CARTMEL FISH SLABS AND PINNACLE RESTORATION – UPDATE FROM THE PARISH COUNCIL

COMMUNITIES should be vigilant following spate of burglaries in South Lakeland
Detectives are continuing to investigate a series of burglaries in the South Lakes area of Cumbria.
Over the weekend of the 6 - 7 May 2023 there have been reported burglaries in the Allithwaite and Flookburgh areas. The offences are believed to have happened overnight.
It is believed the suspects are targeting addresses whilst residents are away from the house. The suspects will usually force entry to rear doors and windows before entering the houses and stealing jewellery and cash.
Police are appealing for residents in the areas of Allithwaite and Flookburgh who have any CCTV, doorbell camera or vehicle dash-camera footage from 6 - 7 May 2023, to contact police.
You can report online at //www.cumbria.police.uk/report-it quoting log 62 of 8 May 2023.
You can also phone on 101.
Alternatively, you can contact Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
Police would like to remind residents to be vigilant and ensure when they leave their houses to lock all doors and windows, install CCTV or video doorbells if possible and leave lights on where they can.
Patrols are being increased across south Lakeland and officers are taking measures to deter offenders and help prevent further burglaries. ... See MoreSee Less

IMPORTANT INFORMATION - Cartmel Support Network (CARTNET) have received two separate reports of young males walking around Cartmel village from door-to-door trying to sell goods and being persistent/aggressive when their offer is declined. They have been reported to Cumbria Constabulary 101 who already had received reports/complaints from Allithwaite.
At least two men have been seen and seem to be in their twenties with dark short hair and clean shaven. They appear to be around 5ft 9ins in height, one is slim and the other a bit more heavily built. They are dressed in dark clothing and carrying a large holdall/rucksack. They claim to be on an offender rehabilitation scheme (unlikely to be true) and might try to show some kind of pass or ID.
Can you please be alert to their possible presence in your area and (if possible) advise vulnerable residents not to open their doors to them? Please let this page know if there are any further incidents or pass the information directly to 101 (or 999 if there is an emergency).
Thank you. ... See MoreSee Less

What a beautiful sunny start to the Easter break we've had today. ☀️
If you're lucky enough to be visiting Cartmel this week, you might like to join in the Easter Vigil at Cartmel Priory on Saturday 8th April at 8.30pm. It's the first official celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus where The Paschal Candle spreads light amongst those present. It's a highly symbolic, very moving service.
