The tender for cleaning the public toilets has been given to Mr Paul Williams; Mr Neil Pharoah (Envirocare) has the contracts for grass cutting and grounds maintenance of the playing field and Mr Stefan Laws has the tender for Parish Contractor. We look forward to working with Paul, Neil and Stefan over the next 12 months.

Annual Assembly
At the Assembly in March we had reports from PC Tony Marsh, Ms Diane Baxter (Lancaster District Manager for Libraries), Mr Alan Ferguson (National Trust), City Councillor Kath Graham and Councillor Ribbons (Playground Management Committee). The Chairman gave the annual report of the Council’s work and Mr Tony Parker (Secretary for the Furness Line Action Group) gave a talk on rail travel to and from Silverdale station –accounts of all the reports can be found in the minutes of the meeting on the website.

Annual Meeting
At our annual meeting this month Councillor Terry Bond was re-elected as Chairman and Councillor Tony Houghton as Vice-Chairman.

Skate Park
We are still looking into a site for the proposed skate park and would welcome suggestions.

South Lakeland District Council has suggested that a Local Plan covering the whole of the AONB area be prepared – this idea (which we support) has yet to be presented to Lancaster City Council.
