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!


This is your last chance to have your say on the following;

Foulridge Parish Council seeks your opinion on the Christmas tree and asks –

do you prefer;

  1. A real christmas tree which is purchased every year?


  1. An artificial tree which would be substantially more expensive than a real tree but would last about 10 – 15 years?

Please register your preference NOW!

A Remembrance Tree

Sunday 25th March 2018

Today, the Parish Council planted a cherry tree in recognition of the role that our late Chairman Ivan Marriott, played in our village. Ivan was a committed leader of Foulridge Parish Council.

The tree was planted on the Town Top grass ‘triangle’ at the bottom of Noyna Road and
Kathy Marriott, her family, friends and Councillors were present.

Later, Kathy said that it was a very moving experience and asked for her gratitude to
be passed on to the Council for their thoughtfulness.

We wish her well.

Improving Our Paths

The Canal and River Trust Authority have been working on relaying and improving a section of the pathway adjacent to Lake Burwain.  It is from the start of the pathway, off Skipton New Road, leading some distance along the South-East side of the lake.
