Here we have the photos of the preparation of the site. They estimated that it would take 3 weeks to complete which included the groundworks to sign off.
Due to the great British weather in January and February 2024, this was extended by a week. The contractors worked through 2 named storms and the snow. Still, to complete this task in four weeks was amazing.
All works were completed by Live Play Educate Ltd, of Nelson.
I've received many compliments about the work and friendliness of the workers on site. I cannot thank Mark and Rebecca Eden enough for everything that they have done to get this completed within a short space of time, with absolutely no issues at all.
From the initial presentation of the proposed equipment, by the Parish Council Clerk to the Council in July 2023, I think that it has been a great achievement to have this completed by mid February.
The RoSPA report has been received and the site passed with flying colours. I'm very proud of this achievement.
We encourage our residents to attend Parish Council meetings and the item below is the guidance to how this part of the meeting will be conducted.
Each item will have 5 minutes only - and one of the Councillors will set a timer. You must make your conclusion within these 5 minutes. Councillors may ask questions following this 5 minutes, but no decisions will be made.
With reference to planning applications; if your application is on the agenda for discussion, you are welcome to attend and give the Council any information, other than that on the application, that you may have. You will not be permitted to speak during the Council's discussion of the application, unless invited to do so, by the Chair.
Residents often become aware of problems that the Parish Council cannot rectify.
We are here to help, but if you see any of the following, these are the phone numbers/web links to report them direct:
Highways issues including blocked drains, street lights, gritting issues - these should be directed to Lancashire County Council via the LoveCleanStreets App.
Refuse collections, full litter or dog fouling bins - these should be directed to Pendle Borough Council on 01282 661166 or go to: www.pendle.gov.uk.
If you have a query about housing benefit, council tax benefit or the like, please go to www.pendle.gov.uk/benefits
If you need to report an Environmental Health issue report it via www.pendle.gov.uk/info/20005/your_environment
The Parish Council, each year, must request their funds to do all of the services, via the precept.
These are the photo's that were taken at the re-opening of the Victorian Pissoir on 30th April 218.
On behalf of Trawden Forest Parish Council..... Thank you to David and Barbara Whalley - the Mayor and Mayoress - for attending the opening and cutting the ribbon.
Thank you to Sarah Cockburn-Price, Paul White and Margaret Foxley, the Borough Councillors for funding part of the renovation project.
Thank you to Martin and Jacquie Watson and Keiron Melling from Marlyn Engineering for completing the work.
Thank you to Craig Smith for taking up the old cracked concrete floor and replacing it with the black limestone flags.
Thank you to Gillian Greenwood for taking the photo's.
We have already received some lovely messages saying how good it looks and that people are glad that it has reopened.
Sections of the boundary wall on Skipton Road have been falling down for quite some time now, and at the end of last year (2017), quite a large section fell into the road.
With the support of our County Councillor, the wall was repaired on 12th April 2018, and as you can see, it looks much better and more safe than in recent years.
This issue has happened again, at the end of July 2023. We have received confirmation that the wall is the responsibility of Lancashire County Council and works are being planned.
Following on from the decision from an independant report which stated that the existing 'Cotton Trees' located across from LBS and Trawden Road, were dangerous and had to be removed, yesterday (28th November 2016) replacement trees were planted.
Anne and Geoff Wolfenden, the owners of LBS and the land where the trees were located, purchased 5 replacement specimens to be planted along the side of the river around the Cotton Tree bend. 3 trees were removed, which are thought to be almost 200 years old. They kindly invited Trawden Parish Council, the Ward Councillors and the local press to attend the replanting.
Michael Crawshaw took the Councillors to the area of planting from his farm with his quad bike and sheep trailer.
We were able to use the Trawden Spade which is kept at Nelson Town Hall, for this planting which was an honor, as it was first presented to the Village when the first sod was cut for the light railway at Cotton Tree.
We hope that these trees, which are very rare, will last as long as their predecessors.
There will be a full report in the Colne Times.
Lancashire County Council have launched a flooding awareness campaign today. The campaign aims to help inform residents about their role during severe weather and seeks to contribute to an overall increased level of awareness, preparedness and resilience in the event of future floods.
The campaign messages focus on the fact that, although flooding can never be totally prevented, the impact to people and property can usually be reduced. It promotes self-help messages for those members of the public who have been affected by flooding in the past and those who could be affected in the future.
It also encourages householders and businesses to be more prepared for floods that may occur in the future. They aim for it to help manage expectations around surface water flooding, while contributing to and reinforcing the work all agencies have been doing in some way to increase the level of community resilience in relation to both property level flooding and surface water flooding.
Please visit www.lancashire.gov.uk/flooding where you will find information, advice and short animations designed to help people prepare for and deal with flooding.
