Footpath between Barracks Bridge and Causewayhead corner needs cut back by a foot. Email to be sent to Cumbria Highways. Litter pick on Saturday was well attended with 12 volunteers turning up to help.

Agenda item to be included on the next Parish Council meeting to discuss the matter and decide on what to do.
Church has been sold and planning permission obtained. It was questioned why the field next to the church field is being fenced off.
Sign still not been put up at the Windmill road end.
Pipes have sunk next to Dockeray’s farm due to wagons and wagons are not being sheeted. The turning to Balladoyle at Oakline – the corner has sunk again. The amount of vehicles using the road is bad.
