Our next meeting is at the hall on Wednesday 16 October at 7.30pm. We would love to see you there. Thanks.

Swimming Pool Redevelopment Updates

With generous grants of £5,000 from the Hadfield Trust and £30,000 from Cumbria Waste Management Environmental Trust, plus all the fund raising efforts so far we have raised enough money to deliver most of what we want with the pool buildings re-building project. All being well, the contractor will start on site in early October.

The project still needs more funds to furnish the café and carry out other works. “Buy a Brick” will therefore remain open for any generous donors until the end of October. Please go to www.greystokepool.org.uk for further details.


Greystoke Film Nights
We have the following film nights scheduled for the autumn/ winter.

  • Saturday 12 October – Fisherman’s Friend

Greystoke Swimming Pool Volunteers Evening and AGM

Please put Wednesday 11 December at 7.30pm in your diary (venue to be confirmed). That evening we are starting with a brief AGM and then will have a thank you evening for all the wonderful volunteers that helped keep the pool running this year.


Memories of Greystoke Pool and Playing Fields
As we move towards our refurbishment of the pool buildings over the winter, the Greystoke Pool Committee has been reflecting on how it all started.

When we have the new café next season, we would like to be able to put up a display to document the history of the pool and playing fields. We thought it would be interesting for local users and visitors to know about the origins of our wonderful pool and the playing fields. We are also thinking about a display book covering the history since the lease for the land was signed in 1966 and the pool was built in 1973.

So, if anyone has any information, memories or photographs of the building of the pool, or the wonderful times they have spent in it over the years, please would they share them with us to add to the display.

Lesley Lamb has kindly offered to gather all the interesting material; so if you have anything to share or know who will, please contact Lesley.

    11 Gardens and the allotments were open; we were supported by so many people and we couldn’t manage without them.

    Our thanks extend to all the unforeseen helpers who worked so hard to make the day a success. The bakers, the café ladies, who feed the many guests who turned up, the car park marshals, the helpers who put up and removed the sign posts and the people who spent so many hours preparing their gardens for this special occasion.

    An amazing total of £1780 was raised, surely the wonderful sunshine helped to bring out the public, weren’t we blessed!

    Greystoke Bell Ringers
    On Wednesday 31 July one of our support bell ringers, Ken Twentyman, celebrated his 90th birthday.

    Ken, who lived in Greystoke as a very young child, moved with his parents to Penrith, and has been a Church Bell Ringer at St. Andrew’s, Penrith for very many years.

    Greystoke Church Bells were restored at the Millennium, and we then needed a team of ringers to handle the Bells. Ken and other Diocesan Guild ringing members came along to train and support us.

    He has continued to attend Greystoke Tower each Thursday evening as a guest ringer, come rain, hail and snow ever since. We know we can depend on Ken should we have a short fall of ringers for special occasions though we recognise his first Tower is St. Andrew’s at Penrith.

    He is a remarkable gentleman and we’re proud to have him as a friend and ringer.

    On Saturday 3 August, three Greystoke ringers, with the support of three Penrith ringers, rang a Quarter Peal in honour of Ken.


    Greystoke School is looking for Co-opted Governors
    We’re looking for people from the local community, from all walks of life and backgrounds, who can bring different viewpoints, experience, skills and fresh ideas to the Governing Board.

    Being a governor gives you the chance to learn new skills and benefit from training, support and expert advice. It also gives you the opportunity to make a difference to how well the school runs, raise standards, and do something positive for the next generation. Working with the Governing Board, you’ll apply your knowledge and experience to benefit the local community, helping to improve educational standards for children and young people in your area.

    School governors take part in strategic discussions at governing board meetings which take place around six times a year in term time at the school. The Governing Board works as a team to ensure the school staff have the resources and support they require to do their jobs well and holds executive leaders to account by monitoring the school’s performance. Governors are often described as a “Critical Friend” to the School Senior Management Team, creating positive solutions for school improvements.

    If you’d like to know more about being a School Governor at Greystoke School, in the first instance contact eMail Gill Fawcett, (tel. 017684 83 572).

    Local Hedgehog Rescue – Appeal for Funds

    Local Hedgehog Rescue – Appeal for Funds

    Lynn Cowperthwaite has been running a rescue centre for hedgehogs here in the village for a while now. As her work has become more widely known, care has become more expensive so she has set up a GoFundMe page for donations. 

    I have rescued hedgehogs for a number of years, all self-funded. I now find myself in the position of being more known and therefore getting more rescues. Either I try to get help with funding, or I refuse to take poorly hogs or orphaned hoglets on, which I know I would struggle to do!
     
    I use lots of cat food (not fish) and biscuits, pate types for weaning, whiskers cat and kitten biscuits are best (no milk in) kitten powdered milk, kitchen roll, newspaper, good straw for bedding. I’ve just ordered another run for the garden, I use medical stuff and I would like a ‘pot’ of money for when vet attention is needed or I need to purchase things.
     
    To my knowledge, I’m the only hedgehog rescuer in my area.  So all those hedgehog lovers out there – I need your help!
     
    Thanks in anticipation
    Lynn
