Following a meeting of the Community Flood Group in the Glenridding Village Hall on Thursday 25th Feb 2016 we are now in a position to confirm the current plans for the repairs to the Glenridding Beck wall above the bridge to the Village Hall. Outlines for these repairs are shown in the schematics accessible through the image below. Mayson Brothers have now started work on the Glenridding Beck Wall repairs. The work is expected to take up to 22 weeks. You can see this week’s plans and also access the Glenridding Beck webcam and a video from Mayson brothers using the links below.

Community Flood Group Action Plan

Greening Glenridding Campaign

In the run up to Easter some local volunteers organised a campaign to make Glenridding look a little more spring like. Thanks to some generous donations from Hayes Garden Centre in Ambleside and B&Q in Penrith as well as the efforts of many individuals both young and old, planters were put up around the village, and across the Parish in Patterdale and Hartsop.  They even planted up some of the dumpy bags used to shore up the beck wall. Many thanks to all those involved. Please click here to see more Photos from the Day.
