All people from Threlkeld, Threlkeld Quarry, Burns etc are invited to this open meeting. It is a chance to look back at what has been achieved and look forward to what is being planned in the revitalised Hall. 

John Watson is trying to contact someone in Threlkeld:

Before Christmas I saw an advert on the internet for an old Claud Butler touring bike owned by someone in Threlkeld but didn't have time to follow it up until the New Year when I found the entry to have been archived.

Please contact John directly at johnwat4@ntlworld.com

 

Keith Wren has written to record his memories of Threlkeld Quarry:

There seems to be a little confusion about the names of the roads in The Quarry.  During the period which embraced WWI the houses were simply known as 'Quarry Cottages' they didn't even have a number (I guess on the principle that everyone knew everyone)  The two roads were later named as Blencathra View and Railway Terrace (Unofficially 'The Top Row' and 'The Bottom Row' respectively) After  the railway closed The Bottom Row had it's official name changed to Glenderamakin Terrace.

The Towngate Estate is Threlkeld’s oldest charity.  It was formed in 1744 by four separate funds coming together to buy the farm from Susannah Irton (then soon to be Mrs Spedding).  Now it has four fields let to local farmers and money in a charitable unit trust.

Anyone out there who may be interested in joining the village bowls club please note that, for the foreseeable future, the bowls club will meet on Monday afternoons, 2pm - 4pm, as opposed to Tuesday evenings 7pm - 9pm. 

The following items were discussed:

Housekeeping

The use of Mobile Telephones, Tablets and other electronic devices was discussed – Parish Councillors were reminded that Mobile Telephones were not permitted to be used during a Parish Council meeting, and that Tablets and other electronic devise were only permitted to be used for Parish Council business only. 

The new model standing orders (distributed at the last meeting) were adopted.  This was proposed by Cllr Tim Foster, seconded by Cllr Donald Angus, and agreed by all. 

Our task during the past month has being cutting back the hedge in the children's play area at the west end of Jobby Croft.  On a rather showery day five volunteers turned out to do the cutting back and burning.  Work is also in hand to repair the seat.
