The village of Threlkeld in Cumbria is situated in the Northern Lake District, 4 miles east of Keswick and 14 miles west of Penrith beneath Blencathra mountain. Threlkeld Web is run for the Parish Council and provides all you need to know about local news, information and what's on in and around Threlkeld and runs alongside the existing "Beneath Blencathra" newsletter.

Following the 2015 floods which destroyed bridges on the Keswick to Threlkeld Railway Path, there are now new alternative routes available.  There are information panels near the path signposting the new routes or see the map here.

Meet village hall car park.  The task will be filling sand bags and installing emergency flood protection boxes

For well over 20 years the village of Threlkeld and surrounding area have run a separate group of Theatre by the Lake volunteers.  For most of that time we have had at least 12 in the group, we create our own rota and we guarantee the Theatre at least three volunteers every Saturday night.

We are now low on numbers and are looking for new volunteers to join the group.  Any newcomer will be given a short interview by the Front of House manager and will 'shadow' experienced volunteers on various duties around the Theatre.

The Government has set up anorganisation specifically to deal with this - At800 are funded by the UK mobile operators who are launching 4G mobile services: EE, O2, Three and Vodafone. Each operator contributes to enable At800 to provide corrective support to households whose Freeview services could be affected by the rollout of 4G.

Joanne Mackereth from Home Group is available to speak to about Home Group properties and the Cumbria Choice system:

07710 711692 / 01539 739544 / 0345 141 4663

There are copies of the paper application forms at the Post Office if anyone requires them. There is also copies of the guidance notes for using the online system on Cumbria Choice.

Older and vulnerable residents in Eden parishes are benefitting from Eden Independent Living - an Eden Housing Association initiative that enables people to stay independent in their own home. Being able to choose from a wide range of services from one place has proved popular with customers and feedback has been very positive.
