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.

As one gets older it’s nice to sit in front of the fire on a cold winter’s night and think of days gone by.  My thoughts often turn to my home village of Threlkeld and its connection with mining and quarrying in the area.

Copeland Borough Council, Allerdale Borough Council, and Cumbria County Council made an expression of interest in talking to government about siting a repository in West Cumbria.

THRELKELD PARISH COUNCIL response to the MRWS consultation:

We meet in the school hall every Monday during school term from 9.30am – 11.00am.

Teas/coffee and juice and biscuits provided.

Bring your knitting and join us in Threlkeld School Hall on Wednesday afternoons during term time from 1.30pm-3.30pm.

Novices or experts, you are all welcome!  For more details contact Kate Smalley (79370).

We now have a new stock of the popular series of six leaflets describing walks around Threlkeld. These have been produced by the Parish Council (with financial assistance from Cumbria County Council). They aim to encourage people to come to the village and enjoy the experience.
