Public notices

There are sand bag boxes distributed throughout Threlkeld (Village Hall Car Park, Jubilee Croft, Horse & Farrier Car Park, and Town Cross) which contain sand bags and shovels, and there is a dumpy bag of sand at each location.  The code for the lock on the boxes can be obtained from any parish councillor, village hall committee or Horse & Farrier.  Please remember these boxes are for use in emergencies.

Threlkeld Parish Council adopted a new code of conduct at its meeting on 24 July 2012 to meet the requirements of the Localism Act 2011.

Eden District Council is introducing improvements to its kerbside recycling schemes this Summer and all parishes in Eden are set to benefit.

As of Monday 2 July 2012 the Greenbox kerbside recycling scheme provided by Eden District Council will include all households in Eden, to allow everyone to recycle cans, glass jars and bottles, paper and card and a welcome addition of plastic bottles and containers from their homes.  The new scheme will replace the existing kerbside green box and kerbside paper and card schemes currently operating until the end of June.

The new NON EMERGENCY police contact number is 101 and you will be automatically connected to the police in your local area. 

Alternatively you can email and the email will be forwarded to all the Lakes & Shap Policing Team for the first available officer to deal with.
