Letter from the Editor There’s a definite nip in the air as we have now passed well and truly into autumn. Exciting times here at Grange Now as along with our sister papers in Ulverston and up in Windermere we are now reaching more homes in the South Lakes than any other local newspaper - about 50% more in fact. As Ulverston Now has increased coverage area to include Dalton, the 3 ‘nowmagasine sisters’ collectively account for 30,000 copies a month. Closer to home we are launching a new regular feature this month. ‘Looking back in time’ brings you a monthly collection of images from days gone by. We would love to hear about any connections you have to the people or places in these photographs. In the next edition (deadline 14th October) we will be offering ideas for your Christmas shopping through our gift guide. Horrified gasps all round. It can’t really be that time of year can it? Well not yet, but if you have a business with ideas for our gift guide, then please get in touch.


Give a duck a home

Excellent homes are required for 8 beautiful Muscovey ducklings. The ducklings are mixed colours: white, lavender and black/ white and must go

in pairs. In lieu of payment, a donation towards the upkeep of the duck pond is requested. Please contact Tom on 07531 137971.

Christmas Shoeboxes The time has nearly come to drop your shoebox off at the various locations listed below.

Filling a shoebox is a simple and fun thing to do, and doesn’t have to cost a lot of money, and it really does make a difference to a child who has none of the basics we take for granted. The benefits of being a “local” charity are that a team from Cumbria takes the shoeboxes and brings pictures and stories back of the children who receive them and, as a small charity we have no staff to pay, so

any surplus funding goes towards longer term educational support for these children.Yiour box should contain educational supplies such as pens and pencils, toys (such as dolls, cars and tennis balls), sweets and hygiene items such as face cloths and soap. The campaign runs from November 1 – 12th. Drop your shoebox, together with your £2 donation at: Grange Now Office, Bay Search and Rescue Shop or the Tourist Information. There are other places too

Education until age 18 is compulsory but help with travel costs is not

What would you do in an emergency? The Rotary Club of Grange over Sands is to hold a free course of instruction to cover the situation ‘What would you do in an emergency’?

Several parents have been in touch with Grange Now this month about the cost of travel for sixth formers. One parent, whose son is travelling to Ulverston Victoria High School, is currently having to fork out £100 per month to get him there, and it is a similar situation for those travelling to schools and colleges in Lancaster and Kendal. We contacted both Northern Rail and Cumbria County Council for their response. A Northern Rail spokesperson told Grange Now: “In order to keep a fair and unbiased approach to all schools and colleges across the north of England, it was decided to withdraw this particular educational season ticket offer. These tickets are a Northern product, meaning we reserve the right to amend or remove them at any time. This decision was reached on a basis that is both non-discriminatory, commercially viable and practical from a logistical point of view, across our entire Northern network.

The venue will be the Netherwood Hotel on Thursday 10 November between 9.30am and 12.30pm. The purpose of the event is to give advice on how you should react in the case of dealing with an emergency such as heart attack, choking, severe bleeding, electric shock, epileptic fit, diabetic coma, falls or fractures and would you offer the right treatment? Tuition will be provided by Grange and District First Responders. Those interested in attending should register their name, address and telephone number at the Netherwood Hotel Reception Desk or telephone 07533 054 216. If there is enough demand, a further afternoon session may be held.

Community First Responders

Grange branch is delighted to be chosen by the Grange CO-OP to benefit from their new Local Community Fund. Every time a member uses their membership card when they pay for Co-op branded goods, 1% of what they spend will go towards their chosen cause. (21 September until 18 March 2017). Guidance and information is available on the North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) website for anyone to access for themselves and NWAS expect potential volunteers to apply on line. If anyone over the age of 18 would like to know more about the work and how the team operates, levels of commitment etc, please speak to David Waugh on 07770 477 733 or by email: davidwaugh100@

“However, we are investigating the possibility of introducing a residents’ discount card and if the proposal is deemed to be a viable alternative, it will certainly be something we will look into.” I am sure residents will welcome the fact that a residents’ discount card is to be discussed and, hopefully, granted. However, in the first paragraph of Northern’s response, they state: ”In order to keep a fair and unbiased approach to all schools and colleges across the north of England ....” How can you compare transport links in cities with those in rural areas? Tim Owen, Chairman of the The Furness Line Community Rail Partnership told Grange Now that a meeting is being held on Thursday 22nd September [the day we go to press] and the issue of scholars’ passes is on the agenda. Tim will give us an update for the November issue.

Cumbria County Council

Post-16 Transport Policy Statement – 2016 / 2017 Academic Year

Cumbria County Council sent their guidelines for Post 16 students which state: ‘Free transport will only be available….in the following circumstances: Qualifying Post-16 students from ‘low income’ families Qualifying Post-16 students who have a learning difficulty/disability’ While it is only right that ‘low income’ families should get help, it appears that so many families fall just outwith that threshold, and those are the families who are being squeezed, financially, the most.

MP, Tim Farron took up this issue some time ago but says he has made little progress and has found North to be ‘inflexible’. He says he intends to keep up the pressure on Northern and you can sign his petition at:

As you are reading this, Robin’s Runners will have successfully completed the Great North Run, which took place on Sunday 11th September. This is the second of three runs in memory of Robin Webster, better known to many locals as simply “Sir”. Following Robin’s passing last year, his daughter, Claire Logan, was joined by Philippa Skrein, Bryony Wilmshurst, Emma Teggart and Steven Teggart and, as a team, they decided to run in his memory whilst raising money for three charities that helped Robin and his family greatly. Those charities being: North West Air Ambulance, Rosemere Cancer Care and St Mary’s Hospice, Ulverston. Originally, just two runs were planned. On Sunday 22nd May, a group of five ran the 10km Great Manchester Run. Upon completion, Claire

The residents of Windermere Road were once again hit by flooding during the torrential downpour on 28th August, which left Windermere Road, the duck pond and the car park behind The Commodore completely underwater. The flooding was due, in part, to a lack of maintenance in waterways and also blocked drains.

realised that if they added a further half marathon then they would be running the distance Robin was flown by North West Air Ambulance from Furness General Hospital to Royal Preston Hospital. The entire team accepted the challenge of completing three runs, totalling 32 miles, as the distance brought even more meaning to their efforts. The team has changed over the year. Runners, Michelle Mellis and Fayez Muzammil joined them for the Great Manchester Run and will run the Great Cumbrian Run. Injury has prevented one member from running the Great North Run and another from running at all. However, all 32 miles will be completed by Claire Logan and Emma Teggart. If you haven’t already sponsored Robin’s Runners you can do so online at: www.virginmoneygiving. com/team/robinsrunners

At the beginning of September, a ‘Clear the drains before it rains’ campaign was started by Windermere Councillor Ben Berry which has led to a multiagency meeting which will take place in Victoria Hall on Tuesday 4th October at 7pm. Windermere Road resident, Andrew Baxter welcomes the meeting saying: “This is a good first step. After the floods there was lots of positive messages on social media but we need the drains and gullies cleared and a plan in place. If we don’t get a solution then my neighbours and I will be flooded again and again.”

Attending the meeting will be Cumbria County Council Flood Risk Management Team, Environment Agency, Cumbria Highways and South Lakeland District Council. County Councillor, Bill Wearing who organised the meeting said: “I called this meeting because the problems are only getting worse and working together we can overcome them. I’m urging the whole community to get involved and, as a first action, that the County Council clear the drains before it rains again.” You can sign the petition at:

Investment Matters By Jason Crane APFS CFPTM

At the turn of the year many financial experts expected interest rates to start to rise in 2016, yet on the 4th August 2016 the Bank of England reduced the Base Rate further to a historic low of 0.25%. The message here is that in the UK ultra-low interest rates are here to stay for the foreseeable future. be it single company holdings or an investment fund, you are entitled to a share of the profits by way of a dividend payment. The gap between the yield on these types of investments, and interest available on cash, is bigger than it has been for many years. By way of an example, the average yield on the current largest 100 companies listed on the London Stock Exchange is in excess of 3% (variable, not guaranteed). Making the most of your savings carries varying degrees of risk, from investment risk to that already mentioned, ‘keeping up with inflation’. It is therefore crucial to review how your savings/assets are structured on a regular basis, in order to provide the best overall return. The comments in this Editorial are only general and should not be taken as specific advice. It is important that you seek independent advice before taking any action on the above, or any other, subjects. It should be noted that the value of some investments can fall as well as rise therefore you may get back less than originally invested. Past performance is not necessarily a guide to the future.

have been simply wonderful. There's a great selection to choose from which can be tailored to your own requirements. Superb quality and a beautiful finish…we cannot recommend them enough.

By far the biggest debt taken on by the majority of UK households is a mortgage, many of who will benefit from such low rates. Conversely, those who have set money aside for future financial goals, held in cash based savings, will find their ambitions harder than ever to achieve. With providers using the Bank of England rate cut as justification to reduce offerings further we are seeing ‘Best Buy’ tables reflecting rates that are becoming closer than ever to the UK rate of inflation; having savings exposed to a rate below inflation means that the value of your savings would reduce in value in real terms. It is worth noting that policymakers predict inflation to be at 2% by 2018. Placing your savings in anything other than cash based deposits is not for everyone (this will depend on an individual’s attitude to risk), however, another comparison (than interest rate available against inflation) is that of the yield available on equities (shares). When you own company shares,

Seeing the Sites On 5th September, twelve members of Grange’s ‘3Ps’ Group, along with Grange Town Councillors, County Cllr, Bill Wearing, District Cllr, Eric Morell and Alan Williamson of SLDC contractors, Continental Landscapes visited thirteen sites which the 3Ps have massively improved over the past 10 years. Chairman of the group, Cllr Ron Shapland told Grange Now: “These sites varied from woodland and gardens, to the Promenade and the Community Orchard. They looked at work including: clearing and re-planting of green spaces, seats which have been painted and litter bins. They group also went along to the very popular

outdoor gym which is sited at the cafe end of the prom and also viewed the new information boards which were also courtesy of the 3P’s group.” Over a period of ten years, the Group raised over £70,000 and provided at least £50,000 worth of volunteer time. Thanks must go to members of the 3Ps committee and to the local community. They have given their time to make a contribution towards, not just helping to improve and maintain Grange’s environment and attractions, but also by designing printing and distributing leaflets. Quite a feat for a band of volunteers and one for which, as residents of Grange, we should be very grateful.

Bad day for people parking in Grange Wednesday 31st August 2016, was probably called, ‘Black Wednesday’ by many people who parked in Grange on that day, although, ‘Yellow Wednesday’ would be more appropriate. TEBAY BUSINESS PARK, TEBAY (J38 M6) CUMBRIA, CA10 3SS

Long lines of cars, each displaying a yellow parking ticket, could be seen all over Grange, mainly in the ‘one hour only’ parking bays. Does this mean Grange is full of petty criminals with no regard for the law or could they perhaps be hardworking locals who have jobs in our shops and cafes who, if they were to park in the car parks, would spend £25 of their wages, per week on parking. There are many who say there are plenty of places to park without using the parking bays, Fernleigh Road

for one. If there is one issue which Grange Now repeatedly hears about it’s from the poor residents of Fernleigh Road who cannot park outside their own houses because of people parking there. The parkers can’t win. Isn’t it time something was done for those who work locally? Any suggestions, please get in touch.


Funding for the square

LEFT TO RIGHT: District & Parish Councillor Gill Gardner, Parish Councillor Ruth Airey, Steven Morris, Parish Council Chairman Trevor Wilson, Parish Councillor Jonathan Ryland, Parish Clerk Lyn Prescott, Parish Councillor Margaret Keith.

On 7th September, Steve Morris of The Cumbria Steam Gathering, attended the meeting of Lower Holker Parish Council to present them with a cheque for £500. The money has been put towards the cost of resurfacing Flookburgh Square which took place on Wednesday 14th September. The Cumbria Steam Gathering vehicles travel through the Square, to Cark Airfield, every year and they were delighted to make a contribution to the Parish Council plans to improve the Square.

New life for the parish hall Plans for a mix of business space, shopping and commercial development on the site of the Parish Hall have been submitted to SLDC planning department. The plans also include a business hub which would provide hot desking and flexible short term office space. The project would involve the demolition of the Parish Hall and its replacement with a three storey building intended for a variety of active economic uses. The developers suggest that over thirty jobs could be created if the scheme is approved by SLDC planning officers and committee. The Parish Hall was sold over a year ago due its decline in use. The plans have been submitted following a rejection by Historic England to list the building. Initially designed as a four storey building, the project has been amended to

The applicants have stated that where possible they will use and recycle existing materials, renewable technologies and utilise a local workforce to complete the works. The development should be great news for jobs and local opportunities and there is certainly a lot happening in that area of Grange. A slightly wider issue is parking. The new Tesco development in the same area of Kents Bank Road will no doubt put pressure on the spaces available. Information can be found on SLDC website.

County Matters Over the last few weeks we have again had some extreme weather conditions with high temperatures, storms and heavy rainfall.

Unfortunately, Windermere Road in the Town experienced flooding on the road between one to two feet. When this occurs on our roads it would help if motorists exercised restraint in their speeds as the wash from the vehicles creates problems for the residents.

Professional probate advice available locally The death of a relative is a very upsetting and stressful time. There are many issues to sort out when somebody dies and it can be an overwhelming experience. Our role is to deal with the taxation and legal issues in a calm and efficient way, minimising stress and worry. We understand that administering an estate is not a commercial transaction and that a practical and sensitive approach is required. Our experienced team are here to help you as little or as much as you require, whether that is dealing with the administration from start to finish or simply dealing with the probate application. We know that the costs may be a concern and we will never charge you a percentage of the free initial free consultation initial consultation value of the estate. Our realistic fees are clear fixed fees fixed fees from the outset and we aim to offer fixed fees home home visits available visits available where appropriate.

I have arranged a multi-agency meeting so that the residents affected can discuss and suggest solutions to ongoing problems in Windermere Road. By the time you read this report those

Tim’s Column It has been a bit of a health month when it comes to dealing with issues that people have been bringing me.

I am becoming increasingly worried about the state of our health service in South Lakes. We have some amazing people working in healthcare around here but there just isn’t enough money to allow them to do their jobs properly. A report came out the other week showing that our local health trusts have much higher levels of work absence because of illness than the average for all health trusts around the country. We all know that high levels of sickness often indicate deeper issues than simply the poor health of employees. The feedback I get from people who work in health care in our area is that they are being asked to do too much in the time they have available. Our ambulance service has failed to meet its targets for reaching people in the most serious need

We have had a few different bands this year and the amount of money in the bucket each week has been amazing. So thank you to all those folk who attended the concerts and donated so generously. At this point I really must give a huge ‘Thank you’ to Victor Hindle and all the ladies of ‘Charity and Co’ who look after us so well every Sunday in the season. Sally Haines is already working on next year’s season and will be looking for sponsors for the concerts so if you, your group or your business would like to

residents should have an agenda and date for the meeting (see pg5).

The induction meeting for the library volunteers took place on the 20th September and again I must record my thanks to all for stepping forward and contributing to help enhance our library service. There has been an update on the County Council Digital Strategy with the aim of making our web site as user friendly as possible so that residents are able to access information and services as efficiently and quickly as possible. Please try this out via our web site on Bill Wearing, Conservative County Councillor

for the past 6 months. We are told continually that the speed with which people suffering from a heart attack or a stroke are treated is critically important to their chances of survival. Just because we choose to live in a rural area rather than a big city should not mean we face higher health risks than other people in the country.

I have written to Jeremy Hunt, the Health Secretary, to ask him what his plans for reform to the NHS will mean for health care in our part of the world. A recent report calculated that our health care in North Lancashire and South Cumbria would be facing a deficit of more than £800 million by 2021 if nothing was done. That is a huge amount of money to find. There is no way it can be achieved simply by greater levels of efficiency. Either the Government comes up with more money or we will have to face massive cuts to our service. As ever if I can help with anything please email me on or ring on 01539 723 403. Thanks for your support, Tim

sponsor a concert please get in touch with her at the Victoria Hall.

Later in the month saw Jackie and I at the Cumbria in Bloom Awards in Penrith where we were very proud to see the awarding of an ‘Outstanding Award’ to the Bloom Group for their entry of the Station Border into the RHS ‘It’s Your Neighbourhood’ category. The group have already won a national award for the Garden of the Year at the Community Rail Awards for this garden so should be very proud of themselves.

And while I have no idea how many days it is until Christmas I do know the free Charity stalls at the Christmas Fair are booking fast so if your group would like one, do get in touch with Sally or myself. Cllr. Tricia Thomas

LOOKING BACK This month, we are excited to introduce a brand new feature, ‘Looking Back’. Every month, we will be stepping back in time, revisiting old photos from our archive, kindly provided, in large part, by Grange Civic Society, and piecing together interesting parts of our local history, hopefully with the help of your goodselves! This October, we are kicking off with this intriguing photo of a sand-boat on the sands. Despite digging around on the internet we can’t find a thing about sand-boating in Grange, so we need your help to find out more about this photo. Who are these gentlemen? What year was this photograph taken? Do you know anything more about this fun-looking sport and its place in Grange’s past? Do get in touch!

Jim Walton Toyota Jim Walton (Penrith) Limited is a true family owned and run business which has been trading now for over 40 years, the business was started by Jim from humble beginnings in the small hamlet of Johnby some 7 miles from the market town of Penrith in the late 1960s selling used cars and vans to the local community from the family’s small farm. The Japanese manufacturer Toyota was still a relatively new brand in the early 70′s in the UK, but its reputation for quality and reliability was renowned and as both businesses grew a business relationship was formed. Following a move to Penrith in ’73 the company evolved over the next 30 years with Jim’s three sons James, Alan and Stephen - ‘the next generation’ of the family progressing from leaving school and learning

the business from the bottom up, through all sides of the business. Over the years James took over the day to day running of the Aftersales department whilst Alan and Stephen moved onto the overall running of the Sales side… delivering a true family service. In 2003 Official Toyota Service Outlet status was approved, allowing the Sale’s Department more freedom on satisfying customer requests for other brand’s whilst still specialising predominantly in Toyota. The Servicing, Maintenance, Toyota genuine parts supply and repairs under the Toyota Manufacturer’s Warranty remained unchanged. With the developments in Penrith town centre starting in early 2005 a new site was found on the Gilwilly Industrial Estate in the town and work began to extend and modernise

the existing building to accommodate new computer and phone systems as well as new state of the art MOT testing facilities. A brand new car preparation bay and wash area were also formed at the development. Complete Customer Satisfaction is the main goal consistently strived towards at Jim Walton’s and we regularly hold a top 10 position in the

UK in Toyota’s Customer Experience Survey. We firmly believe that customer loyalty only comes from ‘Exceptional Customer Service’. So, whether you’re looking for a new or used vehicle, Service or Mot, you can be assured of a service that is second to none from a true family firm at prices you can afford from a company who cares!

Marrow and Chorizo Bake Autumn is a season of deep greens, dark yellows and rich oranges and reds. Combining as it does the full flavour, colour and texture of Cumbrian chorizo with the gentler and often under-appreciated marrow, which is grown locally and delivered directly to the farm shop, this recipe from the Low Sizergh Barn kitchen pays homage to all that’s good about the coming season. After the energy of summer it’s lovely to slow the pace, get together round the family table, and tuck into a hearty and comforting dish.

Makes 1 large family dish Method

Ingredients 1 marrow (peeled, deseeded and cut into 1” cubes) 1 tbsp olive oil 1.5 pints of chicken stock 1 tsp dried oregano 2 cloves of garlic (crushed) 2 handfuls breadcrumbs 1 handful of parmesan cheese (grated) 250g lean back bacon (chopped) 1 Cumbrian chorizo (diced) 200g red lentils 1 400g tin of chopped tomatoes

Farm Shop Tea Room Farm Trail & Crafts

1. Pre heat the oven to 180c. 2. Fry the bacon and garlic in olive oil for 5 minutes. Add the chorizo and oregano and cook for a further 5 minutes. 3. Add the marrow and lentils and cook for another 5 minutes before adding the tomatoes and stock and simmering for a further 10 minutes. 4. Pour into a casserole dish and bake in the oven for 30 minutes. 5. Remove the casserole from the oven and top with breadcrumbs, return the dish to the oven and bake for a further 10 minutes. 6. Remove from the oven and finish the topping by sprinkling the parmesan cheese over the casserole and baking for a final 10 minutes. 7. Serve with a small salad of Growing Well leaves, and granary bread.

A GOOD OL’ BRITISH PIE The British take their Pies very seriously! There are umpteen national Pie competitions held annually around the UK, and the World Pie Eating Championships takes place ever year in Wigan. It’s one of our favourite foods in Britain, and has been widely celebrated and, no doubt, consumed in the last two weeks as we celebrated British Food Fortnight.

We, at Higginsons are no different. Pies have been on the menu here for 30 years, starting out as an addition to the fresh meat offering. Since then, they have developed a rather large following, much to our delight and our Pie range now extends to over 40 varieties. The thing that sets our Pies apart from so many others is the generous helpings of filling inside mouth-watering golden pastry – and, they’re all made by hand. But don’t just take our word for it! Here’s a lovely review we found on Trip Advisor, from a recent customer.

“This must be one of the best butchers/pie shops in the country. I bought a Cheese, Bacon and Potato pie and also a Pork pie. The Pork pie was probably the best my wife and I have ever had, and the Cheese and Bacon was also superb. The quality of these Pies will take some surpassing and they are packed with filling. People in Grange don’t know how lucky they are” If all this talk of Pies has got you salivating, here’s an October Offer from Higginsons that you won’t want to miss:

• 4 x Meat & Potato or 4 x Cheese & Onion Pies for £6! • 4 x Midi Pork or 4 x Steak, Ale & Stilton, or 4 x Chunky Steak for £10!

The above offer will be available in the Shop during October only, on a first-come, first served basis. Pre-order to avoid disappointment. Keep an eye out in next month’s Grange Now for our Halloween and Bonfire Night specials!

If you have 5 minutes spare and feel so inclined, please leave us a review on our website or on Trip Advisor to let us know what you think of our Pies.

October is the month of Halloween, and beyond fiddling around with pumpkins or chiselling out hard as granite turnips, (see, things were tough in the olden days) there’s still plenty to crack on with on your plot. If you have access to a greenhouse it’s worth lifting some herbs to prolong their availability, mint will do well and it’s worthwhile with thyme in case of a particularly brutal or very wet winter. I usually try and make a late sowing of parsley in pots for this purpose as well. You might read in a few books, or on the back of seed

Belinda will steal your heart

packets, that you can sow your broad beans for next year roundabout now, I’ve not had much luck with this, having tried on a number of occasions, I think either the local climate is too wet or the mice are too hungry.

season, so this extra time in the ground gives them a better chance of achieving a more traditional garlic shape, rather than the, still delicious, enormous mono bulb garlic/ onion monster you get from planting in spring.

Given the right conditions, a sunny spot and rich soil, they will yield knobbly white fist-sized bulbs of a quality far superior to any you’ll find at the supermarket. Beyond Thermidrome, other varieties such as Sprint, with it’s pinkish tinted bulbs, and Elephant garlic should also do well. Elephant garlic benefits from a long growing

You will probably have cleared a few of your beds by now, so continue to mulch as you go. If you’re just starting out and haven’t built up a decent compost heap yet, you could try a green mulch such as field beans or grazing rye that you dig into the soil in the spring. Green manures help retain a lot of the nutrients that might otherwise be leached out of the soil by heavy rain as well as adding organic matter.

One crop that I’ve had far better results with, seeming to be repellent to garden pests, as well as vampires, is garlic. A good variety to sow now is the cosmic sounding Thermidrome. You should get some optimistic little shoots before the winter, which in spring will transform into robust healthy plants.

I’m always tempted to save a couple of heads of garlic to sow again in the autumn. The perceived wisdom is that this can lead to a build up of disease but I’ve never had any problems, other than stopping myself from eating them!

A new book chronicling the red squirrel colony in Forest How, Eskdale is sure to capture the heart of everyone, not just those who love nature and animals. The book is about all of the squirrels but the undisputed star of the show has to be ‘Belinda’ who clearly loves the camera as much as it loves her.

The book’s author, Peter Trimming told Grange Now: “When I started studying the red squirrels, at Forest How, in 2012, I had no plans to write a book. However, I didn’t see the point of taking photographs without knowing which squirrels were appearing in the pictures. John Harris, co-owner at Forest

After several visits, it became obvious that I was compiling a nice photographic record of several squirrels; learning their ways, who would pose for me and who would run off if I approached etc. This continued until the summer of 2014, when squirrelpox struck. I always knew that this was a possible outcome, as the grey squirrel has been in Cumbria for more than 15 years. Over the course of two months, we lost all of our friendly red squirrels.

Visitors to Meathop Moss Nature Reserve near Witherslack are benefitting from 1,000 metres of newlyopened boardwalk which has just been installed at the reserve, thanks to a grant from SUEZ Communities Trust. The boardwalk will enable wildlife lovers to enjoy at close hand what is one of the best examples of raised peat bogs in the country. A variety of unusual plants can be found on the reserve, which is owned by Cumbria Wildlife Trust, including Sphagnum mosses, cotton grasses and bog rosemary. The habitat is also home to over 200 species of butterflies and moths. Meathop Moss Nature Reserve is free to enter and can be found off the A590 near Witherslack, on the road signposted to Ulpha.

How, with his partner Deb, had named one squirrel who visited regularly, and it seemed sensible to name the other ‘regulars’, so that we could easily refer to individuals sighted each day.

Fortunately, some survived otherwise there would have been no book!

Sadly, the catalyst for the book was John being diagnosed with cancer in early April 2015. Summer 2015 was chosen as the end point, in the hope that John would survive long enough to see the book published. Although that did not happen, John did have the text read to him and gave his approval”.

This charming book not only contains intimate details about this colony but multiple full-colour photos of his adorable subjects, in amazing detail. Copies of the book are available from: ISBN: 9781910878552.

Vale of Lune Harriers cross the bay

Offer ends next 21 days

On Monday 12th September, Queen’s Guide, Cedric Robinson OBE, led the Vale of Lune Harriers, including Master, Mel Brook, in a ride-out, across the bay. The group left Kents Bank Station end at 2pm for the 2 hour ride across to White Creek Caravan Park. Although very experienced riders, it was the first time riding across the bay for Tony Smith on Axel, Yvonne Shelley on Sam and Amanda and her daughter Sarah on Costa and Carina.

Improved facilities at Arnside Educational Institute An extension to the existing buildings was built to provide space for the Arnside Archive, as well as to provide additional storage space for equipment used in the Joyce Nicholson Hall by local residents. The local Link Library also recently moved into the building and is now fully operational there.

Local councillor, Ian Stewart was instrumental in getting funding from SLDC Locally Important Projects fund and Cumbria County Council, whilst Councillor Pete McSweeney has provided funds from the John Barnes Charitable Trust. A grant has also been received from The Hadfield Trust. South Lakes MP, Tim Farron performed the official opening on Saturday 10th September, alongside local councillors and residents.

Allithwaite Bowling Club raise £500 At their annual charity day barbecue in July, the Club raised £500 which will be split between Derian House and Jigsaw Children’s Hospices. This brings the total raised, over the last 7 years, to a whopping £3230. The Club would like to say a big thank you to Plumgarths for donating the sausages and burgers and to Hargans for donating the potatoes and onions. At the Open Competition, the main fundraiser for the year, Dave Gears from Carcraft

kindly sponsored once again, and they’re very grateful to Dave for his continued support. The competition was won by Allithwaite members, Jeanne Tattersall and Dave Slater who beat Mat Simpson and Joyce Foxcroft in the final.

The C Team also had a great season which saw them winning promotion into Division 4 of the Kendal League. A great year for the club which has 7 teams in all. If you would like to join contact Jeanne on 58531 or Bob on 36528.

Where do you write? I live in Sedbergh in an old cottage overlooking the River Rawthey and work in a little office upstairs where my desk faces the wall rather than the view of the Howgills – otherwise I might be gazing out when I should be planning the next chapter. My husband and I bought the cottage as a holiday retreat because in term time we lived at Rossall School where I was Head of English. Before Rossall we lived in Hong Kong where I taught English and my husband, an artist, worked in publishing. Why Dickens? When I retired from teaching, I did wonder what I might do after such a busy life. I had written plays and short stories to use in school, but a novel? It was when I started reading Dickens again and came across a book about his founding, with Baroness Coutts, of a home for fallen women that the germ of the idea came. I read about his expeditions with the police into the London’s slums. What about a crime story? My detective duo, Dickens and Jones came

Multi award winning duo head to Arnside Ninebarrow are impressing audiences across the country with their innovative and captivating take on the folk tradition. A multi-awardwinning folk duo, Jon Whitley and Jay La-Bouchardiere combine breath-taking vocal harmonies and melodies, delivering original songs which are inspired and rooted in the landscape and the history of the British Isles. As well as crafting

Describe your writing day? Sometimes I write straight onto the computer, but often I write in longhand. Sometimes the words flow more easily from a pen or pencil. I keep pen and paper by me at all times – just in case an idea comes. And I read Dickens’s novels and letters – I have to keep in touch with him. to life when I gave Dickens, a Superintendent from Bow Street as his partner. What if, a murder took place at the home for fallen women? I began to plan the first novel: The Murder of Patience Brooke. Matilda Richards of The History Press liked the idea of a series and accepted the first book. Meanwhile, I was rapidly planning the second,Death at Hungerford Stairs, which was published in 2015 – the inspiration for this came from my reading about Dickens’s experience as a boy of twelve working at the blacking factory at Hungerford Stairs.

Dickens was very keen on acting – he was, by all accounts, a very good one. The third novel, Murder by Ghostlight, begins in Manchester in 1850. Dickens had acted there in 1848, but there was no murder done, as far as I know! However, I was tempted by the idea of the discovery of a corpse on the stage, and more, by the dramatic notion that Dickens finds it. The body is of a man Dickens loathes and this is a fact that interests Inspector Hardacre of the Manchester Police. Hardacre is even more suspicious because Charles Dickens is found holding the

Making a lasting impression Sara Last is the Artist of the Month at Witherslack Community Shop this month. The ‘Artist in the Shop’ for October is Sara Last of Saramics Studio.Sara is an exciting, new, young potter who has taken to potting with gusto and pots are, sometimes literally, flying off the wheel. She makes bright,affordable


pots and seems to be fond of hares. This will be an opportunity to buy something new. We will also have in the shop hand knitted items made by Wendy Higson in wool and alpaca yarn. There will also be new paintings by Joan Eccles. It will be an exciting month in the shop so come along and have a look.

Grange now | OCTOBER 2016 - Next deadline 14th OCTOBER

Do you plan your books first? I have the main idea of the story to start with. I know the victim and the murderer and his or her motive, and, of course, the detectives, and that the murder will be solved. But new characters will emerge and take the story in a different direction. Let’s see what happens, I think. And if it doesn’t work, there is always the delete button.

Jean will be holding a book reading event at Grange Library on Tuesday 8th November at 7pm. Tickets priced at £1 can be bought from the library or reserved by calling: 32749

We were thrilled to see our very own Beth Holman’s design on the front cover of the 300th edition of Grange Now.

We have got off to a fabulous start to our new academic year! This term our value is ‘Friendship’ and the children have been showing excellent friendship qualities, with three children winning special certificates already! We spent the day at Castlehead Outdoor activity centre, working together to solve problems and strengthen our friendships. We welcomed 15 children to our Reception class this year and some new faces to our Nursery, and we couldn’t be more pleased. In the Snowy Owl’s class, we are learning about animals and are looking forward to a visit to Dalton Zoo. In Tawny Owl’s, we are learning about superheroes, designing outfits, complete with mask and cape, and the children are full of enthusiasm. Barn Owls have been taking their learning outside, writing Autumn poetry and making physical numbers, to explore place value,using all sorts of unusual objects. They are now looking forward to searching the quarry for ‘Stig of the Dump’. Will they find him? Eagle Owls have produced some outstanding persuasive writing inspired by the unusual book ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’. They are studying Maya and Space and are looking forward to an action packed Maya Day soon.

We were also delighted as our Year 6s arrived at Carlisle Cathedral for the Diocesan Leavers’ Service, to see Robert Wattam’s design in print on the service booklet. What wonderful achievements, to see your work in print! We have started the new term with vigour! Mrs Melanie Knight of Acorn Montessori Nursery and her staff have joined us as an independent

Over the summer, we had a lot of work done to create a new path and also installed a fantastic Playdale climbing frame and outside musical instruments.

We are delighted that we now have a great play area, and access to the woodland at the bottom of our field, all year round. All classes are now regularly using the outdoors for woodland skills,

Cartmel Priory School students have once again been celebrating GCSE success- well done to the 2016 cohort who performed superbly this summer.

GCSE success

We welcomed back our growing preschoolers after the summer break, and we are very pleased to have some new little ones joining us.

Comparisons to 2015 national data indicate that they have done even better than last year when, in terms of DFE’s key new indicator ‘Progress 8’, the school was in the top 8% of schools nationally. Across the ability range there were many stories of achievement and excellence. Examples of academic excellence at the highest level include Steven N: 7 A* and 3 As, James M: 6 A* and 3 As and Isabelle W: 5 A* and 4 As.These results are, however, just one element of a story of success. Pupils of all abilities made great progress, with several students overcoming

significant personal challenges to successfully move onto 6th Form or college.

A huge well done to everyone. May I take this opportunity to wish our past pupils the very best of luck in the next stage of their education. The school is proud of your achievements and looks forward to hearing of your future successes. Dr P Williams, Headteacher

Flookburgh School The start of the new school year here at Flookburgh has already proved to be a busy and exciting one.

We would like to offer a warm welcome to our two new members of staff Miss Boothby (class 2) and Mrs Martin (Class 4) and of course our reception class who have moved up from nursery. We wish them lots of luck for the terms ahead.

It was a wet start to the day and everyone was very muddy, but Year’s 1 to 6 enjoyed their visit to the County Show and had a great day with staff and parents.

It’s great to be back!

Thankyou to John, Keith, Sara and Alex for your donations, Matt and Tracy for hosting a quiz night and everyone that supported our refreshment stall

Grange CE School The start of the new school year is always exciting and, at Grange, everyone is enthusiastic and eager to start work.

On 16th September all the children enjoyed an adventure filled day at Castle Head Field Centre funded by the donation from Michelle Jurd Memorial Trust. Great fun was had by all and the children were able to take part in activities such as canoeing, raft building, climbing, low ropes etc and thankfully the weather was fantastic!

Please call in or speak to Gemma or Nichola if you wish to find out more about us.

School continues to promote Fairtrade and we had a stall at Prom Art on the 25th September selling Fairtrade items from Nepal as well as displaying the children’s artwork. We hope that lots of people were able to pop down to see us. Our amazing felted life cycle of a butterfly was created with the help of Emma Wheatcroft.

We are delighted to have recently been re-accredited with the Eco Schools Green Flag award which is an international award programme, providing a simple framework to help make sustainability an integral part of school life.

There has been lots of work going on at school over the summer holidays with many improvements inside and out and it all looks fantastic.

The children were very excited to see our new play equipment had been installed and were keen to start climbing! The new sun sail will provide a covered area in the grounds for the children to learn outside and make use of our excellent outdoor areas.

Prom Pumpkin Walk

Last year, Tracy Hathorn from the Keg and Kitchen decided it would be fun to have a pumpkin walk along the prom and it proved to be a big hit. This year, Tracy is determined that this year’s walk will be even bigger and better than last year. Organising and running this event does require quite a few people, so if you can help out in any way, please contact Tracy on: 83325.

Dear Editor, Prom Art needs help urgently Prom Art in Grange-over-Sands has become the largest open air art and craft event in the Northwest since it started in September 2004. It is held on the last Sunday in each month from April to September. Details are on: Our committee is now down to four members including myself as Life President. However we have excellent help from volunteers and paid stewards. We have a paid minute secretary/administrator,

Dear Editor, We would like to express our appreciation to the many professional people who attended to my husband when he was taken in an emergency to Barrow hospital. Following so much adverse publicity recently [about the NHS] this was most definitely not our experience.

Dear Editor I am very sad to report that one of our local residents has taken it upon himself to try and prevent bicycles travelling on the promenade, or just to cause trouble. On Thursday the 15th of September my neighbour and I were returning from a days cycling. We had travelled on the 15.33 train from Lancaster to Grange, the same train had been used by the man who had boarded at Carnforth. We were cycling slowly along the promenade in single file when we approached a lady and 2 men. We rang our bell in advance of reaching the people, the lady and one of the men used their common sense and moved to one side so that we could all pass safely.

Dear Editor On behalf all residents in Grange we would like to thank Suzanne, Peter and the promenade gardening group for the work they have done that has resulted in the promenade gardens looking the most colourful and well maintained flower beds that we have ever seen in grange over the 20 years we have had a property here. Suzanne has been the leader of the group for the past 2 years and with her husband Peter have put in

Dear Editor, Cllrs are having a moan about no one attending their surgery on a Saturday morning at the library,well 2 good reasons no one came is firstly the library has stopped opening on Saturdays

but are lacking an Hon Secretary. We are considering making our association into a Community Interest Company at our AGM which is to be held at the Commodore Hotel on Sunday 25 September, but maybe tempted to hand all responsibilities to a commercial organisation if one can be found. If you would like to be involved, or can offer suggestions, please phone me on 015395 35297 or Sam Spodofora, our chairman, on 015395 33477. Robert Leach, Life President From receptionists in the A and E department through to all the staff in Ward 5, the care and kindness was second to none. The prompt, calm manner shown us was extremely reassuring. many thanks to all concerned. Arthur and Beryl Brown from Davyhulme (Staying on a local caravan site)

One man however moved to the centre of the path and refused to acknowledge the sound of the bell, we then said ‘excuse me please ‘ to which he replied ‘ why don’t you get off and walk like everyone else ‘. Why cannot some people be tolerant to others and not always wanting to cause problems. Who wants aggro on Grange promenade, maybe he had a bad day in Carnforth, beautiful weather though. Let’s all share our beautiful promenade that is an asset and credit to the town of Grange over sands. Doesn’t this man realise that there are 3 cycle routes that come through the town, cyclists bringing their custom to the numerous cafes. We should be welcoming them not trying to antagonise them, when is this man going to wake up to reality. Name and address supplied.

FREE LEGAL ADVICE Wednesday 2–4pm Home visits available Professional legal help is of real value but many people still do not get the help they need when they need it. Our aim at Poole Townsend is to set high professional standards and to run our business to be strong, diverse, accessible and affordable to those who need help. Apparently, only a third of people with a legal problem seek professional advice and only one in 10 will take advice from a qualified lawyer. That can’t be good for us or for you. The reasons given in a recent article by our regulators, the SRA, include nn What it might cost me ŸŸ 63 percent of people don’t believe that professional legal advice is affordable for ordinary people (whatever ordinary is?) ŸŸ 75 percent said that cost influences their choice ŸŸ When people handle legal issues without help from a solicitor, it is often because they assume it would be too expensive or poor value for money nn My problem is too complicated nn I don’t have trust in professional advice nn I don’t know if the benefit of taking action is worth the time/cost. nn I don’t believe that the justice system is ‘fair and transparent’ nn I find it intimidating. So it is not looking good, is it? You don’t think it is worth the time to take advice and you have no faith in the system. But there are also plenty of websites that are busy late at night dispensing free advice that probably won’t fit your exact circumstances and which clearly state they take no responsibility for the advice given.

many many extra hours as well as the traditional Wednesday morning stint. It is sad that they have now decided to retire and hand over the running of the section to someone new, although we are sure the section will carry on the good work. They have never sought any publicity and got on with the job without anybody giving them the recognition they deserve. Well done , they can now revisit their many hobbies that have been partially on hold for the last 2 years. Alan, Margaret and Geoff.

We believe that we are well placed to help you get good advice and access justice. So what shall we do? If you come to see us, the first meeting is free. We listen to you and tell you how we can help, how and when that help will be delivered, over what timescale and how much it will cost. As far as possible, we work on fixed fees and where we can’t, we promise regular updates and the chance to pay as you go. A lot of our work is done on a ‘no win no fee’ basis so the risk is on us, not you.

which they couldn’t stop, secondly I and many others keep getting fobbed of by excuses like it’s nothing we can do its SLDC,when one of those mentioned is on SLDC. Maybe better if SLDC closed down GTC altogether then we would know who to blame. regards, J.Preston.

St Charles & St Cuthberts

Cartmel Quakers - From silence, comes faith in action Silence has been used for centuries as a basis for quiet contemplation and spiritual renewal.

Having missed the last three issues of Grange Now partly due to holidays and then through unforeseen circumstances, I shall briefly summarise parish happenings. ‘The Gift’, the series of videos and talks led by Fr. Parker, concluded towards the end of June. It was well attended with up to 28 participants from the various churches in and around Grange. In August, Fr. Aleks along with 40 or so fellow travellers from parishes around Cumbria, flew to Krakow, where the late Pope John Paul ll was Bishop. A packed 10 day itinerary took in visits to Auschwitz, the Cathedral of the Black Madonna and many other sites of religious interest. During Fr. Aleks’ absence, it was nice to welcome Fr. Parker back for 10 days’ supply. The work being done on the gardens and field has certainly paid dividends with the award of a Silver Gilt Certificate from the Civic Society. Many thanks to all whose efforts have earned this, whether paid or voluntary. Talking of the gardens & field, readers may have noticed that we have erected signs asking people not to exercise their dogs on the field. Sadly,we have taken this action because a number of people have not been cleaning up after their pets and this has led to unpleasant incidents where children and machinery have become victims of the selfishness of these owners. Finally, please look in to admire the newly installed stained glass window following its transfer from the former St. Cuthbert’s Chapel in Flookburgh. Local craftsman, Stuart Bricklebank, has done an excellent job transferring the window and altering it to fit its new home.

For Quakers, this forms the framework for our worship, meeting together in silence so that we can still our minds and open our hearts and lives to God. From the stillness, comes clarity and vision; then we

Grange Methodist Due to ceiling problems, the congregation at Grange Methodist Church, is meeting in the schoolroom.

can put our faith into action. To celebrate the value of silence, and to provide an introduction to those who are new to silent worship, we are holding some short periods of silent worship at our Meeting House (opposite the surgery on Haggs Lane, Cartmel) on Monday 3 October at 1.30pm, 2.15pm and 3pm, and also on Tuesday 4 October at 6pm

and 6.45pm. Each session will last 15 minutes, followed by refreshments, and is open to all. On the following Saturday, 8 October, we will also be holding a vigil outside the library in Grange, to hold in prayer those affected by climate change and those working towards achieving climate change justice. Join us at 11am for 30 minutes; everyone welcome.

The window ledges were decorated with flowers, but the main display was of groceries of all kinds. These were later taken to the Food Bank in Barrow. Cash gifts were to be shared between the Methodist Charity – ‘All We Can’, which supports third world countries, this year it is to be Uganda; and Water Aid.

Hope Church

At the end of August, 18 people linked to Hope Church Grange attended a four night event organised by Christ Central Churches.

Camping at Newark showground, we experienced some rain but this didn’t dampen spirits especially among our hardy Cumbrian band who entered the mini olympics event and were the only group to continue through the ‘downpour’. We were with other Church groups from around the world some as close as Kendal and some as far as Mexico

It was with regret and sadness that we had to say ‘Good Bye’ to the Revd Nick Ash. Nick always supported Churches Together, and we will certainly miss him, his presence and his wisdom.

St Paul’s Grange Members of St Paul’s and the Fell Church were able to say their personal goodbyes to the Rev’d Nick Ash at a Parish Lunch held at the Grange Hotel recently and also at an informal service to celebrate his ministry. Members of the Cartmel Peninsula team attended this occasion along with others representing various local organisations and the church was full as people gathered together to wish Nick well for the future.

A table top sale is due to be held in Flookburgh Village Hall on Sunday 16th October and Sunday 30th October.

Lifting the Veil on Boarbank

By Matron This month we were treated to two concerts; one by the Mothers Union choir which was enjoyed by residents and visitors, and the other by one of our staff members who “has the voice of an angel”. This was the first time I had heard her sing and my residents were right it was an absolute delight, needless to say she will be performing more often for us. The acoustics in the chapel are amazing so if you are part of or know any music groups that would like to perform for us please get in touch. Summer holidays are over, yes, the Sisters do have holidays, and although Christmas seems ages away we are busy planning parties and entertainment for both the residents and staff.

Grange Ramblers

Tuesday 16th August : Six Ramblers went up The Calf from Sedbergh, passing by Winder, Arant Haw and Calders on the way. It was a glorious warm day with magnificent views of the Howgills at the top. During the descent, we visited the Arant Haw and ended back in Sedbergh for a cup of tea after about 6.5 hours of splendid walking. The walk had been rescheduled from the 28th July, due to previously unfavourable weather conditions. Leader Tony Harrison Friday 9th September, three walkers started on Brunt Knott and Potter Fell walk on a cloudy morning. There was several light showers but overall a dry day, lunch was taken on top of Brunt Knott mainly in the cloud but occasionally break with far view, the 7 and half mile walk with 1700 feet ascent was led by Ian Cornway.

Lower Holker WI

At our last meeting, ‘Fun making Jewellery’, Jenny Wheeler encouraged us to play with her extensive selection of beads etc. By feeling and arranging the beads on our beading trays we all made ourselves a necklace and a bracelet. Much fun and concentration with Jenny’s help went into the design, before the choice of fastening type to complete the necklace. If you would like to “have a go” at different things: craft, drama, quizzes etc., why not come along to Lower Holker WI? Since joining, I have taken


part in and made things that I would not otherwise have had a chance to try! Thank you Lower Holker WI. Our next meeting is on Wednesday 5th October in Lower Holker Village Hall at 8pm. when Tom Clare will be talking about ‘Westmorland Villages’. Visitors most welcome. £3 including refreshments.

Cartmel Local History Society

A taste of Townend: Recreating recipes from 1699. The September lecture, by Emma Wright, House manager at Townend was centered on a recipe book, handwritten by Elizabeth Birkett. This contains culinary recipes, instructions for household tasks such as dying and removing stains, and cures for various ailments, such as nosebleeds, epilepsy, toothache, rickets. Elizabeth Birkett moved to Townend in 1703 when she married Ben Brown, the owner. She would have cooked mainly on open fires but she did have an oven, which would only be fired up about once per fortnight. The culinary recipes were mainly dishes for entertaining. Ordinary fare was dominated by clapbread, made from oats.

Emma described a number of culinary recipes, including stuffed pike, roast mutton, shred pie, venison pastie, spinach tart, and capon pie. Deserts included green pudding, little cakes (a bready bun with seeds), bean cakes (sugar and almonds), apricot paste (apricot and sugar boiled down to create jelly like sweets), ‘Mrs West’s cake’. Surprisingly, a wide range of unusual ingredients could be obtained from the village shop in the early 1700s. The evening ended with a tasting of sweetmeats made from one of the recipes.

Grange-over-Sands NSPCC

Despite the torrential rain on Saturday 20th August, supporters of the NSPCC turned out in force to enjoy “Tea in the West End”, which was held in the United Reformed Church Hall. Everyone enjoyed the musical entertainment and friendliness of the afternoon. Grange Over Sands NSPCC would like to thank everybody for coming and making it such a successful event, raising a total of £303.10. Our particular thanks go to Victor Hindle, Sue Harrison and Sylvia Trohear for their musical contribution and Margaret Northcott and Joyce Church. Margaret and Joyce come up with all the ideas for the August events and helped to organise the day. Our stalwart NSPCC supporters, Victor, Sue and Sylvia, have been busy these last two months and have raised a further £215 from two musical concerts they have given. We are indebted to them for helping this essential charity. Once again, thanks to all our supporters and we look forward to seeing you at our Christmas Coffee Morning on the 26th November in the United Reformed Church Hall.

Witherslack WI

There were 3 visitors at this month’s meeting, 2 of whom were from the USA! Members had very much enjoyed the ‘Walk around Kendal’ in July, followed by a meal at the Brewery. The bus trip to Barnard Castle in August was also enjoyed. A bowl of fruit was raffled as a start to the £10 challenge. Calendars and Diaries were on sale, also a calendar of Old Lindale produced by Sylvia Woodhead. The speaker was Professor Brian Wilson on “Postal History”. The study of this had opened up endless “windows” on social and national history down the centuries, starting with a Roman “letter” found on Hadrian`s Wall. Some of his finds were local and one took us to Tasmania. He has written several books on the subject which were on display. It was a fascinating talk.

Strange planning Christmas events when we are in the middle of one of the hottest Septembers on record. ‘Boxes of Hope’ have once again approached the Lions for our assistance. Along with filling many shoe boxes with useful gifts for children who have very little, we also help to finance the heat and light for the storage facility in Barrow, prior to their despatch. Lions, Jim and Daphne Rhodes also help in the warehouse to sort and load the vehicle. When we see the excitement and anticipation of the recipient children it makes it makes it all worthwhile. Many people in the community get involved with this project from the churches and other clubs and societies. It can be quite a challenge, as well as good fun, working out how many items will fit in a shoe box. Our next social event will be our 37th Charter Lunch at the Grange Hotel. Can you believe that 37 years of serving the community. We will be joined by fellow Lions from all over the north west to help celebrate.

Grange & District Art Society

Our Autumn programme is well under way. Members meeting again after the long summer break, enjoyed catching up on each other’s views and ideas before settling to work on their individual pictures. Clive Wylie’s demonstration ‘Painting Seascapes in Oils’ proved a real highlight. Those attending expressed such interest and pleasure that they requested a return visit by the artist, for him to lead a workshop.

Our creative members did exceptionally well at the County Show recently. Between them they scooped 44 awards – 19 golds, 20 silvers and 5 bronzes (red stars) – clearly the Rio effect has rippled out into Cumbria! Members will have a chance to see some of the award winning entries at our general meetings. A group of members went on a Treasure Hunt around Cartmel instead of our usual meeting in August. It proved to be an interesting night with several of us learning things we didn’t know about the village. Hope the vicar didn’t mind us trampling over graves to look for clues on some of the gravestones! In October, we will be holding our AGM and Zoe Daws

and described the various terms used by them. The whole talk was interpersed with humourous insights into his life experiences. He took questions from members. Several people had not been to an auction and he suggested it would be an interesting experience if they were to do so.

The next meeting will be the AGM and it will be on 12th October and will include a hotpot supper for those members who had previously ordered it.

Grange Probus Club

On 12th September, Paul Duff gave a very interesting illustrated talk entitled ‘North Peru by Motorcycle’. This trip was nearly cancelled due to a major earthquake in the area but Paul and his wife were not to be deterred and flew to Lima and then on to the town of Cajamarca once the centre of Inca rule. They visited Inca tombs and the sacrificial stone where once the blood of victims was mingled with irrigation water. They encountered many obstacles including a collapsed bridge where local people helped by carrying their motorcycles over the damaged area. Aided by their local guide, Fran they visited a pre-Inca fortress which had been the home of a people known as the Cloud Warriors. They returned to the coast for some well earned relaxation before their flight home. PROBUS is a club for retired men and women of the area to get together once a month to chat, have coffee and enjoy a talk on a wide range of topics from invited speakers. The Club meets on the second Monday of each month in the Netherwood Hotel. For more information on the Club contact: Chairman - Ken Thompson 015395 34898 or Secretary -Ewen Cameron 015395 32319
