POLICE URGENT ALERT

NOT OUR AREA BUT WORTH READING AND NOTING

POLICE URGENT ALERT:

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.

2019 FOULRIDGE CALENDAR

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.
