A reminder that a meeting to plan the Evening of Family Fun will take place in The Royal on Wednesday 16 March - it would be great to have lots of people there, many hands make light work...

More sporting success!

Recently, Miss Rogerson of the village primary school, escorted 2 'High 5' netball teams to a competition held at Heysham High School.  Many primary schools were represented and the competition was fierce - especially when the 2 BLS teams faced each other in the latter stages of the tournament!
In the end, both teams played with real skill and teamwork finishing in first place and third place overall - a fabulous effort.

Changes to Bus Services

As part of £65m savings the county council has identified in its budget for this year, it has had to make changes to how it funds bus routes.  This is one of many difficult decisions it has had to make, and still has to find more than £200m additional savings over the next five years.  This will mean changes to some bus services from 3  April.  However, 60% out of the 113 bus services in Lancashire that is currently subsidised will still run in some form or other - though there may be changes to the routes and times of these services.  £2m has been re-allocated and county has worked with bus operators to enable this to happen. Their priority is to support services that help you get to work and education.  

Those bus services no longer supported will either be run by the bus operators on a commercial basis or will stop running after 2 April.  You can find out more on their website, search for 'Bus service changes'
