Stalmine-with-Staynall Parish Council news
Wardleys Lane in Stalmine will shut on February 24 until March 3 for cable installation works.
Cllr Andrew Haydock has resigned, leaving a vacancy on the parish council. After informing Wyre Council, the Parish Council advertised the vacancy by issuing a formal notice locally (see noticeboard at junction of Smithy Lane and A588). If no-one calls for an election, the Parish Council will be required to fill the vacancy by co-option. This means the Council will advertise the vacancy and seek volunteers.
Councillors contribute to the work of the Council by having a say about the things they care about; putting forward ideas for better services; responding to the needs and views of their residents; seeking the best outcomes for local issues; getting involved in decision making by voting and accepting the corporate view of the Council. The Council usually meets on the second Tuesday evening every month with meetings normally lasting about one hour. If you are interested and would like to find out more, why not contact one of the parish councillors whose details are shown below or, alternatively, contact the Clerk by one of the methods shown below.
A bird survey has been undertaken in Stalmine wood that has identified a number of specie. Bird boxes are currently being painted by children at the school and will be put up once the weather permits access. Two owl nesting boxes are also being made. A survey of small mammals is planned for April.
