Pedestrian access to platform at Garsdale Station

At a recent Parish Council meeting a concern was raised about the pedestrian access to the railway platform at Garsdale Station. As a result the Parish Council is currently looking into who is responsible for the various sections – whether Cumbria Highways, Network Rail, YDNP, the Parish Council or private owners. This is in order to have an informed discussion at the next Parish Council Meeting, and to decide to alert either Highways, NR or YDNP if appropriate. The Parish council would like to reassure everyone that they have no intentions, or indeed any powers, to take any action against private owners or residents.

Any correspondence which the Parish Council receives on this matter will be considered at the next Parish Council Meeting at the Village Hall on 21 March at 7.30 pm, which all Garsdale residents are welcome to attend.

Quiz Night at the Moorcock on Tuesday 5 June

There will be another pub quiz at the Moorcock on Tuesday 5 June, starting at 8.30pm.

10% of the cash raised from entry fees  for the last quiz was donated to the air ambulance, the remainder was used for prize money. We expect the plan is similar for future events, and will be confirmed on the night or contact the Moorcock for further information.

The previous quizzes have been good fun with a wide variety of questions posed by Neville Woodfine followed by a number of people kicking themselves at answers, so please come along and give it a try.

Tree Clearing during the Snowstorm

The Garsdale Parish Council would like to thank Stephen Labbate, John Park, Eddie Lord and Jodie Mitchell for clearing away the fallen trees that blocked the road during the “Beast From the East”. The road was completely blocked as was the back road due to snow, so there was potentially no access for emergency services to most of Garsdale.  Cumbria Highways where unable to carry out the work at the time.

PC Meeting 18 January postponed to 1 February

Unfortunately, several councillors are unable to attend the parish council meeting on 18 January due to illness and work commitments, so the meeting has now been postponed to 1 February 2018, at 7.30 as usual.

Hopefully the weather will be more travel friendly by then as well.
