Free Vitamin Drops
05 August 2022

All families in Cumbria with children under the age of two are being encouraged to collect free vitamin drops for their children and apply for help with the cost of food and milk as part of the Healthy Start Scheme.

Families can collect 8 weeks' supply of children's vitamin drops from any of the community venues across the county listed here Healthy Start Scheme booklet (PDF 552KB).

Families with children aged between 2-4 years will be able to continue collecting the vitamin drops from the same venues if they are in receipt of a Healthy Start card.

Pregnant women and mothers with babies up to six months (if breastfeeding or dual feeding) are also entitled to collect free vitamins for themselves- these will initially be distributed by midwives and Health Visitors during their early visits.

To find out more about the Healthy Start card and how to apply please visit: Healthy Start website.

If anyone is struggling with the rise in the cost of living, visit cumbria.gov.uk/costofliving to find out how to access a range of advice and support.

Thanks for your continued support

Senior Community Friendship Club
25 January 2022

Dear Friends,

Happy New Year to all our friends in the Senior Community Friendship Club. We hope you had a festive Christmas and a peaceful new year.

Here is our winter edition of our online Friendship Club for you to enjoy. It is full of fun and interest and includes, of course, a special message from our very much loved PAT dog Pippa.

To access, please click on friendshipclub.org.uk and look for January 2022 update - enjoy.

Special in this edition is the ‘Memories to make you smile.’ If you have a memory that makes you smile, please just jot it down and send it in, it would be good to have a collection of memories as a regular feature.

Sadly Desmond Tutu died this December and this prompted a piece on prominent figures who have made the world a better place. Look in Tributes for Gandhi, Desmond Tutu, Mother Therese and Nelson Mandela.

There is music to sit and enjoy, Sing alongs with Rossendale Memory Choir, poetry from our talented Manchester writers with recitals from yet more gifted narrators and thoughtful prayers for our Christians, me being one of them.

Once again a very special thank you to all our contributors. We couldn’t produce these editions without you. If anyone would like to contribute in any way, please just drop us a line. We have contributors from as far south as the Cotswolds and as far north as Cumbria.

All our welcome and if you have any ideas on interesting content, don’t hesitate to get in touch at admin@friendshipclub.org.uk

Until the Spring edition, take care, stay safe and God bless.

Cheers Tricia

PCSO 5125 Paul Harris

Over the past month the Rural Officers have been supporting the current sheep worrying initiative and providing weatherproof posters to farmers across the area. We still have a small supply of these so anyone requiring any can contact 5125 Paul Harris.

Poaching has been on the increase over the past month. Please report any suspicious incidents.
Concerns regarding off road motorcycles have also continued and a number of warning letters have been sent to the owners of vans we believe have been involved in transporting the bikes.

Report  it in on 101 or email:  101emails@cumbria.police.uk
