PREESALL TOWN COUNCIL NEWS
A date has been set for the planting of two trees at Knott End's Jubilee garden to mark the long service of two former Preesall town councillors.
The rowans, one red and the other yellow, in honour of Jean Mutch and Rosina Lawson, who were in office for a combined 77 years, will be installed on Saturday November 30, the Woodland Trust's tree charter day.
A time for the ceremony will be announced in due course.
Along with other councils, Preesall Town Council must submit its financial accounts for independent scrutiny by an external auditor. The council attaches great importance to running its financial affairs responsibly and transparently, so it is pleased to confirm that its accounts for the year ending March 31, 2019, have been confirmed to be in order.
At its meeting in November the council will begin to determine its budget for the financial year beginning next April. Organisations considering applying for a grant from the council are therefore advised to apply soon, so the council has an idea of what sums might be required for its grants programme. More information is available on the council's website.
This year's Remembrance ceremony will take place on Sunday, November 10 and parts of Lancaster Road will be closed between 10.45am and 11.30am that day for the civic procession. Lancaster Road will be shut at its junctions with Grasmere Avenue, Pilling Lane and Park Lane.
Preesall Town Council will meet next on Monday 14 October 2019 at the Youth and Community Centre on Lancaster Road, from 7pm. This is a public meeting and residents are welcome. An opportunity to raise matters is available.
