Crosthwaite Village Hall October Update

The new Committee managed to have a short meeting at the hall on Thursday 7th October. Although normal activities cannot yet all be resumed, at least the Art Group has begun again. When we get used to the new timer for the heating, it should ensure no one feels cold! If any other small group wishes to start, please contact Kath Edwards.

The redecoration of the kitchen is now finished and the hall looks in good condition generally. The committee will continue to monitor the state of the exterior of the building.

The main concern of the committee continues to be the lack of income, so we thought we might start a 100 club. As many of you may know this is a scheme to raise money, whereby anyone wishing to support the hall could buy a number for £12 per year with a monthly draw for a small cash prize. More information on this next month. We do, of course, welcome any donations (which can be gift aided) at any time.

Committee: Vice Chairman: Kath Edwards, Treasurer: Jenny Waldron, Secretary: Helen Todd, Howard Lawton: co opted member.

pin B4RN

Hello all,

Some of the Governors at the school and some of the Parish Council team have got together to form a team to get B4RN (Broadband for the Rural North) for Crosthwaite village and area. B4RN are offering free internet for the school, village hall and church. We need as many people as possible to get behind this enterprise to show B4RN (a non-profit mega fast internet) that they will be able to financially support the route. Please help if you can.

Also, you can visit the B4RN for Crosthwaite Facebook Group and join to show your support.

Thank you to the many that are already helping.

You can read about B4RN Gigabit broadband in more detail here.

Clerk to Crosthwaite & Lyth Parish Council.

Note - the PC meetings are now generally held on the 1st Tuesday in each month.

Parish Council E-mail

The Parish Council has agreed that the use of electronic communication with Parishioners may be far more effective than current notice boards etc. and has subsequently agreed to establish a database (GDPR compliant) of Parishioner email addresses via which it can communicate with Parishioners. However, the challenge is in obtaining the email addresses of parishioners.

The agreed email address collection process is via an “opt in” system whereby those already enrolled can forward the Parish Council updates to people who we feel would be interested. The recipients can then "opt in" by contacting the Clerk to the PC at the following address requesting that they also wish to receive a Parish Council update.
