General news

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.

John Hopper, who was evacuated to Threlkeld in 1939, has sent this lovely description of his happy memories of his time here during World War 2.

My early memories of being evacuated to Threlkeld are those of a six year-old, in September 1939, being bundled on to a train with my nine year old sister, Dorothy and eight other girls bound for Penrith.

Would like to thank all who donated and supported our Bingo and Coffee Evening. We raised £354 which will be used to help pay for our Christmas Lunch in December.

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.

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.
