The Parish Hall trustees are keen to re-establish a regular badminton club at Warcop Parish Hall. We have all the equipment, posts, nets shuttlecocks and racquets and a brilliant court in a high hall with excellent lighting.

All we need now is someone to get it going!  The key requirements are enthusiasm and organization skills. We’d like to see a club that caters for all ages and abilities. Times available include some evenings and weekends.

If you think you can help with this, please contact David Keetley on 41390 to discuss further.

New 563 Appleby to Penrith Bus Service – Starts 4th September

From the 4th September, a new 563 bus service will operate between Appleby and Penrith, Monday to Friday, three times a day, off-peak. This service will be run by Stagecoach and a timetable is attached below. You might be able to arrange a lift to connect with the service at Appleby, or alternatively you can use the Rural Wheels scheme run by Cumbria County Council. Phone 01228 226 428 for further information and see poster below.

The Friends of Eden Transport Group, of which Warcop Parish Council is represented, is exploring the possibility of running a minibus between Kirkby Stephen, Brough, Warcop, Sandford and Appleby to help people in the Upper Eden Valley to link in to the new service, even if this is not every day of the week. It cannot operate on a Tuesday as the Classic Coach 574 service between Kirkby Stephen and Penrith will continue to operate. We will keep you informed if any progress is made on this link route.

New Milk Delivery for Warcop!

Following the end of Paul Jackson’s milk delivery service, a new provider has come forward to operate the round in a similar way to the previous service. Neil and Dee Veitch will start deliveries to Warcop on Monday, 6th February and every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday thereafter.

Many people have already contacted them to ensure that they receive their milk delivery, but if you haven’t yet done so (and this includes Warcop, Bleatarn and Sandford residents,) then please do so as soon as possible. Tell other people about it too!

Telephone contact details are: 017683 71375 or 07590 016604

New Weekly Bus Service 574

Residents will be pleased to know that a new weekly bus service on Tuesdays between Kirkby Stephen and Penrith is to start operation on Tuesday 31st January. A timetable link is attached below. As yet, we have no information on costs.

It is hoped that lots of people will use the new service as this will only help the case for a more comprehensive service by another operator which is still being explored.
