RESIDENTS from Mirehouse and Corkickle are invited to discuss the results of a recent community consultation.

More than 100 residents from the area shared what mattered to them through a survey and a World Cafe event held in August.

An event will be held to discuss the findings of the consultation and the next steps on October 8 at St Benedict’s Rugby Club, Mirehouse, from 6pm until 8pm.

Thorough the consultation residents identified some of the things that were important to them as:

  • More activities for older teens
  • Eradicating litter problems
  • Increased bus services
  • More information on available services
  • Creating safer communities

The consultation was run by Well Whitehaven, a project designed to improve the lives of those living in the communities.

Emma Williamson, Well Whitehaven Officer, said: “There was a real passion for the Well Whitehaven team to work closely with residents and local service providers.

“This next event is about bringing all the issues mentioned within the consultation to the table, and work with the community to create opportunities and solutions led by the residents.”

The event will host partners from Copeland Borough Council, Cumbria County Council, Citizens Advice, Howgill Family Centre, Age UK, Home Group and Cumbria Constabulary.
