Carnforth Connect was due to be axed at
the beginning of September. However there has been a request for funding from
the Parish Councils to keep the Service running for another six months.
Hopefully further funding will be secured during this time. Members of the
Parish do feel that a bus service is an attraction but the service must be used.
P.C. Bassinder passed on apologies from
Deborah Gwilliam who has undergone a hip replacement. The Clerk will send a
get-well card on behalf of the Parish Council.

council, Lancashire County Council served a defect notice on United Utilities to

.The Clerk was asked to ask United Utilities to remove paint from Yealand Road
where they had marked out the services to the surrounding properties.
P.C. Bassinder was pleased to report no
incidences of crime over the last three months. He stressed the importance of
obtaining a log number when reporting any events.
P.C. Bassinder assured the Parish
Council that the police will deploy speed checks in the area. He felt that the
deterrent effect of the SPIDs were short lived. Both Warton and Silverdale
Parish Councils had decided against participation in the scheme.

The external auditor had asked for an
explanation for the healthy balance in the Deposit Account. It is expected that
there will be capital outlays in the current financial year. The charges for the
Lengthsman will also be higher.
Parish Councils in the area served by
the Carnforth Connect have been asked for donations. This is to keep the Service
running whilst other sources of funding are pursued. Parish councils are allowed
to give grants for transport under the local Government Rating Act 1997, section
26. Cllr Calnan felt that a donation from the Parish Council would show our
commitment to a continuation of the service. It was agreed to donate £500.
Yealand Conyers Parish Council have not
been notified or consulted on this matter. The Clerk would contact Cllr Martin
