Colton Parish Council-working for you!
The summer sunshine is a blessing as we continue with changes to our lifestyles in the “new normal”, as we slowly emerge from the total lockdown. Colton Parish Council members have been continuing to work in setting up arrangements for self-help and also to link into other facilities available in South Lakeland. We also hope that you have found our website and regular Colton Link publications to be useful and enjoyable and as we continue our work in supporting our Parishioners and would ask that you continue using these as helpful sources of information.
Our new “normal” has included the use of Zoom to hold Parish Council meetings and the June (29th) meeting was held in this way but was not ideal due to variable network signals across the Parish. We are also aware that this is not the best way to involve Parishioners in our discussions and so have taken the decision to cancel the meeting planned for 27 July as we were once again going to hold it as a “virtual” meeting. We are hopeful that the meeting on 7th September will go ahead “in the flesh” so to speak and we will keep you updated once we know more, in the meantime we hope that you have a safe and sunny summer and know that if you need any help or support from the Parish Council that you can contact the Clerk or your local councillor.
We are also looking at how we can support people who have been “shielding” over the last few months to re-join neighbours, friends and family in the great outdoors, and hopefully sunshine, in a safe and supportive way and so any ideas of events in your village such as open-air cafes, coffee mornings etc will be much appreciated. We have lots of potential volunteers on hand to assist and of course we would be very happy to publicise your event on the website and on Colton Link.
Please continue to keep an eye on the Community Events page for details of “virtual” online and open-air events being held to help pass the time in the company of others from the comfort of your own living room or in the great outdoors!
