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

The Keswick to Threlkeld Railway Path is impassable following the floods, but the Village Hall and Coffee Shop are both open.

On Friday 18th September, St Mary's Church is hosting a very special Fashion Show which is to be held at Threlkeld Village Hall.  Some examples of clothes worn during the last 200 years are to be brought to Threlkeld from a private collection.  To see them at their best we have been asked to provide four or five models, sizes 8 to 16.  If you would like the chance to get close to fashion, fabrics and needlework from the last 200 years this is your chance.

Tickets will be on sale later in August.
