Shap Chippy Van Starts Tuesday 13th October!

Shap Chippy are planning to start a weekly fish & chip service from their mobile van which will be sited at Warcop Parish Hall car park every TUESDAY evening from 4:30 -7 pm. There will be a pre-booking system and it is hoped that the new scheme will start on the 13th October. This will be a great boost for everyone after the lockdown period and we expect residents will help collect meals for neighbours who can’t drive so that they don’t miss out!

Make sure that you spread the word!

Please check here for further details when we receive them and also look out for leaflets and posters.

Sign up for Parish Information!

Warcop Parish Council is trying to set up a parish-wide mailing list to enable it to send relevant information to the 220 households that make up the parish in Bleatarn, Sandford, Warcop and part of Coupland Beck. If you click on any page after the Home Page on our website, you will see a simple sign-up form. You can choose how to receive information and you can opt out whenever you like.

The idea is to tell you about the things the Parish Council is working on as well as telling you about its meetings and the minutes. We will also seek your opinion on issues from time to time – for example, we are currently meeting with Highways England to try and persuade them to create a northerly route for the dualled A66 that takes it over MOD land and further away from Warcop and nearby properties.

We would also like to tell you about events, classes or activities at the Parish Hall, as well as any developments the trustees are working on. For example, they have recently been successful in securing funding to build an extension to our store rooms as we do not have enough space, which is due to the hall’s success.

The whole point is to keep you – the nearly 600 residents of our parish – as fully up to date as possible, so that you feel informed and involved in our community.

Please sign up as soon as possible, so that we can build up a really good number of contacts, then we will begin to send out occasional emails.

Thank you,

David Keetley

Chair, Warcop Parish Council

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.

Halloween Dance with Covernote Cancelled – Saturday 19th October

Unfortunately, the planned Halloween dance and supper on Saturday 19th October has had to be cancelled because of low ticket sales. We hope that another similar dance will be scheduled some time in the New Year.

We’re sorry about this as it is always a great night with excellent music, lovely food and good company.

New Chairs for the Hall

Local residents will be relieved and pleased to hear that Warcop Parish Hall has now taken delivery of 120 brand new chairs which are chrome in colour and have blue cushions and backing. This will ensure that future functions at the hall will be a far more comfortable affair – and especially our monthly Remote Cinema nights!

Pictures to follow…

Some of the old grey plastic chairs have been given to Musgrave Village Hall and Warcop Methodist Chapel. There are about 60 remaining chairs in storage which are available to any local groups who might need them.

Great North Air Ambulance Collection – Record Total!

Thank you so much to everyone who brought so many bags to the hall for our December bag collection to support the Great North Air Ambulance. They inform us that our bags weighed 690 kilograms which translated into £759 for their charity. This is the highest amount we have ever raised for them so thank you again. We hope many of you also called into the Coffee Morning and had a bacon roll!

Our next collection will be in the summer of 2019, probably in July, so keep some bags handy ready to fill them again!
