CRAGSIDE

‘Cragside’ are a Warton (Carnforth) Village based Folk Rock band comprising of some 9 musicians. We play a variety of musical styles with a mixture of instruments including Electro Acoustic Lead and Rhythm Guitars, Bass Guitar, Ukelele's, Banjo, Harmonica, Bongos, Congas and other percussion instruments along with a lead vocalist. We mainly do covers of popular folk/light rock songs originally composed and sung by the likes of Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Eagles, Van Morisson, The Band, and Green Day to name but a few. We are all amateur musicians but enjoy performing as a group. We are now able to play at Local Venues, such as Weddings, Parties and other local Village Events. We are now taking bookings for 2022. To find out more please contact 07715297036 or send your enquiry via email to This email address is being protected from spambots.

The link for Warton Mires (which can be found under the Main Menu) has been updated.

Posted on behalf of County Councillor Phillippa Williamson City Councillor Adrian Duggan and Warton Parish Council, who have been raising awareness of speeding in Warton to the Lancashire County Council Speed Management Group. There is a Community Toolkit which gives examples of how residents can raise awareness of speeding or road safety issues in their local area.  The Partnership's Speed Management Programme, which is updated monthly with newly assessed sites and which includes the Community Toolkit information, is available on the Lancashire Road Safety Partnership website https://lancsroadsafety.co.uk/submit-concern/   If residents witness regular incidents of nuisance or dangerous driving, they can contact the police directly either by the non-emergency telephone number: 101, or on the Lancashire Constabulary 'Do It Online' webpage, with a record of the registration numbers of the vehicles. https://reportitonline.lancashire.police.uk/NdsPublicEngagementUi/index?force=lancashireconstabulary  I hope this is of help to residents, any further comments to This email address is being protected from spambots.

The Warton Gardening Club Committee, after careful deliberation, have decided that the club will not be resuming meetings until January 2022.  The Gardening Club diary of events for 2021 would normally have ceased in May and therefore, with the current situation, it is considered impractical to resume for the remainder of the year. It has however been agreed by the Committee that memberships for those who paid in 2020 will be carried over for the forthcoming year.  Hopefully the Committee will be meeting in the Autumn to discuss a full programme of events for 2022 and regular updates on the clubs progress for the forthcoming year will be published on this website.  We thank you for your patience and continued support.
