Newlands Windfarm Update

Dear Neighbours H

opefully the arrival of the May/June edition of the Carleton Directory finds you basking in more of the great weather we enjoyed in April. Hopefully this early sun won’t be reminiscent of last year where it spelt the end of an early summer. Nevertheless if the rain has returned pour yourself another coffee put your feet up and enjoy a flick through your Directory.

This month’s edition gives you the chance to win a £25 voucher to use at the excellent new premises of Picture U Studios or if you fancy a meal out then the Crossword sponsored by Fantails could be just what you’re looking for. Looking towards the summer sun, High Society tell us of the colours to be seen in and speaking of colours turn to our Bumblebee garden feature to find out which flowers can help bring back this quintessential friend. With the councillors letting us in on the local news, financial advice from Financial Concepts and the usual excellent mix of advertisers, what are you waiting for…put the kettle on and relax. Until next time .. Best Wishes Claire

Building & Planning

W

ith all the recent National and Local news regarding an upsurge in Windfarm applications in the North of England we thought we would have a little look into the current situation regarding the plans for the windfarm near Cumwhinton. As you may probably be aware the plans for the turbines and latterly the meteorological mast were rejected towards the end of 2008. Nevertheless it appears that the matter is not yet finished as it is currently reported at www.againstnewlandswindfarm.co.uk that the applicants have since lodged a written appeal. As a result the action group have successfully lobbied the inspectorate for a full public enquiry. As an opposition group they have also been granted rule 6 party status which means they have the right to both speak and be represented by relevant experts who will argue their case and test the developers’ evidence.

Fundraising events will soon be planned if you would like to show your support. We will keep you updated.

A personal plea from www.againstnewlands windfarm.co.uk

“As we need to employ the relevant experts to argue our case and test the developer’s evidence. We are talking about legal representation from planning lawyers, environmental impact assessment experts and so on. To cut to the point we now all need to donate to the cause to help us fight this appeal by using all the tools available.”

P.C. PETE AND THE LOST BIRTHDAY PRESENT

DALSTON WARD

www.carlislelibdems.org.uk CUMBRIA COUNTY COUNCIL ELECTIONS 4th June 2009 DALSTON & CUMMERSDALE DIVISION

Trevor ALLISON Dear Resident,

I have worked in the Dalston city ward as one of your three Dalston District councillors since 2004. I have now been selected to stand in the election for the Dalston County Division. This is effectively an extended city ward which includes the Parishes of Orton and Burgh by Sands. It is the ward that I live in, and I was privileged to accept the nomination. If elected as a County Councillor I would do my very best for the two additional parishes, as I do for Dalston, St.Cuthberts Without, and Cummersdale in the Carlisle District. The dramatic improvement in the numbers voting for me since I first stood in 2002 is a testament to Liberal Democrat Community politics and my commitment. In our regular Focus Newsletters. I do my best to keep you abreast of issues which will affect your community. For example, the Planning Brief for Garlands Hospital which featured in our last leaflet will have a significant impact in your area. We are still the only Party to put out a regular Newsletter hand delivered across the whole ward, to keep you informed in this way. Lib-Dems on the The Economy.

Nationally, the Lib-Dems are recognised as a party concerned with the envi-

ronment and with social justice. But, since 2003, on the Economy, LibDem Shadow Chancellor, Vince Cable has warned Gordon Brown, the then Chancellor, that his policies would lead to disaster.

His advice was rubbished by Gordon Brown, who as late as last year boasted that he had abolished “Boom and Bust” and that we are better placed than the other developed countries to face the economic downturn. As we Vince Cable now know it was all a mirage.

At local level we are seeing closures and short time working, and in common with other Authorities, this is putting enormous strains on Council’s finances. We the taxpayer will be left to pick up the pieces both locally and nationally for years to come. I am committed; • • • •

t was a bright and sunny morning and P.C. Pete is taking his usual walk through the village. P.C. Pete is well known to everyone who lives there and everybody likes him. He always stops to chat with Mrs Price who looks after the Post Office; she looks forward to his visits. Pete often stops at the bakers for a cup of tea and has either a lovely sticky bun or a home baked pie for his lunch. Today P.C. Pete decided to have a piece of ginger cake with his cup of tea. It smelt good as he walked into the bakers, he could see Johnny Johnson the baker, taking fresh bread out of the oven at the back of the shop.

Everything was laid out on the glass counters in neat rows. There was fruit pies, cream cakes, chocolate puddings, fairy cakes, fresh sandwiches and so many different types of bread and it all looked very tempting. Mr Johnson was a very good baker indeed, but it is Mrs Johnson, that makes all the tarts and cakes.

“Here you are Pete” said Mrs Johnson “you’ll enjoy this”. She handed P.C. Pete a big cup of hot sweet tea and thick slab of warm ginger cake on a china plate.

“Crikey, that does look good, thank you very much” said Pete. Feeling refreshed, P.C. Pete thanked her again and went on his way.

“ ‘I like a happy ending’ thought P.C. Pete.”

As it was such a nice day P.C Pete thought he would take a stroll down by the river. The path was quite wide and was often used by the villagers as a place to walk their dogs or ride their bikes; there was even a picnic table, it was a smashing spot. Suddenly Pete heard a noise. He stood still and listened carefully. It was a soft whimpering sound, whatever was making the noise sounded very frightened. It seemed to be coming from the long grass by the wall on the edge of the path. P.C. Pete went to investigate and sure enough, he found a small golden cocker spaniel puppy shivering and looking very miserable.

“Hello there” said Pete, “You poor little thing, how did you get here”? “I had better take you back to the police station in the village; I bet someone is looking for you”. Very gently, P.C. Pete lifted the little puppy up and tucked it into his jacket to keep it warm. The little puppy snuggled down into the warm folds of Pete’s jumper. P.C. Pete was hurrying back to the village and just as he got there he could hear quite a commotion just inside the door of the sweet shop. He thought he had better pop over to see what it was all about. When he got there, he found Mrs Robinson the sweets h o p owner, trying to comfort a little boy who was crying uncontrollably with two of his friends. P.C. Pete knew the boys from the local primary school, where he often called in to chat with the teachers and sometimes play for a while with the little ones. The boys ran to Pete at once. “P.C. Pete, P.C.Pete, Robert has lost his birthday present”.

think I have found your present”. P.C. Pete opened his jacket to show Robert the little spaniel he had found earlier. “Oh yes P.C. Pete, that’s him” said the little boy joyfully. “Where did you find him?”

“He was by the river in the long grass” said Pete. “Gosh he did go a long way” said Robert. “What’s his name asked P.C. Pete?”

“It’s Daniel” exclaimed Robert. “Mmmm, Daniel the Spaniel, what a good name for him, well come on then, I will walk you three boys and Daniel home”.

P.C Pete, still carrying the little puppy in his jacket, took the boys to Roberts house where he explained to Roberts mum what had happened. “Small puppies like Daniel should not really be left outside shops on their own” advised Pete. “Daniel became worried and frightened, he panicked and ran off. Make sure someone responsible is with him if he has to stay outside a shop, don’t leave him on his own in future Robert, you must look after him properly.

“I promise I will Pete” said Robert. “I tell you what” said P.C.Pete, “I will come and see you both every now and “Oh dear Robert, how did you lose it again and see how you are both getting and what was it” said Pete, kneeling on, and I will try and teach Daniel a few down to talk to the boy. tricks if you like”. “It was a puppy” said Robert “I “Oh yes please” said Robert “I would thought I had tied him up properly on like that”. the post outside the shop”. “I was only in there a minute or two and when I With that P.C. Pete said goodbye to came out my puppy had gone. He is Robert, Daniel and Mum. ‘I had better too little to know his name yet and get back to the station and write my mummy told me to be careful”. With report; I will look forward to seeing that the boy started to cry again and much more of Robert and Daniel. I like held up the new red leather lead a happy ending’ thought P.C.

year. Unfortunately wildflowers have become scarce in the countryside and as a result bumblebee numbers have fallen, however if the right plants are grown at home in our gardens we can help provide a stronghold for bumblebees and other wildlife.

Gardens cover more than 1 million hectares of Britain, far exceeding the combined area of all our nature reserves. However, at present a lot of gardens are not especially friendly to wildlife. Many are covered with paving or decking, or are populated with exotic or highly cultivated garden flowers

page 16

One of the simplest things you can do to help your bumblebees is to leave an area of your lawn uncut during the summer. If you don't mow between late June and early August, your lawn will burst into flower with clovers and birds-foot trefoil.

"If you don't mow between late June and early August, your lawn will burst into flower... "

This needn't look untidy - make it an interesting shape, and border it with a mown path so that you can enjoy watching your bumblebees foraging away. Bumblebee season continues all the way through until mid September, so if you are thinking of some suitable plants, here are a few you could try… MAY- JUNE

Foxglove, Geranium, Honeysuckle, Thyme, Roses, Campanula, Poppies, Raspberries JULY- SEPTEMBER

Brambles, Lavender, Mint, Snapdragons, Heathers, Cornflowers, Thistles, Hollyhock If everyone provided just one plant from each list, the future of our surviving bumblebee species would be a little more secure.

Carol-Ann Ross

Y

ou may remember local resident Carol-Ann Ross from an earlier edition of the Carleton. With her friend and CoCommunity Staff nurse Karen Gill, the adventurous pair decided to recognise the work of our Macmillan Nurses and set about raising money by climbing Kilimanjaro. It may not be the easiest ways to raise money (of the 4000 people who attempt the climb each year only 1500 actually make it to the top) but the pair set about with a fervour in their attempts to raise at least £4000 each before beginning the ascent.

“...decided to recognise the work of our Macmillan Nurses and set about raising money by climbing Kilimanjaro...”

Not only were there the numerous charity events, quiz nights, bag packing and more to organise, but there was also the actual physical training to contend with. The climb to the peak of Kilimanjaro would take 5 days and at 5 times the height of Snowdon it is no easy feat, especially with a 30 litre bag! Whilst Carol-Ann hiked many summits in the lakes and completed days of walking on the East coast, you are more likely to have seen her on one of her favoured walks which at 3.5 miles took in Carleton Grange, Parklands and Scotby. Nearly a year after her training had began it was time for the big event. It was 20th February 2009 and she was ready. Meeting up with her walking group of 22 and the local guides who were expertly led by Ralph, the walk began. Life was about to change; with

blisters, long drop toilets, sub zero temperatures, no washing facilities, a diet of porridge, carbs and popcorn the days passed and the altitude sickness began to take its toll. At a height of 19000 feet oxygen levels drop and breathing naturally becomes more difficult. Whilst Karen was unfortunately turned away from the summit due to sickness, Carol-Ann and fourteen others made it to the top

and in her own words the sunrise made the 12 months of hard work all worthwhile,

“It was just magical. The sun rising in an amazing array of colours; the reds, the whites, the blues and a spectacular view over the glacier. It was just wonderful.”

After taking her fill of the newly formed day it was time for the descent which Carol-Ann found to be quite troublesome, with all attention being given to the climb the speedy descent was an unexpected difficulty.

Now safely home, it is all credit to Carol-Ann and her group, that save waiting for last minute donations the group may just raise £100,000 An amazing pounds. achievement and one of which she should be proud to have been part of. Does successfully meeting such a difficult challenge change a person? Well Carol-Ann full of pride in her achievement believes she can now meet any challenge and who could argue the point, not me…So what next for our local explorer? You won’t be surprised to hear that she has her eyes set on the Arctic Challenge which involves 7 days of travel led by two ex-marines, all in aide of the Anthony Nolan trust. With travel by skidoo, sledging and foot we wish her all the best of luck.

keep talking to them, I watch out for those most vulnerable, I care about people and what happens to them. I want to change things for the better and I thank those that help me. I persevere and work quietly and diligently. These are the most important things to me, never mind the meetings and the endless reading that comes with it! Party politics is only a part of the driving force behind the reason for working within the public realm.

Councillor Nicola Clarke

I

Hello All,

t is wonderful to welcome the light nights at last! I was beginning to feel very depressed; the winter season seemed to drag on for an absolute eternity! I don’t know about any of you, but the winter months seem to affect me in such a way that all I just want to do is snuggle down on the settee in front of the fire and sleep!! January and February seem to be the worst periods for me. When I see the first spring flowers such as the snowdrops and aconites I feel much better and my spirits are lifted, and it gets better when I can finally cut the lawns! Never mind, the blossom is coming out on the trees now and it does look fabulous. I have decided that I would like to have a white lilac tree in the garden, if anyone knows where I can purchase one please let me know, I would be very grateful. One of my colleagues reminded me that I am now half way through my elected term. The time seems to have gone more slowly this year. I know why, it is because the County Council elections are taking place on June 4th together with the European Elections which are on the same day. I have been working alongside the County Council member for our area, Cllr John Collier. John has been a County Councillor for a number of years and is known to very many of you. He has a long list of achievements which covers his ward of 30 square miles. He is the County Conservative Candidate for our ward again this year and values your support. Only Conservative votes will remove Gordon Brown and his tyrannical government from office. Only Conservative votes will keep the BNP out of the European Parliament. The Conservatives want to win these elections to save our country from further debt and halt the growing despair amongst its citizens. I have recently been talking to some folk who were unfortunately made redundant from Stead McAlpine. The shock of losing not only a job but the prospect of a decent pension and even homes are at risk. This is the full horror of what they and many other people in this country are now up against. I fully support them in their legal battle with John Lewis.

Manufacturing is down by 4.6%, this is the lowest it has ever been since the Second World War. When you go to the ballot box please remember the plight not only of Stead’s, Pirelli, and other large companies who are now feeling the effects of the credit crunch. Remember also the appearance of your city, the desolation of Botchergate and Warwick Road, the loss of post offices, small businesses having to shut their doors, the loss of investment for hundreds of colleges all over the country bungled by the government quango ‘The Learning and Skills Council and lets not forget how many banking institutions we now own! The list is endless. Some of you seem to think the Lib-Dems have the answer. If they were elected they would impose on us all a local income tax with almost immediate effect. Could you afford that on top of everything else?

“...everyone has questions regarding the adoption of the Garlands area. I can advise...”

Truthfully, I could do with more hours in the day to work within the ward and support you. It is a full time job and I do want to make a success of it. My colleagues often ask me what I do as a local councillor, the real core of it is this; I organise visits to peoples homes and streets, I listen to people when they want to talk to me and give them my time because that is my most valuable asset, if I can write a letter or speak with an officer or a leader of a council I do it, where somebody is dissatisfied or angry I

Finally, I know that everyone has questions regarding the adoption of the Garlands area. I can advise that phase two of the adoption is now complete. The County Council has advised that Story Developers have now taken responsibility for the final ‘snagging’ details and issues relating to the Barratt’s side of the estate. The sewage systems and waste water are still being tested, which is I understand, is the only barrier to final adoption. It is hoped this will take place late summer 2009. I do continue to remind Story’s of the rattling man hole covers, these must be rectified prior to adoption, I suspect it will be one of their last jobs upon completion. I did visit the area late at night with Cllr Collier during March 2009, to check on the street lights and follow up on reports of antisocial behaviour reported to me from residents on the estate. Please, if you have any lights out where you live, do report them to me. I need to organise one or two bins for certain sections, I am aware of the need for one in Valley Drive thanks to PC Angela Busby. I now have a web-site, www.nicolaclarke.net I am just getting to grips with it and adding the final touches!! It is another form of communication which I am looking forward to using and I hope you will have look and drop me a line. If you would like either myself or Cllr Collier to phone or visit you, my mobile number is 07927565267; Cllr Collier is available on 01228 522510. Thank you. District Councillor Nicola Clarke

If you have been a victim of crime, agree with you how often you would like to be kept informed of progress in your case and for how long. You have the right to be kept informed at least every month if you wish and for as long as is reasonable.

10. Acknowledge any dissatisfaction

with the service you have received within 24 hours of reporting it to us. To help us fully resolve the matter, discuss with you how it will be handled, give you an opportunity to talk in person to someone about your concerns and agree with you what will be done about them and how quickly.

WE WANT TO DO OUR BEST FOR YOU BUT IF WE FAIL TO MEET OUR PLEDGE, WE WILL ALWAYS EXPLAIN WHY IT HAS NOT BEEN POSSIBLE ON THAT OCCASION.

Colour is key this season whether it be in the form of vibrant prints or pretty florals in various colour combinations. So it’s time to be bold, express yourself and experiment. Colour is mood lifting giving a confident and positive look. Team bright reds with greens, purple with orange, blues with yellows, not forgetting the ubiquitous black and white; all of which provide a more exotic slant to the ice cream pallet of pistachio, pale berry and apricot and the softer metallic gold, ice blue and taupe which give a softer more feminine look (talking of feminine, ruffles which came to the fore in Autumn/Winter are still around for the Summer on jackets, blouses and particularly dresses, I digress, so back to colour) Pastel shades of pink, yellow and blue are great combined with the neutral

If however you or your wardrobe are not quite ready to be bowled over with colour then accessorise, accessorise, accessorise!! All the trends are carried through in accessories. Look for unusual print bags, in a variety of textures-mock crock, embellished fabric or luxury Chanel style quilting. Scarves with embroidery/detail need to be long enough to drape round the neck to give a Bo-ho look. Finally to create drama, jewellery needs to be oversized, bright and bold. If you go for a dramatic style wear more neutral accessories and vice versa. So although black and white are still a perennial favourite, let’s cheer ourselves up with a look on the bright side this summer!!

nvestors are facing another year of difficult decisions with interest on bank accounts dropping to near zero levels. Interest on UK current accounts was recently reported to average 0.1%. With higher risks associated with equities and other asset classes like property and fixed interest, many investors are wondering where to go next in order to maximise the returns on their savings. It is coming clearer by the day that the current economic recession is likely to be deep and prolonged due to the extent of the ongoing deleveraging process in the consumer, corporate and financial sectors. Recovery even on a subdued basis is not looking likely until at least 2010. Presently for UK equities the average historic dividend yield relative to cash is close to a record high and suggests good equity value.

Before clients consider other asset classes in order to increase their income or potential capital growth it is strongly recommended that they take Independent Financial Advice to ensure that any investment meets their risk profile and that they fully understand the greater risks involved with Equities, property, fixed interest and commodities.

Look Beyond The Banks

Many people are still relying on their banks for advice on their investments without realizing the advice is sometimes far from independent. We are all aware of the current state some of the banks are in because they haven't been able to manage their own risks yet they still ask their customers to trust them with their investments!

interior and exterior decorators

“...still relying on their banks for advice on their investments without realizing...” Sadly the days of having a local bank manager who looks after you personally have long gone and all staff from front line cashiers to Financial Advisers have sales targets to meet. To a bank, investment management is just another product to sell you. People should be aware there are so many other options but the most important thing is that they can get good quality independent financial advice from an independent adviser. A big concern is those retired people who have seen a drop of over 75% in the interest rates on their savings and we would urge these clients to find a good independent adviser and ask for a review.

If you are in a position where you rely on your savings for income or you are unhappy with current savings returns you may find a great deal of benefit in reviewing your current investment choices to either increase your income or grow your capital over the longer term. Please remember that other forms of investment carry a greater degree of risk and that the value of the investments can fall as well as rise and it is imperative that you seek advice prior to investing.

Poets Corner SPRING

Howard Laws Carleton Grange.

Thanks goes to local resident Howard Laws for allowing us to print his spring poem. Find out more about Howard in the next issues Who’s Who.

Spring has arrived on the trill of a song, Autumn is past and the winter has gone, Rich rustic hues, then white snow clad scenes Give way to the beauty of the various greens. Late frost have cleared, there’s a buzz in the air, New life is springing up, everywhere, Daylight is lengthening, dark nights slip away, Bringing new hope to our hearts day by day. Refreshing showers are quenching the thirst Of plants, bearing buds so eager to burst Into flower and leaf, once again this new spring, Painting colours resplendent, causing songs birds to sing. From seasonal slumber, nature awakes, Dons her new mantle with pride, and then takes A long look ahead, to warm summer days, Butterflies, honey-bees, golden sun-rays. Without even striving or working to gain, The earth is stirred up, revived by the rain. Why then should we doubt what tomorrow may bring, When God is in charge of tomorrow, and spring?

t last! Spring appears to have sprung with an array of flora appearing in our hedgerows, gardens and window boxes, whilst on the high street its FLORALS bursting thro’ from romantic delicate prints to big bold flowers, taking us from Spring to Summer.

Colour is key this season whether it be in the form of vibrant prints or pretty florals in various colour combinations. So it’s time to be bold, express yourself and experiment. Colour is mood lifting giving a confident and positive look. Team bright reds with greens, purple with orange, blues with yellows, not forgetting the ubiquitous black and white; all of which provide a more exotic slant to the ice cream pallet of pistachio, pale berry and apricot and the softer metallic gold, ice blue and taupe which give a softer more feminine look (talking of feminine, ruffles which came to the fore in Autumn/Winter are still around for the Summer on jackets, blouses and particularly dresses, I digress, so back to colour) Pastel shades of pink, yellow and blue are great combined with the neutral

summer are cropped or rolled to just above the ankle, skinny or loose, so in the words of eighties girl band Bananarama “It ain’t what you do it’s the way that you do it”–so start washing!!

If however you or your wardrobe are not quite ready to be bowled over with colour then accessorise, accessorise, accessorise!! All the trends are carried through in accessories. Look for unusual print bags, in a variety of textures-mock crock, embellished fabric or luxury Chanel style quilting. Scarves with embroidery/detail need to be long enough to drape round the neck to give a Bo-ho look. Finally to create drama, jewellery needs to be oversized, bright and bold. If you go for a dramatic style wear more neutral accessories and vice versa. So although black and white are still a perennial favourite, let’s cheer ourselves up with a look on the bright side this summer!!

nvestors are facing another year of difficult decisions with interest on bank accounts dropping to near zero levels. Interest on UK current accounts was recently reported to average 0.1%. With higher risks associated with equities and other asset classes like property and fixed interest, many investors are wondering where to go next in order to maximise the returns on their savings. It is coming clearer by the day that the current economic recession is likely to be deep and prolonged due to the extent of the ongoing deleveraging process in the consumer, corporate and financial sectors. Recovery even on a subdued basis is not looking likely until at least 2010. Presently for UK equities the average historic dividend yield relative to cash is close to a record high and suggests good equity value.

Before clients consider other asset classes in order to increase their income or potential capital growth it is strongly recommended that they take Independent Financial Advice to ensure that any investment meets their risk profile and that they fully understand the greater risks involved with Equities, property, fixed interest and commodities.

Look Beyond The Banks

Many people are still relying on their banks for advice on their investments without realizing the advice is sometimes far from independent. We are all aware of the current state some of the banks are in because they haven't been able to manage their own risks yet they still ask their customers to trust them with their investments!

interior and exterior decorators

“...still relying on their banks for advice on their investments without realizing...” Sadly the days of having a local bank manager who looks after you personally have long gone and all staff from front line cashiers to Financial Advisers have sales targets to meet. To a bank, investment management is just another product to sell you. People should be aware there are so many other options but the most important thing is that they can get good quality independent financial advice from an independent adviser. A big concern is those retired people who have seen a drop of over 75% in the interest rates on their savings and we would urge these clients to find a good independent adviser and ask for a review.

If you are in a position where you rely on your savings for income or you are unhappy with current savings returns you may find a great deal of benefit in reviewing your current investment choices to either increase your income or grow your capital over the longer term. Please remember that other forms of investment carry a greater degree of risk and that the value of the investments can fall as well as rise and it is imperative that you seek advice prior to investing.

• If agreed that attendance is not necessary we will give you advice, answer your questions and/or put you in touch with someone who can help you.

2. Provide you with information so you know who your dedicated Neighbourhood Policing Team is, where they are based, how to contact them and how to work with them.

3. Ensure your Neighbourhood Policing Team and other police patrols are visible and on your patch at times when they will be most effective and when you tell us you most need them.

7. Arrange regular public meetings to agree your priorities, at least once a month, giving you a chance to meet your local team with other members of your community. These will include opportunities such as surgeries, street briefings and mobile police station visits which will be arranged to meet local needs and requirements.

8. Provide monthly updates on progress, and on local crime and policing issues. This will include the provision of crime maps, information on specific crimes and what happened to those brought to justice, details of what action we and our partners are taking to make your neighbourhood safer and information on how your force is performing. 9. If you have been a victim of crime, agree with you how often you would like to be kept informed of progress in your case and for how long. You have the right to be kept informed at least every month if you wish and for as long as is reasonable.

10. Acknowledge any dissatisfaction

with the service you have received within 24 hours of reporting it to us. To help us fully resolve the matter, discuss with you how it will be handled, give you an opportunity to talk in person to someone about your concerns and agree with you what will be done about them and how quickly.

WE WANT TO DO OUR BEST FOR YOU BUT IF WE FAIL TO MEET OUR PLEDGE, WE WILL ALWAYS EXPLAIN WHY IT HAS NOT BEEN POSSIBLE ON THAT OCCASION.

Hello All,

t is wonderful to welcome the light nights at last! I was beginning to feel very depressed; the winter season seemed to drag on for an absolute eternity! I don’t know about any of you, but the winter months seem to affect me in such a way that all I just want to do is snuggle down on the settee in front of the fire and sleep!! January and February seem to be the worst periods for me. When I see the first spring flowers such as the snowdrops and aconites I feel much better and my spirits are lifted, and it gets better when I can finally cut the lawns! Never mind, the blossom is coming out on the trees now and it does look fabulous. I have decided that I would like to have a white lilac tree in the garden, if anyone knows where I can purchase one please let me know, I would be very grateful. One of my colleagues reminded me that I am now half way through my elected term. The time seems to have gone more slowly this year. I know why, it is because the County Council elections are taking place on June 4th together with the European Elections which are on the same day. I have been working alongside the County Council member for our area, Cllr John Collier. John has been a County Councillor for a number of years and is known to very many of you. He has a long list of achievements which covers his ward of 30 square miles. He is the County Conservative Candidate for our ward again this year and values your support. Only Conservative votes will remove Gordon Brown and his tyrannical government from office. Only Conservative votes will keep the BNP out of the European Parliament. The Conservatives want to win these elections to save our country from further debt and halt the growing despair amongst its citizens. I have recently been talking to some folk who were unfortunately made redundant from Stead McAlpine. The shock of losing not only a job but the prospect of a decent pension and even homes are at risk. This is the full horror of what they and many other people in this country are now up against. I fully support them in their legal battle with John Lewis.

Manufacturing is down by 4.6%, this is the lowest it has ever been since the Second World War. When you go to the ballot box please remember the plight not only of Stead’s, Pirelli, and other large companies who are now feeling the effects of the credit crunch. Remember also the appearance of your city, the desolation of Botchergate and Warwick Road, the loss of post offices, small businesses having to shut their doors, the loss of investment for hundreds of colleges all over the country bungled by the government quango ‘The Learning and Skills Council and lets not forget how many banking institutions we now own! The list is endless. Some of you seem to think the Lib-Dems have the answer. If they were elected they would impose on us all a local income tax with almost immediate effect. Could you afford that on top of everything else?

“...everyone has questions regarding the adoption of the Garlands area. I can advise...”

Truthfully, I could do with more hours in the day to work within the ward and support you. It is a full time job and I do want to make a success of it. My colleagues often ask me what I do as a local councillor, the real core of it is this; I organise visits to peoples homes and streets, I listen to people when they want to talk to me and give them my time because that is my most valuable asset, if I can write a letter or speak with an officer or a leader of a council I do it, where somebody is dissatisfied or angry I

Finally, I know that everyone has questions regarding the adoption of the Garlands area. I can advise that phase two of the adoption is now complete. The County Council has advised that Story Developers have now taken responsibility for the final ‘snagging’ details and issues relating to the Barratt’s side of the estate. The sewage systems and waste water are still being tested, which is I understand, is the only barrier to final adoption. It is hoped this will take place late summer 2009. I do continue to remind Story’s of the rattling man hole covers, these must be rectified prior to adoption, I suspect it will be one of their last jobs upon completion. I did visit the area late at night with Cllr Collier during March 2009, to check on the street lights and follow up on reports of antisocial behaviour reported to me from residents on the estate. Please, if you have any lights out where you live, do report them to me. I need to organise one or two bins for certain sections, I am aware of the need for one in Valley Drive thanks to PC Angela Busby. I now have a web-site, www.nicolaclarke.net I am just getting to grips with it and adding the final touches!! It is another form of communication which I am looking forward to using and I hope you will have look and drop me a line. If you would like either myself or Cllr Collier to phone or visit you, my mobile number is 07927565267; Cllr Collier is available on 01228 522510. Thank you. District Councillor Nicola Clarke

year. Unfortunately wildflowers have become scarce in the countryside and as a result bumblebee numbers have fallen, however if the right plants are grown at home in our gardens we can help provide a stronghold for bumblebees and other wildlife.

Gardens cover more than 1 million hectares of Britain, far exceeding the combined area of all our nature reserves. However, at present a lot of gardens are not especially friendly to wildlife. Many are covered with paving or decking, or are populated with exotic or highly cultivated garden flowers

One of the simplest things you can do to help your bumblebees is to leave an area of your lawn uncut during the summer. If you don't mow between late June and early August, your lawn will burst into flower with clovers and birds-foot trefoil.

This needn't look untidy - make it an interesting shape, and border it with a mown path so that you can enjoy watching your bumblebees foraging away. Bumblebee season continues all the way through until mid September, so if you are thinking of some suitable plants, here are a few you could try… MAY- JUNE

Carol-Ann Ross

Y

ou may remember local resident Carol-Ann Ross from an earlier edition of the Carleton. With her friend and CoCommunity Staff nurse Karen Gill, the adventurous pair decided to recognise the work of our Macmillan Nurses and set about raising money by climbing Kilimanjaro. It may not be the easiest ways to raise money (of the 4000 people who attempt the climb each year only 1500 actually make it to the top) but the pair set about with a fervour in their attempts to raise at least £4000 each before beginning the ascent.

“...decided to recognise the work of our Macmillan Nurses and set about raising money by climbing Kilimanjaro...”

Not only were there the numerous charity events, quiz nights, bag packing and more to organise, but there was also the actual physical training to contend with. The climb to the peak of Kilimanjaro would take 5 days and at 5 times the height of Snowdon it is no easy feat, especially with a 30 litre bag! Whilst Carol-Ann hiked many summits in the lakes and completed days of walking on the East coast, you are more likely to have seen her on one of her favoured walks which at 3.5 miles took in Carleton Grange, Parklands and Scotby. Nearly a year after her training had began it was time for the big event. It was 20th February 2009 and she was ready. Meeting up with her walking group of 22 and the local guides who were expertly led by Ralph, the walk began. Life was about to change; with

blisters, long drop toilets, sub zero temperatures, no washing facilities, a diet of porridge, carbs and popcorn the days passed and the altitude sickness began to take its toll. At a height of 19000 feet oxygen levels drop and breathing naturally becomes more difficult. Whilst Karen was unfortunately turned away from the summit due to sickness, Carol-Ann and fourteen others made it to the top

and in her own words the sunrise made the 12 months of hard work all worthwhile,

“It was just magical. The sun rising in an amazing array of colours; the reds, the whites, the blues and a spectacular view over the glacier. It was just wonderful.”

After taking her fill of the newly formed day it was time for the descent which Carol-Ann found to be quite troublesome, with all attention being given to the climb the speedy descent was an unexpected difficulty.

Now safely home, it is all credit to Carol-Ann and her group, that save waiting for last minute donations the group may just raise £100,000 An amazing pounds. achievement and one of which she should be proud to have been part of. Does successfully meeting such a difficult challenge change a person? Well Carol-Ann full of pride in her achievement believes she can now meet any challenge and who could argue the point, not me…So what next for our local explorer? You won’t be surprised to hear that she has her eyes set on the Arctic Challenge which involves 7 days of travel led by two ex-marines, all in aide of the Anthony Nolan trust. With travel by skidoo, sledging and foot we wish her all the best of luck.

DALSTON WARD

www.carlislelibdems.org.uk CUMBRIA COUNTY COUNCIL ELECTIONS 4th June 2009 DALSTON & CUMMERSDALE DIVISION

Trevor ALLISON Dear Resident,

I have worked in the Dalston city ward as one of your three Dalston District councillors since 2004. I have now been selected to stand in the election for the Dalston County Division. This is effectively an extended city ward which includes the Parishes of Orton and Burgh by Sands. It is the ward that I live in, and I was privileged to accept the nomination. If elected as a County Councillor I would do my very best for the two additional parishes, as I do for Dalston, St.Cuthberts Without, and Cummersdale in the Carlisle District. The dramatic improvement in the numbers voting for me since I first stood in 2002 is a testament to Liberal Democrat Community politics and my commitment. In our regular Focus Newsletters. I do my best to keep you abreast of issues which will affect your community. For example, the Planning Brief for Garlands Hospital which featured in our last leaflet will have a significant impact in your area. We are still the only Party to put out a regular Newsletter hand delivered across the whole ward, to keep you informed in this way. Lib-Dems on the The Economy.

His advice was rubbished by Gordon Brown, who as late as last year boasted that he had abolished “Boom and Bust” and that we are better placed than the other developed countries to face the economic downturn. As we Vince Cable now know it was all a mirage.

At local level we are seeing closures and short time working, and in common with other Authorities, this is putting enormous strains on Council’s finances. We the taxpayer will be left to pick up the pieces both locally and nationally for years to come. I am committed; • • • •

I

t was a bright and sunny morning and P.C. Pete is taking his usual walk through the village. P.C. Pete is well known to everyone who lives there and everybody likes him. He always stops to chat with Mrs Price who looks after the Post Office; she looks forward to his visits. Pete often stops at the bakers for a cup of tea and has either a lovely sticky bun or a home baked pie for his lunch. Today P.C. Pete decided to have a piece of ginger cake with his cup of tea. It smelt good as he walked into the bakers, he could see Johnny Johnson the baker, taking fresh bread out of the oven at the back of the shop.

Everything was laid out on the glass counters in neat rows. There was fruit pies, cream cakes, chocolate puddings, fairy cakes, fresh sandwiches and so many different types of bread and it all looked very tempting. Mr Johnson was a very good baker indeed, but it is Mrs Johnson, that makes all the tarts and cakes.

“Here you are Pete” said Mrs Johnson “you’ll enjoy this”. She handed P.C. Pete a big cup of hot sweet tea and thick slab of warm ginger cake on a china plate.

“Crikey, that does look good, thank you very much” said Pete. Feeling refreshed, P.C. Pete thanked her again and went on his way.

“ ‘I like a happy ending’ thought P.C. Pete.”

As it was such a nice day P.C Pete thought he would take a stroll down by the river. The path was quite wide and was often used by the villagers as a place to walk their dogs or ride their bikes; there was even a picnic table, it was a smashing spot. Suddenly Pete heard a noise. He stood still and listened carefully. It was a soft whimpering sound, whatever was making the noise sounded very frightened. It seemed to be coming from the long grass by the wall on the edge of the path. P.C. Pete went to investigate and sure enough, he found a small golden cocker spaniel puppy shivering and looking very miserable.

“Hello there” said Pete, “You poor little thing, how did you get here”? “I had better take you back to the police station in the village; I bet someone is looking for you”. Very gently, P.C. Pete lifted the little puppy up and tucked it into his jacket to keep it warm. The little puppy snuggled down into the warm folds of Pete’s jumper. P.C. Pete was hurrying back to the village and just as he got there he could hear quite a commotion just inside the door of the sweet shop. He thought he had better pop over to see what it was all about. When he got there, he found Mrs Robinson the sweets h o p owner, trying to comfort a little boy who was crying uncontrollably with two of his friends. P.C. Pete knew the boys from the local primary school, where he often called in to chat with the teachers and sometimes play for a while with the little ones. The boys ran to Pete at once. “P.C. Pete, P.C.Pete, Robert has lost his birthday present”.

think I have found your present”. P.C. Pete opened his jacket to show Robert the little spaniel he had found earlier. “Oh yes P.C. Pete, that’s him” said the little boy joyfully. “Where did you find him?”

“He was by the river in the long grass” said Pete. “Gosh he did go a long way” said Robert. “What’s his name asked P.C. Pete?”

“It’s Daniel” exclaimed Robert. “Mmmm, Daniel the Spaniel, what a good name for him, well come on then, I will walk you three boys and Daniel home”.

P.C Pete, still carrying the little puppy in his jacket, took the boys to Roberts house where he explained to Roberts mum what had happened. “Small puppies like Daniel should not really be left outside shops on their own” advised Pete. “Daniel became worried and frightened, he panicked and ran off. Make sure someone responsible is with him if he has to stay outside a shop, don’t leave him on his own in future Robert, you must look after him properly.

“I promise I will Pete” said Robert. “I tell you what” said P.C.Pete, “I will come and see you both every now and “Oh dear Robert, how did you lose it again and see how you are both getting and what was it” said Pete, kneeling on, and I will try and teach Daniel a few down to talk to the boy. tricks if you like”. “It was a puppy” said Robert “I “Oh yes please” said Robert “I would thought I had tied him up properly on like that”. the post outside the shop”. “I was only in there a minute or two and when I With that P.C.

Newlands Windfarm Update

Dear Neighbours H

opefully the arrival of the May/June edition of the Carleton Directory finds you basking in more of the great weather we enjoyed in April. Hopefully this early sun won’t be reminiscent of last year where it spelt the end of an early summer. Nevertheless if the rain has returned pour yourself another coffee put your feet up and enjoy a flick through your Directory.

This month’s edition gives you the chance to win a £25 voucher to use at the excellent new premises of Picture U Studios or if you fancy a meal out then the Crossword sponsored by Fantails could be just what you’re looking for. Looking towards the summer sun, High Society tell us of the colours to be seen in and speaking of colours turn to our Bumblebee garden feature to find out which flowers can help bring back this quintessential friend. With the councillors letting us in on the local news, financial advice from Financial Concepts and the usual excellent mix of advertisers, what are you waiting for…put the kettle on and relax. Until next time .. Best Wishes Claire

Building & Planning

W

ith all the recent National and Local news regarding an upsurge in Windfarm applications in the North of England we thought we would have a little look into the current situation regarding the plans for the windfarm near Cumwhinton. As you may probably be aware the plans for the turbines and latterly the meteorological mast were rejected towards the end of 2008. Nevertheless it appears that the matter is not yet finished as it is currently reported at www.againstnewlandswindfarm.co.uk that the applicants have since lodged a written appeal. As a result the action group have successfully lobbied the inspectorate for a full public enquiry. As an opposition group they have also been granted rule 6 party status which means they have the right to both speak and be represented by relevant experts who will argue their case and test the developers’ evidence.

Fundraising events will soon be planned if you would like to show your support. We will keep you updated.

A personal plea from www.againstnewlands windfarm.co.uk

“As we need to employ the relevant experts to argue our case and test the developer’s evidence. We are talking about legal representation from planning lawyers, environmental impact assessment experts and so on. To cut to the point we now all need to donate to the cause to help us fight this appeal by using all the tools available.”
