Survey Area Map

Police & Communities Together – Community Priority Survey

Do you have any ongoing neighbourhood problems in your area that you would like the Police to consider? Or would you like to meet the Police to discuss them in person?

Local Police invite all residents of Arnside, Milnthorpe, Kirkby Lonsdale and Sedbergh to fill out the linked community survey before 22nd February 2024.

The Arnside post code (LA5) does not appear on the drop-down menu currently. They hope to have the issue resolved early next week. In the mean time the residents of Arnside can select the LA7 postcode and then add the full details of the actual location, including the town of Arnside and the correct post code and they’ll pick it up when the results come in.

Pen & Correction Fluid Recycling

Sustainable Arnside

Sustainable Arnside is gathering strength and gathering a small fan club since supporting the ‘Retrofit made Easy’ event, arranged by Helen Chaffey and CAfS. It was a tremendous success and Paul Bates, the Chairman, introduced the Group to the large audience.

The audience was given the opportunity to have their say as to what they would like the group to focus on as, with so much that could be done, it was felt that local residents should be the guide.

A questionnaire completed at the meeting gave important feedback, and. with that feedback in mind, they can now make plans for the future.

As their first initiative, Sustainable Arnside is delighted to offer Arnside residents and visitors the opportunity to recycle pens and other writing implements.  All spent pens and correction fluid can now be recycled at. Arnside Fish and Chip shop, who have kindly provided a collection point at their premises.  

A plastic collection box can be found just beyond the takeaway entrance on the wall, close to the tin foil/can recycling bin. Its clearly labelled (see below) showing a list of what is accepted and what is not.  For full details see poster below.
