Lowick Show 2020

This year the Home Produce committee decided to run a ‘Virtual show’. There were 10 classes, 5 adult and 5 children’s. The response was amazing and we had over 120 entries. The competition was just a bit of fun, with entries judged by selected committee members.

Winners will be announced along with a display of all entries on our Facebook page on Saturday 5 September (show day!) from noon.

Planning applications in Lowick Parish

Crake Community First Responders would like to invite more members of the community to become First Responders, especially in the Penny Bridge/Greenodd and Spark Bridge areas. 

Faster broadband in Lowick

The Government has recently started promoting an opportunity for residents in this area to apply for a very significant increase in broadband speeds at both residential and commercial addresses.

Some of you may already have received letters from Simon Fell MP promoting this funded initiative but we urge residents of the Parish to register their own interest here – https://broadband-upgrade-fund.campaign.gov.uk/ 

You will need to identify the location of your address to be considered for upgrade and specify whether it is for business (SME) or purely residential use. The more that apply the stronger our case for a community broadband upgrade.

Members of the Parish Council have already agreed to provide “Community Coordinator” support. Contact the Parish Clerk for more information.

East of lake – emergency road closure

The East Shore of Coniston (the C5018) has been closed by Cumbria County Council due to excessive and inconsiderate parking which has prevented emergency service vehicles accessing the area. It is only open for residents, emergency vehicles, cyclists, horse riders and pedestrians.
