Parish Council Meetings and exercise of public rights:
By instruction from government all Parish Council meetings can only be conducted remotely, until further notice.
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.
We are aware that a number of users and volunteers are awaiting the re-opening of the Library.
Those of us who volunteered to be Trustees (David Halliday, Viv Halliday, Mel Gould, Hilary Cowley and David Ritson) met recently to review the situation, bearing in mind that the most important thing is to keep our users and volunteers safe. After looking at all the options, and taking advice form Cumbria Library Service, we considered that for the time being the Library should remain closed.
To put this in context, Cumbria Library Service has only opened Whitehaven and the other 5 large Libraries in in the County in the last few weeks offering a much reduced service, basically “click and collect”. Smaller Libraries, including Egremont and Millom, and the Community Libraries, remain closed.
Please rest assured it is our desire to re-open the Library as soon as we believe it is practical and safe but now is not the time. In the meantime please remember that you can continue to borrow books online using the Borrow Box service – https://www.borrowbox.com. We continue to liaise closely with Cumbria Library Service to look at how and when we can re-open and will provide a further update when we are in a position to do so.
The Sports Hall will be opened to user groups subject to conditions, please see attached
Latest government update: The Sports Hall will still be able to cater for more than 6 users at one time, provided all the existing restrictions are conformed to.
