Dogs not allowed in the Play Park

 A resident has informed the Parish Council that increasingly, there are more people using the play area as a short cut or actually spending time on the park with their dog despite being told that no dogs are allowed and the resident having to leave the play area  as a result. They say that this is becoming a real problem. They would like the signage bigger and for people to be made aware of the problem.

A post has been put on Facebook and  as new signage is in progress, FPC will consider the size.


Foulridge Parish Council are pleased to launch their 2019 Calendar with a second edition of lovely photographs.

Yes, it is hard to think of Christmas and calendars when the sun is shining in the middle of July but last year the 2018 calendar sold out by November and we were lucky enough to be able to order more.

The calendars are on sale now at the usual outlets and many thanks must go to;

Ingham’s Butchers
Foulridge Social Club
The Hare and Hounds
Cafe Cargo

Or, if you contact the number on the poster and leave a message, they can be delivered to your door. The calendars are £6.00 each including a cardboard envelope ready for posting to your family and/or friends.

Free tours are being offered by Pendle Hill Landscape Partnership.

This is an excavation to find out more about Pendle life in the 17th Century.

The site is not open to the public but on Wednesday 18th July 2018, there will be free bus tours starting from Nelson Centre to the site.

The tours must be booked in advance as spaces are limited.

Defibrillator Training and information

As you may all be aware, Foulridge now has a second defibrillator situated at the Hare and Hounds which was donated by the Sutton Trust. (The other defibrillator is outside the Social Club). The Parish Council decided that we should have a second session of training for residents who did not attend the initial training or who would like to  refresh their knowledge.  This will take place during the Coffee morning this Thursday 21st June from 10am – 11am. Not as advertised from 10am – 12noon.

Hope to see you there.


          Village Christmas Tree
After seeing our item on the Spring Newsletter asking villagers for their preference for a real or artificial Christmas tree, a very kind resident has contacted Foulridge Parish Council and offered to pay for a real tree EACH YEAR FOR THE NEXT FIVE YEARS!
That is – the purchase of the tree, the setting up, assembling the lights and dismantling of the tree. Obviously, our overwhelming thanks goes to this very generous benefactor who does not want any fuss or to be named. THANKYOU!
