High speed broadband in Lowick
B4RN (Broadband for the Rural North) is a community benefit society which installs one gigabit-per-second capable full fibre optic broadband in rural communities.
Unlawful use of off-road motorbikes
The Parish Council is continuing to receive multiple reports of a large increase in the number of motorbikes riding unlawfully on footpaths and across designated land particularly in the area between Great Burney and Beacon Tarn and now on Lowick Common. Riders have also been observed riding on the highway illegally.
A great deal of damage is being done to the landscape and there are reports of walkers being intimidated. We still strongly encourage residents to report these events to the Police – the more reports received the more time will be devoted to curtailing this destructive activity.
Vacancy – Parish Clerk for Lowick PC
Lowick Parish Council is seeking interested persons that may wish to serve their local Parish community and also receive a small hourly wage for the time worked. Whereas Councillors work on a purely voluntary basis the role of a Clerk is a salaried position but with hours that can be varied to suit most individuals.
If you are interested please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for an informal telephone chat and to send the appropriate paperwork for your consideration. All training for the role will be provided – no prior experience necessary.
