Exhibition of Photographs
We are helping to put on an exhibition of photographs of the AONB area in the Gaskell Hall over the weekend of 19th / 20th October –“Visions of Silverdale and Arnside AONB”. You are invited to enter yours! There are 5 categories (natural history/ wildlife, landscapes, buildings, people and village events) and there will be a special junior section (for those aged up to 11). To help get an idea of the number of photos to be displayed you are asked to submit a formal entry form – please email Terry Bond if you would like one. If you have any questions or queries contact Terry on 702693 or tgbond@hotmail.com

ICT Support
A group of volunteers are providing workshops and support to ICT users on Wednesday evenings in the Green Room of the Gaskell Hall (the library’s wi fi can be accessed here) over a 3 month pilot. We are paying for the hall hire over the pilot period.

Notice Boards
The AONB kindly donated a new notice board to the village as a part of their 40th Anniversary celebrations – we have put the notice board in the playground where it will be used primarily to display minutes of the Playground Trustees meetings. We are looking to replace the notice board on the butchers’ wall (out of parish council funds).

Hollins Lane and Slackwood Lane
Motorists are currently experiencing problems with visibility when emerging from Hollins Lane onto Slackwood Lane. This is due to the number of posters etc on the railings there and growth of vegetation. We are looking into how these problems can be solved.
