Crosthwaite Community News report July 27th 2018


Crosthwaite Exchange is taking a break and will not be open on Wednesday 8th Wednesday 15th August. The Village Hall is also having a deep clean, organised by the Exchange. This will be carried out by a cleaning agency the week beginning August 6th.

Crosthwaite Show Committee are keen to encourage budding artists and photographers to take inspiration during the school holidays. Children’s categories for both photography and painting are the same as the adult classes- ‘A Portrait’ ‘A Seascape’ , and ‘Flower Power’ and the class specifically for children is ‘An Animal’.

There is also an exciting opportunity for the children to design the show schedule cover and publicity picture for next year’s show. Posters going up around the village will feature last year’s winning design by Austin Jefferson.

Crosthwaite and Lyth Parish Council have made appropriate submissions to the Lake District National Park Authority for a Neighbourhood Plan for the Parish to be made. The first stage of this process is the application for destination as a neighbourhood area. This stage went live on Monday July 30th 2018. The purpose of this is to bring to the area application attention of people who live, work or carry on business in the Parish so that they are consulted during this initial stage. The consultation will run until Monday September 3rd and the LDNPA aims to determine the application by Monday September 24th.

A public meeting is planned for the evening of Wednesday September 5th in the Parish were the nature and scope of the neighbourhood plan will be discussed with the LDNPA present. There will be opportunity for anyone with interests in Crosthwaite and Lyth to express opinions and offer help in the making of the neighbourhood plan. Details of the time and venue for the Meeting will be published on due course.
