We are often notified of events, community schemes that are happening in and around the Parish that you may be interested in. These will be listed here
On April 16, Copeland will be launching our new kerbside recycling service in which we collect five items – paper, card, plastic, metal and glass – from residents’ homes. All those who receive our current black box service will receive our new service. Homes will be issued with three boxes (one for glass, one for paper, and one for mixed plastic/metal) and a weighted bag for cardboard. Lids/covers will be available to purchase from venues yet to be confirmed.

INCIDENTS OF NOTE
We have been made aware of Anti-Social Behavior with scrambler bikes which are using public footpaths & bridleways. This is causing concern as they appear to have no thought for members of the public that are using these tracks. I have informed the forestry and I am awaiting a reply. If you have information regarding these off road bikes please get in touch.
How can you help stop off road motorbikes?
Information that can help the police include: Names & addresses of the owners, where the bikes are stored, when & where the bike is being used (e.g. days, times & routes) information such as description of those who use the bikes & the make/model/colour.
Police Reform Act 2002
Where a motor vehicle is used in a careless, inconsiderate manner or is ridden off road causing or likely to cause alarm, distress or annoyance to any member of the public, police have powers to stop the rider/driver. If following a warning the person continues to offend, police can seize and remove the vehicle. A police officer can also enter any premises with force if necessary to exercise these powers.
CUMBRIA COMMUNITY MESSAGING
Please pass this message onto friends, family and residents of your areas to re highlight the issue.

It is managed by the Cumbria Neighbourhood Watch Association and offers you and other members of communities across Cumbria the means to receive crime information from Cumbria Police. You can select which information you wish to receive by managing your own settings, and it is completely FREE.

If you want to receive information but do not wish to be responsible for a larger group, you are still welcome to make use of this messaging system.
