Parish Councillor Roger Smith is holding a drop in session from 2pm to 9.30pm at Argles Memorial Hall on Wednesday 15th January. Residents are invited to view the plans for the proposed footpath through the village, from The Punch Bowl to Starnthwaite crossroads. Residents will be able to inspect the plans and discuss the proposals before deciding whether they support the proposal, or they would like things to remain as they are. The Parish Council will use this consultation to inform their decision on whether to take this proposal forward. It is important that as many residents as possible call in and register their views so that the decision reflects the wishes of all villagers. Plans and explanatory information are available to individuals by contacting Councillor Smith at The Exchange will be held as usual on Wednesday 15th, with the consultation taking place alongside.
