NEWS FROM WARTON VILLAGE

Warton Gardening Club are please to present their ever popular annual plant sale which will take place on the morning of Saturday 1 June, 10am to midday in the Church Hall.  We'll be selling plants grown by members in the village with profits in aid of the charity Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis.  As ever we'll also be tempting you with tea and home-made cakes.  Please come along and support the Club and charity, and catch up with friends at the same time.  Maybe even pick up a bargain.

Reminder - Warton Gardens open for National Garden Scheme 15 & 16 June 11am-5pm

We are so lucky in Warton to have 6 gardens plus the allotments opening for the National Garden Scheme in June.   You can buy a combined ticket for only £6 to see them all over the 2 days of the weekend, plus home-made teas at 2 of the properties. Funds raised go to the NGS charities and you can find out more about this on their website. They offer a real insight into what's possible to achieve right here in the village.  It's a great event in the village so do save the date and enjoy this fabulous opportunity.

Village residents will be pleased to hear that the Parish Council have now raised the issue of speeding vehicles and reckless driving through the village with the Area Traffic Management Officer, Police  Headquarters Operations and the person who recently instigated traffic speed monitoring procedures in the village.  As a result of that monitoring it has been confirmed that there is a problem with speeding traffic through the village. The local Neighbourhood Policing Team have now been formally tasked to undertake formal speed enforcement action. No date for such action has yet been decided, as this will be dependent on competing demands as well as resources availability. Hopefully, irresponsible drivers will now be identified and appropriate action taken to deter future problems. The Parish Council in the meantime will be monitoring the situation closely.
