GOOD NEWS: 14th August

Another week and another busy Newsletter. Once again we are pleased to pass on a few of the things we've heard about lately ... a treasured local venue is set to reopen, there's help for those looking into training and employment, residents taking the lead on health and wellbeing and a chance to acknowledge those who have made a valuable contribution to the Fleetwood community ...



A WELCOME RETURN FOR LIBRARY Great news that Fleetwood Library will be reopening on Wednesday 19th August. It will be a very different service to the one we are used to but still lovely to have this much-loved community asset available again. For the opening times and arrangements to book a visit please see the Lancashire County Council website.

HAPPY ART If you've discovered your creative side during lockdown Wyre Council is inviting residents to share their work as part of 'Happy Art'. It could be a painting, sketch, something in 3D or even an amazing cake you've baked ... just take a picture and send it to happyart@wyre.gov.uk. Full details are on the Wyre Council website



'VISIT' THE VIRTUAL FESTIVAL Among the many events cancelled this year is the Fylde Coast Food & Drink Festival so organisers at Marine Hall have come up with an on-line version this weekend (15th & 16th August).

Until the next time, take care and stay safe.

As an individual's confidence grows they take more control of their own wellbeing and an active role in the decisions that affect them. We are independent of but work in close partnership with the many organisations supporting the community.
