An update from the Lake District National Park on the Keswick to Threlkeld Railway Path

Threlkeld Parish Council are looking at updating the Parish Plan (Community Led Plan) and are looking to see if it is possible to get a representative from each of the active groups within Threlkeld, and any individuals who would like to be involved in creating a steering group to take part in revising and updating the Parish Plan (Community Led Plan).  The plan is not a plan of the Parish Council, but of the whole community, so it would be beneficial to get input and support from all aspects of the village and the groups within it.  If you are interested in being involved please contact Ra

Tickets will be on sale later in August.

In October a series of classes will be held in Wool Crafts at Threlkeld Village Hall.

The visit to the Village Hall and the Coffee Shop by HRH The Countess of Wessex proved to be a great success.  The weather was kind, HRH arrived by helicopter into the fields by the cricket club and completed the journey to the village hall by car.
