NEWS FROM WARTON VILLAGE

There have been numerous reports of dog fouling on the village streets as well as some public footpaths. Most dog owners do pick up their pets poop although there remain a few who choose not too. Lancaster City Council would remind irresponsible dog owners that under the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act, it is an offence not to clean up after a dog has defecated on public land. Public land includes all public footpaths. A person may be issued with an £80 fixed penalty fine, if they do not clean up, or alternatively may be prosecuted through the magistrates court, where the maximum fine is £1000.

The Village Hall Committee, Performers and Organisers are pleased to announce that the Charity Music Night held at the end of November 2023 raised £516 all of which has now been donated 3 ways to Warton Village Hall and the music groups chosen Charities, St Johns Hospice and Parkinsons UK.  A special thanks goes out to the musicians of Cragside and the Redcats who kept everyone entertained throughout the evening and also the volunteers including Lindsey and Della who ran the bar and raffle, not forgetting Tony (Master of Ceremonies) and of course,  Chris who ran the sound system.
