make a clean
sweep of the towns streets
On Friday April 6th over thirty people from Egremont came together for a community litter pick.
The group were helped by members of the town council, Calderwood house , Works4you, Lengthsmen and a team from the CO-OP.
With litter pickers and bags in hand the group split into four teams tackling major litter grot spots.
After two hours work on a wonderful spring morning more than 90 bags were collected.
Egremont town council chair person Cllr Lena Hogg was overwhelmed by the response and congratulated all on their hard work.
The town council is having another community litter pick in June which will be bigger and involve students from Westlakes academy and the towns others schools. Hopefully the event will attract more people to take up the pickers and bring Egremonts streets a fresh and clean new life.
A clean sweep for Calderwood residents
28 March 2018
RESIDENTS of an Egremont hostel are now trained to prepare foods to professional standards.
Calderwood House residents have been provided with advice and guidance on how to keep their kitchen clean, and food preparation safe, free of charge by Copeland Borough Council.
The council has been working with residents to provide advice and guidance on how to prepare food properly, which will benefit the residents when they move into their own homes.
The Egremont hostel received a food hygiene rating of five, the highest standard of rating thanks to the residents’ knowledge of best practice and techniques.
As part of the training, the Council’s Environmental Health Team provided the charity with a handy guide which can be adapted by the hostel to suit the residents’ needs.
Martin Hart, Calderwood House resident, said: “I was a chef by trade attending French classical catering college, serving in the army for six years, based in Germany.
“I think the training provided by the Copeland Council team is really useful as I enjoy being in the kitchen.
Rachel Holliday, Director at Calderwood House, said: “Keeping our residents safe is at the heart of what we do.
“To be able to educate our residents to adapt good food hygiene practice will support them in their own home when they move on.
“It also ensures that we keep our Calderwood kitchen to a high standard so that everyone can feel confident to use our kitchen.”
“The fact we have had a five rating for the second year running demonstrates how much we value our facility.
“We want anyone who walks through the door to be confident that our kitchen is not just clean, but immaculate and we make sure food is handled correctly.
“Running a social enterprise is a thankless task at times and an expensive one. Copeland Borough Council are always on hand to lend their skills and time to help us to be the best we possibly can.
“The fact that the staff in the Environmental Health Department have taken their time to devise this fantastic training tool for us, free of charge, shows how much they really care about projects like ours.”
Mike Starkie, Mayor of Copeland, said: “We are immensely proud to be able to support organisations such as Calderwood House.
“The work they do is invaluable and we will support their efforts in any way we possibly can.
“It is a fantastic organisation providing vital services to those in need, and I commend them for all they have done and continue to do for their residents and the local community.”
Egremont firestation plaque unveiling
On Friday June 2nd Egremont town council chairpeson Lena Hogg and vice Chair Neil Ferguson attended the unveiling of the Egremont firestation memorial plaque.
Egremont firestation was founded in the mid 19th century and has had a diligent, vigilant and dedicated team of firemen ever since.
The firestation has undergone many changes since its founding but it has never had a a memorial plaque detailing the names of all those that have served the community so well over the time.
The memorial had been in the making for over 9yrs and needed the help of all past and present firepersons, sale of varoius items, many sponsored events, monies given by the local community and generous help from facebook users to identify personages of the numerous photos and lists.
The unveiling was also attended by the current and past firepersons, clergy, Cumbria fire service commander and many from the local community who were wowed by the plaque and the numerous photos and memorabilia from past eras.
