free bags encourages dog owners to clear up after their dogs. We will review the trial at our November meeting.

Public Toilets

You may have noticed that BT have removed the trees which grew alongside the drains behind the Gaskell Hall; this is because the tree roots were causing problems to the drains; Lancaster City Council have laid new drains. The cistern and flush mechanism to the gentlemen’s toilet has been replaced and a new hand-dryer has been fitted.

Faster Broadband

We have been in contact with B4RN (Broadband for the Rural North) and Lancashire County Council/ BT regarding broadband provision in Silverdale and Mr Eddie Sutton, Assistant Chief Executive of Lancashire County Council is to attend our October meeting to discuss this with us. We hope to have a similar discussion with a representative from B4RN and then hold a public meeting – please look out for more information and come along if you can!
