What it means to be a councillor

Lancaster City Council is holding a special council meeting on Wednesday 24th September at 6.30pm in Morecambe Town Hall to address what it means to be a councillor, the likely time commitment, and how people can set about becoming a candidate.  There will be a mixture of presentations, workshops and the chance to speak to experienced councillors and employees of the council in an informal setting.

Playground Update

Sorry for the Delay!
We are working hard to get the playground ready.  Unfortunately we've had a few issues with the site and equipment but things are now on track and the playground will be open, ready for action, on Saturday 23rd August from 11.00 am when the official opening ceremony will take place.

Doorstep Incidents

Incidents have been reported of elderly residents being targeted for driveway work, particularly in the Leyland area. Rogue roofers (two men and an accompanying woman, in a white van) have
been working in the Simonstone, Padiham area. The woman makes friends with householders and asks for a glass of water as a way to get into the house. Residents are warned to keep an eye on their neighbours, report suspicions to the police or trading standards, and not to deal with anyone on the doorstep.
