Letter from the Chair
After the last newsletter went out I received more feedback about the notice board than about anything I have been involved with since joining the association 6 years ago. Thank you to all who responded for getting involved. Most of the feedback was negative so after some discussion at our last committee meeting we decided to shelve the notice board scheme. This was a shame as we had already received a neighbourhood forum grant towards paying for it.
It was not just the lack of support for the idea which caused us to shelve the project; it was the negative reaction added to the fact that we are still very short of helpers to keep the association working properly. We are still short of a patch representative to cover some patches and we do not have a patch secretary to organise all the patches.
Given that we are struggling to cover the basic running of the association it did not seem wise to add to the association workload by installing a notice board which would need updating regularly.

Could you join the committee? Have you got time to help? The work is usually fun and it does not involve a huge time commitment – just 5 or 6 evenings a year.

We spent some time discussing the work which we had done on the shrubberies on Moorville Drive. This has really been a failure. I think the idea was good and initially the new shrubberies looked great. However the time that the council spends on the maintenance of the shrubberies on the estate is minimal and the soil in the beds is poor. This meant that they were soon full of weeds and looking terrible.

Our councillor Mrs Patricia Vasey agreed to look into the possibility of having the beds grassed over. We were delighted when this was achieved during July. We are sorry we were unable to consult you about this but having it done so quickly seemed too good an opportunity to miss!
I hope you agree that this has improved their appearance considerably. I wonder if this is the answer too to the problems we have with other beds around the estate, particularly the raised beds near the main entrance to the estate. Perhaps we should simply have them removed and replace with grass? What do you think?
Please let us know your thoughts a.rowell@orego.com


Andrew Rowell, Chair





Crossroads Care is the premier provider of respite care in their area and have a specialist team devoted to children's needs.

 We offer a high quality respite service to carers of all ages in their own homes designed with them to meet their personal requirements. We do this by taking over from the carer for agreed periods of time so that the carer can follow their own interests.

We aim to reduce stress in the families we support and help carers themselves to have the highest quality of life possible. Our professional carer support workers are all fully trained and we provide care throughout North Cumbria and are intending to extend our cover to a greater area of the county.

The Government says that Crossroads Care is excellent and over the past 5 years we consistently met or exceeded the government's standards. 

Crossroads Care National Audit Team (CROQUET) suggested that Crossroads Care Cumbria standards were very good. You can trust Crossroads Care.

We have finally reached the end of another busy school year and we would like to take the opportunity to thank the residents for their support and consideration over the year.

The friends of Kingmoor Nursery and Infant School held a very successful fund day on 2 July 2010 and raised the wonderful sum of around £1,200 for our school fund.

We held a very exciting enrichment week in June entitled ‘Every Picture tells a story’ which had a history, geography and art theme. We had a lot of interesting visitors during the week to work alongside the children and a great time was had by all.
Our temporary classroom leaves on 21st July and the ground will be reinstated as previously. We are hoping to have a garden in the area for the children to grow flowers and vegetables.
Our new adventure playground to be sited on the grassed area between the two schools will be installed in the holiday period. There will be a grand opening on Saturday 18th September 2010 when there will be inflatables, mini rides, a children’s entertainer and refreshments/BBQ. Please come along and join in the fun.
You may already have read in the media that following the consultation in March the County Council have decided not to build additional classrooms on both school sites.


Dear Residents

 

The end of the Summer Term was a key time for Kingmoor Juniors. We have ordered new furniture for all of the classrooms, and four classes are undergoing a complete overhaul. As part of this process, we liaised with the charitable organisation Life Care UK, in order to send all of our current furniture to a place where it could be re-used. All the furniture, along with a raft of computers and other goods was loaded onto the back of a 40ft lorry (see photo), and sent to a school in Kashmir, where it will be put to good use.


 

To celebrate the success of the music that the school is renowned for, we decided to record our very own CD. The CD, entitled "Our World", is the bringing together of a variety of pieces that we have worked on throughout the year both as a choir and as a whole school. The CD is on sale for £7.99, with the proceeds being split between the World Wildlife Fund, and for new musical instruments for school. The quality is quite simply outstanding. Copies can be ordered/collected through the school office on 01228 607561.

 

The schools are currently in the process of improving the play equipment on site. The grand opening day is on Saturday 18th September 2010 with a whole raft of activities planned. Keep the date free in your diaries!


 

As always, if there is anything that I can help with, do not hesitate to get in touch.

 

Yours sincerely



  

Mr. Andrew Cairns

Headteacher

Letter from America – can you help?
I have received the following email via our LHRA website.
I am Ray Beadling, (originally from Wallsend, but now living in Maine, USA. Some 35 years ago I was training as an SRN in Newcastle on Tyne, and lived in residence whilst doing so. Also with us at the time were a group of Lab Techs from Carlisle Cumberland Infirmary, and one of the girls was Janice Bilston (or Balston?) of 108 Lowry Hill Road. I appreciate the need for security but would be most grateful if you tell me anything of her whereabouts, e-mail address possibly???

Reason being I am in the midst of organising a reunion for all of the, then residents at the hospital and will be coming to the UK for Christmas.
Hoping you can shed some light. Grateful thanks. Ray Beadling RGN RMN
If you are Janice or know Janice and would like to contact Ray Beadling, please email me at jan.kitching@sky.com and I’ll pass on your message to Ray in America. Editor


Remember this a year ago?
Environment Agency take swift action against Carlisle abattoir

Environment Agency close Carlisle abattoir

The Environment Agency has today (24 August 2009) taken robust action to tackle noxious smells coming from an abattoir in Carlisle.  An enforcement notice has been issued to West Scottish Lamb Ltd, Brunthill Road Carlisle. The notice effectively suspends the company’s operations until they carry out works to resolve the current issues which have been causing odours in the local area.

The Environment Agency were made aware of the issue this morning, and has carried out an investigation into the cause of the incident.

Jon Mellor, Regulatory Officer said, “Following a number of complaints from local residents and businesses we have taken swift action, and have issued the company with an enforcement notice. The company must now ensure that it carries out the necessary repairs to resolve the situation, and ensure that this does not happen again. We will continue to monitor the situation to see if any further action is required. Our investigation into the incident will continue.”
To report an incident to the Environment Agency please call 0800 80 70 60.

One year on and the Residents’ Association has received complaints about exactly the same unpleasant experiences.


The Environment Agency stress how important it is for us to straight away report incidents to them. They will log the call and immediately pass it on to Penrith. If you see anything suspicious and can take a photograph please make it available to the EA to help them gather evidence.
The Environment Agency can and will take immediate action to stop any environmental violation.
If you think something is wrong or dangerous

please, please report incidents to

Environment Agency on 0800 807060
