Community Minibus Restarts – Friday 10th July 2020

Please note that the Community Wheels Friday minibus service will restart on Friday the 10th July. Covid-19 precautions will be in place on board which means that places will be limited at first.

The service runs from Appleby, Great Asby, Ormside, then to Warcop and Sandford before returning to Appleby to connect with the 10:00 563 Stagecoach bus to Penrith. The other route covers Appleby, Dufton, Silverband, Milburn, Long Marton and back to Appleby.

You need to sign up to join the scheme and obtain a pre-payment card. Details of routes and times are on the posters at the Warcop and Sandford bus stops, or phone 01228 226428 to join the scheme.

 

 

Warcop Parish Hall Re-opening

The Trustees of the Parish Hall have agreed to have a limited re-opening of the hall from the week beginning the 13th July. Only a few groups will be able to use the hall at first, such as the Tuesday Drama group, the Friday morning Art class (from 7th August) and the Post Office at a new time and day of Tuesday afternoon, 1-2 pm. The kitchen will not be available initially as Trustees have to ensure that the hall is Covid-safe and all necessary risk assessment have been carried out. We hope to gradually expand the number of users and activities in the coming weeks. No indoor exercise classes are permitted at the moment.

In the light of recently updated government guidance, Trustees are currently considering allowing some sport and exercise classes to re-start from September. These include Taekwondo, Table Tennis, Extend Exercise and Bat & Chat and strict Covid-secure measures will be in place.
