Public notice





Cumbria Police would like to advise the public that we are aware of a telephone scam whereby people who are claiming to be police officers over the phone are requesting members of the public to transfer money to them to assist in a fraud investigation.

There have been a number of incidents in west Cumbria specifically the Drigg and Seascale area. This is scam which has been reported in other parts of the country.

We would like to state that no police officer would ever contact the public requesting any money. We would like to remind people to remain vigilant and to contact the police to check on the identity of officers if you have any suspicions.

Report online at You can also phone on 101.

Alternatively you can contact Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111. 



Whilst not getting the attention that the shortage of HGV drivers has received, bus operators across the Country are also experiencing problems with recruiting new drivers. Therefore it is with regret, Hobans has further advised it has had to delay the start date of the above bus route until the week commencing 11th April 2022

The latest relaxation in the lockdown procedure means local amenities can be opened to the public. However, there are still restrictions and the government guidelines require a full risk assessment to be carried out. Such an assessment has been carried out for the play areas. See link below.

Covid-19 Play Area Risk Assessment June 2020



Update: The library services re-opening status and process report.

Re-opening is occurring in 3 phases; it is currently at phase 2. Only 6 of the main libraries were opened in August, the library service is proposing to open another 12 of the smaller main libraries. Smaller branch libraries, such as Seascale are in phase 3. Opening is based on a risk assessment check list and there are 5 essential requirements, such as track and trace etc, some of these requirements are mandatory, before a library can re-open. In this partnership the library services will provide signage, the necessary infrastructure and essential advice. Once all this is in place Seascale library will open along with all the similar libraries. At present, it is not possible to provide a re-opening date, but it will open a soon as it possibly can. If Seascale library opened prior to the recommended process, it would receive no support from the library service. To ensure necessary requirements are met, it is essential to have this support. The Parish Council will purchase Perspex screens and hand sanitizers will be installed, rather than just having a bottle of sanitizer ‘by the door’.

The Parish Council acknowledge this continued delay is frustrating, but assure users it is working to re-open it as soon as possible.
