We have an electronic organ which is surplus to requirements, it appears to be OK and works although we cannot be held responsible if it does not fulfil the buyer’s expectations or is faulty in any way.

Almost free to a good home, all we would ask for is a donation to the village hall kitchen fund.
Buyer to collect.

Please contact the clerk on mail@foulridgeparishcouncil.org.uk to arrange a viewing.

The Story of Foulridge

We now have copies of the second edition on sale at a modest price of £5.00

This is 128 colour pages of historical brilliance showing the village from bygone times up to the modern era.

“This book does not profess to be a comprehensive history but tells the story of how the village has evolved from pre-historic times to the present and, with the aid of archaeological finds, place names and contemporary documents, vividly reconstructs a picture of village life over the centuries”.

To order a copy please contact the parish council clerk on mail@foulridgeparishcouncil.org.uk

Flagpole

The village now has a flagpole in the cenotaph area kindly donated by Karen & Dennis Mendoros.

The parish council would like to thank them for their kind generosity.

DOG FOULING

Dog fouling and irresponsible owners not picking up after them is becoming a serious issue in the village.

Particular areas of concern are the village greens (where children play) and the pathways through the allotments, but that doesn’t mean it is OK to leave it elsewhere.

There are several dog poo bins in the village but normal waste bins should be used if there is a shortage in your area. Persistent offenders will be reported to Pendle Borough Council who have the authority to issue fines.

Please try to keep our village clean.

AREA CHAMPIONS

We are looking for volunteers to look after the cleanliness of their area of the village – it is basically to keep the area clean and litter free.

Hi-Viz tabards, litter pickers and bin bags will be provided.

If interested please contact Jane Killeen on mail@foulridgeparishcouncil.org.uk or 01282 863174 stating which area you would be prepared to cover.
