Application Bentham Calendar 2022

Bentham Town Council try to help sell the calendar but the overall responsibility of selling the calendar rests with the successful applicant,

For our July walks we are reverting to meeting at Lairgill, enabling car-sharing to take place again for those who wish to.
The current guidelines are that masks should be worn and windows open.
We will meet there for 9.30am unless stated otherwise. Booking is no longer required in advance, but a list of walkers will be taken at the start of each walk by the walk leader.

The first, on Thursday 1st of July is a 5 mile circular, Kirkby Lonsdale to Whittingham.
Parking at Devil's Bridge and led by Alison and Colin 07854789311
We'll meet by the far side of the bridge, near to where the bikers park. We walk across fields to Low Biggins, then down to Sellet Mill farm & hall via tracks & footpaths. There is then a short section on a lane down to Whittington, where we walk through the churchyard & across parkland to exit by the gate house of Whittington Hall. At the end of this lane we turn left onto the bank of the River Lune & follow the river bank upstream back to Devil's Bridge. It may be that a different walk of the same distance may be substituted, starting at the same place, but going to Casterton.

We meet at Bentham Bridge at 6pm on Wed 7th of July for this short evening walk of 4.5 miles in familiar territory, on field paths, tracks and open moor.
It will include the path up the valley of Branstone Beck, the steep steps that cross the valley of Burbles Gill and the wooded path downhill alongside Moulter Beck. Susan Badley 62502.

On  Friday the 16th of July Kate 51402 will take us to look for prehistoric cup marks and "Harry Horse" on the slopes of Ingleborough. Parking in Clapham, we walk along Clapham Old Road to Newby Cote. Taking the lane to the right onto the Ingleborough path it's steadily uphill for a while. After passing a small scar, we'll look for the cup marks and "Harry Horse". Then, heading across the moor to the Boundary Stone on Grey Scars, the next aim is the Cold Cotes to Ingleborough path which we follow downhill. Shortly after the first Cold Cotes buildings, footpaths take us to Newby, then Laithbutts Lane and back to Clapham.

David Longton 61838 leads the last walk on Saturday 31st of July, the Ward Stone Walk of 11 miles, starting from the large free car park by Jubilee Tower on the Quernmore to Abbeystead road. Our walk then goes down to Higher Lee Farm where we pick up a series of tracks which take us via a shooters' luncheon hut and Rugged Crag to Ward Stone (the highest point in Bowland). Here we take the rough and in places boggy permitted path until we come to a track where we turn right and follow it as far as a disused quarry where there are three Andy Goldsworthy monoliths to view. From there we visit Clougha Pike before heading towards Grit Fell but turning down the boggy track past the shooters pile back to the car park. Note: As some of this walk is on open access ground which is designated as a grouse moor no dogs will be allowed, sorry.

The first August walk is an evening walk of about 4.5 miles, starting from Clapham Station at 6pm on Tuesday 3rd.

From Bentham Surgery:
If you receive an invite for a Covid vaccination via letter- this has not come from us. SML Covid
You can follow the instructions on the letter and book a vaccine at one of the vaccination sites
on offer and we understand these are in Lancaster, Morecambe or Kendal.
Please do not ring the surgery to book from a letter invite.
These letters seem to be going out from a central source and we have not been informed who these are going out to.
All the invites from us at the surgery will be via a text or a phone call and the appointment will be in Kirkby Lonsdale.
If you have received a letter but wish to attend Kirkby instead, you will need to wait we have invited you, but again please do not ring the surgery to enquire when this may be. We WILL contact you as soon as we can.
We are currently awaiting an allocation of vaccines to enable us to continue booking 1st vaccines, but have not yet been told when this may be. Thank you for your patience.

Bentham Town Council has published a Community Emergency Plan.
it will identify procedures to be adopted in the event of a major incident in Bentham.
What is needed in any emergency situation is knowledge of the locality and local people.
Emergency plans work best when they make use of existing organisations and local knowledge.
