Gosforth Parish Council are working together to support you.
Gosforth Parish Council have held an emergency meeting to discuss the impact of Covid-19 to the village of Gosforth. We have put together an action plan on how we as a Parish can support each other through this unfamiliar time.
Firstly, we are looking for volunteers to support the vulnerable and isolating residents. This support could be arranging deliveries, picking up shopping or medication, a friendly phone call, posting mail, help topping up gas or electric or collecting urgent supplies. If you feel you could offer help in any way, please contact:
Dawn Pennington (Co-ordinator) 07715182423, Rachel Rowe (Unsworth) 019467 25525/25235 or Paul Turner 07795169637.
Secondly, we want to hear from those that are isolating or feel vulnerable. Tell us what you need, how we can help. Unfortunately, as the situation worsens the list of people isolating will grow and you may need the help of a volunteer. You may be isolating and have support just now, but your support network may also need to isolate. So, if you need us now or in the future please get in touch on one of the numbers above.
We want nobody left isolated without support!
Gosforth Public Hall & Library is striving to become your very own ‘Community Hub’ and now you have a chance to make your views heard. The Public Hall Council of Management is seeking your views, ideas, comments about how they can make improvements to our Public Hall and Library to create a community hub.
If you are a regular user of the Public Hall and/or Library you may have ideas about the buildings and facilities or you may just have suggestions and comments about activities/performances you would like to see in the hall or information and access to services that would prove useful at the Library.
Whatever your ideas are, from minor tweeks to aspirational visions, please let us know.
There is now a board in the hall where you can post your ideas or you can write or email our Secretary, Jackie Williams, 2 Wells Cottages, Ravenglass CA18 1SP email: email@example.com or leave a comment on this page.
Wishing all our parishers and their families a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
Eagle-eyed residents may have noticed the new Flagpole installed outside the Public Hall thanks to a kind donation from Councillor David Gray. The weather could not have been much worse with a biting high wind but now the flagpole stands proud and no more risking life and limb to crawl out onto the roof to raise a flag.
