Thank you to Gabi Crossley who invited me to her mother and baby class last weekend.

Gabi is trying to provide free mother and baby classes but is finding it difficult to promote her events, if you think you can help or you know someone who would like to attend a class please take a look at Gabi’s website www.fit4alluk.info for more information.

On Saturday, the Vale of Lune RUFC hosted a WW1 commemoration, it was a poignant ceremony and a real privilege to have been invited, so, thank you to everyone at the Vale.

Last week, I presented a petition to the House of Commons on behalf of a group of Bare residents I met during my summer tour in July and August.

They are campaigning for traffic calming measures at the junction of Broadway and the prom, this is something I support 100 per cent.

The petition reads: “Declares that the Petitioners believe that there should be traffic calming measures introduced at the junction between Broadway and Marine Road East in Morecambe as the junction is dangerous and further that the Petitioners believe that this should be in the form of a roundabout.

“The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to encourage Lancashire County Council to take steps to support the residents in Morecambe and to ensure traffic calming measures are introduced at the junction between Broadway and Marine Road East.”

Well done to Wayne Hemingway and his team for arranging the ‘Vintage by the Sea’ festival in Morecambe this weekend. The event attracted huge crowds into Morecambe.

The sun was shining and the skies blue for when the RAF and Canadian Lancaster Bombers did a fly past over the Midland Hotel.
