General news

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.

The Towngate Estate is Threlkeld's oldest charity, having been formed in 1744.  It currently owns four fields and money which is held in a charitable unit trust.  The income from letting the fields to local farmers and the financial return from the investments is distributed one third each to the School, the Church and the Deserving and Needy of Threlkeld.

There are sand bag boxes distributed throughout Threlkeld.  The Village Hall Car Park and Town Cross have been updated and now contain pre-filled sand bags ready for use in an emergency.

Great News!   We are proud to announce that, again, we have won a Gold Award.
Thank you to all who donated and helped in any way, especially Les and John, to ensure our village was looking its best.  We had other winners too - the Horse and Farrier received a runners-up award in Retail and Hospitality and the War Memorial also received a runners-up award in the Continental Landscape category thanks to John.

The Parish Council are looking for volunteers to help with tasks in the village, mainly relating to Cumbria in Bloom.  If you can help, please contact a parish councillor.  Thank you.

If you have any spare wellies the parish council would be very grateful to be able to plant them up to use in the Cumbria in Bloom displays.  Pleasepass any on the parish councillors.

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.

We are now planting up boxes ready for judging in early July.  We are asking for your help as both Les and John are under the weather so can you please try to weed and tidy up outside your houses?  Thanks
