Lowick Show 2020

Statement from the committee

Lowick Show committee have regrettably come to the decision to cancel this years show.

It is not a decision that has come to us lightly and we hoped that with being one of the later shows there may still be chance of going ahead. However, due to the ongoing uncertainty of Covid-19 we feel this is the best thing to do.

Stay safe and we hope to see you next year on Saturday 4 September 2021!

Green bin collection

Green bin collection to be partially reintroduced

A green bin waste collection is being partially re-introduced by South Lakeland District Council (SLDC) after it was suspended at the end of March.

SLDC suspended green waste collections in response to reduced staffing levels due to the Coronavirus outbreak and restrictions to ensure crews could work safely and comply with social distancing guidelines.

The council now believes it has sufficient resource to look at re-introducing a green bin collection on a monthly basis, while still allowing crews to work safely.

Starting week commencing 4 May

  • check your collection calendar and leave your green bin out on your next scheduled collection day
  • collection crews will begin emptying green bins on the round on the scheduled collection day
  • one collection per household each month until further notice

Not emptied

If your bin has not been emptied by the end of the scheduled collection day please take your bin back in and present it again on the next scheduled green bin collection day according to your calendar, when the crews will return to continue the rest of the round.
