The Warton Gardening Club Committee are delighted to announce that the club will be relaunching its activities in February 2022. The Committee has already booked a number of speakers and will shortly be in a position to publish our diary of events for next year. 

 Our first meeting will be held in the Village Hall at 7:30pm on Thursday 10th February 2022. As previously published, all members who joined in 2020 will have their membership carried over for the whole of 2022. New annual memberships will remain at £7 and non members may (subject to any Covid Restrictions at the time) attend meetings by paying £3 on the door. 

 We will soon be sending out our e-newsletter to those who are on our email database with information about the 2022 events programme. The finalised event diary will also be displayed on local village bulletin boards and the Village Post Office as well as the Village Website. 

 The Club is also hoping to hold a Coffee Morning and Plant Sale in the Church Hall on Saturday 4th June 2022. 

 The Club has been unable to hold an Annual General Meeting this year but various aspects that would normally be discussed and disclosed at the AGM will be published on the Village Website and made available at our first meeting in 2022.  Once again the Committee would likely to thank members for their continued support. We would love to see you all in 2022.

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.
