Generous Villagers Fund Defibrillators

Four villages in Bowness parish are on their way to owning life-saving public defibrillators thanks mainly to the generosity of local residents.

Bowness already has one up and running, situated outside the Wallsend Guest House and the village boasts more than 40 trained operators. The defibrillator is registered with the emergency services who may advise callers to use it while they are waiting for an ambulance to arrive.

Glasson and Port Carlisle are not far behind. At Glasson, Highland Laddie landlord Mark Messenger has enlisted the help of the Haaf Netter and Salmon Conservation Trust, a charitable organisation, to back the villagers’ own superb fund-raising efforts. They are now nearing their target of the £1,995 needed to set up a defibrillator in the phone box opposite the pub.

Meanwhile at Port Carlisle one villager has given their fund a massive shot in the arm. Farm worker Jonny Hogg agreed to have his four-and-a-half inch eyebrows trimmed, gaining sponsorship money of £1,000. The trim was carried out by Emily Hinks in the Hope and Anchor pub where other fundraising ideas have already raised £200. To reach the estimated £2,000 cost, Port Carlisle is applying to the parish council for top-up funds.
Their defibrillator will be mounted on the wall of the Hope and Anchor.

Anthorn, too, is in the process of applying for council funds and raising money for its own defibrillator.

Autumn Clean Up on the Banks 
Thank you to the Community Payback Team who come on a regular basis to maintain the paths on the Banks. But as we move into autumn it’s also a good time to tidy up and refresh the planting in the beds, and cut back shrubs. Can you give a hour of your time on Sunday 15th October from 10am to help out? Please bring gardening gloves and tools. 
Donations of spare perennial plants you might be splitting in your own autumn garden tidy would also be much appreciated. You could drop any plant donations with Rowena Beaty at Claremont before 15th October. 
Litter Collection on the Shore 
The next two litter pick events will be 
• Sunday 1st October at 9.30 am meeting at the Banks shelter 
• Saturday 28th October 10 -12 am, meeting beside Shore Gate House. This event is being organised by John Gorrill, a volunteer with Solway AONB, as a follow up to the very successful bonanza on 7th August when 12 volunteers collected 27 bags of rubbish! 
John says : ‘This is a joint event between the Local Community Group and volunteers from Solway AONB, Cumbria Wildlife Trust, and anybody else who wants to help.  If there are enough people with enough energy, we will clear the beach and the salt-marsh as far as the car park at the west end of the village.  Allerdale Borough Council will remove the rubbish in a special collection, so let's make it worth their visit!’ 
New Members Wanted! 
We are looking for new members to join the Bowness Community Group; would you be interested in finding out more? Our next meeting will be Tuesday 3rd October at Curlews and you are most welcome to come along to join us. In the meantime if you’d like any information about Bowness Community Group, you could speak to any of our current members:  James Graham, Bill Knowles, Maureen McKenna, Claire Allen, Rowena Beaty, Jo Jeeves and Marcia Leonard.

There is some music running alongside the film and there maybe people you recognise plodging in the Solway and running around the old station yard, now the playground.

Come along and join us at The Hope and Anchor form 4pm.

There will be no charge however we are having a raffle and selling hotdogs and popcorn. We always welcome any donations.

If this is a success we have other films running into the 50's and 60's to show.
