GOOD NEWS: 25th September

Another week and another round-up of just some of things we think you'd like to hear about ...


We had a smashing morning at Fleetwood Museum on Monday. A small group of local residents from the ANON art group were able to spend a couple of hours sketching, and just as importantly chatting, together in the boathouse with The Harriet as their inspiration.

Our thanks to Ben at the Museum for his hospitality and the group will be continuing, safely and responsibly, in future weeks within the venue’s COVID health & safety policy.


Numbers are limited but there are more places available for Fleetwood residents to join the group in the weeks ahead. Email listening@healthierfleetwood.co.uk if you would like to come along to the sessions..

Regenda Homes wants to hear from local residents and members of the community about their plans for the redevelopment of the West View estate.


Following extensive consultation last year and with face-to-face meetings restricted, this latest round of feedback is being gathered by an on-line survey.


Your views are important and will support an exciting vision for the estate - read more about Regenda’s progress and contribute to the survey until Monday 28th September.

The 'Orange Button Community Scheme' is there for people having thoughts of suicide, or who are worried about a friend or family member.


When you see someone wearing a distinctive orange badge, you can ask them for information and support.


If you would like to make a difference in your community by becoming an orange button holder further information is available on Healthier Lancashire & South Cumbria's website.

Healthier Fleetwood has worked closely with Lancashire Adult Learning to pass on information or courses and qualifications for residents aged 19 and over.


Although how people study is changing, there's still a wide range of opportunities in the Autumn Guide. 


Visit the Lancashire Adult Learning website for details of the courses on offer.

Finally please take a couple of minutes to watch a video from Fleetwood Beach Wheelchairs that sums up why this service is already making a difference to so many people.


Further information is available on the website and you can also make a donation to support the charity on their Just Giving page.


Until the next time ... Take Care and Stay Safe.
