B4RN for Hornby, Claughton and Farleton – June Update

Hornby

We are still working to complete the B4RN installation in Hornby. It is almost 3 years since we started, but over 12 months was used agreeing routes with major landowners and waiting for road cuts. We are down to very few volunteers but Dave Conner and Rachel Murton deserve a special mention as they are consistently there to help.

Recent work brought Station Road west and half of Strands Farm Court live. Main St west is in the queue for fusing by B4RN. The Castle Inn has been connected to B4RN and connection is available for Lingard Gate properties, but as yet, no residents have requested it.

Work to be done:

– We are working hard on Hornby Hall Close and will be installing the chamber next week.
– We have just received a modified way leave for The Old Police Houses and that allows completion.
– Gressgarth and the Doctors Surgery are to be progressed by a resident.
– We are waiting for a wayleave to complete Stands Farm Court.

Then we can hang up our spades and drills!

Farleton

We have made progress this month and a chamber has been installed in the field at Valley view.

Thanks to all the B4RN professionals who are brilliantly helpful. As always, please email b4rn4hornby@gmail.com for further information about the rollout in Hornby and Farleton, or if you are able to help out.

Flower Club

Our next meeting on Thursday the 15th June is a visit to Rebecca’s garden and is a follow -on from her talk on garden design. After this we will have a well earned break until Thursday the 21st September when we start our new programme.

Wishing you a very good summer with we hope, plenty of sunshine!

The Committee.

Singing Groups

Both the afternoon and evening groups came together to take part in the concert in St. Margaret’s church on the 6th May. This was our first public appearance as a singing group and the audience seemed to appreciate our renditions especially of Ezekiel’s Wheel which is fast and furious.

Many thanks to Gathered Voices who were the main attraction of the evening and kindly allowed us to join with them.

The event raised £400+ for the two charities.

We are now learning new music so this would be a good time to come and join us. There are no auditions, nor a requirement to read music, just a willingness to have a go.

Evening group. 6th and 20th June 7.00 – 9.00pm
Afternoon group. 13th and 27th June 1.30 -3.30pm

Cost £4.00 to include refreshments
For further information ring Pat on 015242 21449
