Several of the decorative Christmas Trees have been damaged by the recent high winds and storms. These have been taken down, where they had not already blown down, and Councillors Tennant and Horsfield are making repairs, where possible. The trees will be back in place as soon as they are ready.
The town took a big step forward today in preparing for the festive season. The trees and lights were put up into the brackets and they look good. They are bigger trees and lights and at 5ft show very well. The new lights in the trees on the bus station along with the welcome to Earby sign were also switched on and all in all it looks festive indeed.
A flood alert has just been issued by Lancashire County Council for Earby Beck.
The Tour of Britain is coming to Ribble Valley and Pendle in Lancashire. Stage Two will begin in Clitheroe town centre, completing a clockwise route via Nick O’Pendle, Longride, Dunsop Bridge and Slaidburn in the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
As many of you are aware these new decorations were installed recently and within a few hours they had been vandalised. They have now been repaired at an estimated additional cost of over £500. The police have been given a copy of the CCTV footage of the incident and are pursuing the matter.
The lower rooms of the Parish Rooms have been turned into the annual "Poppy Shop" for the last two weeks. As ever most of the hard work has been done by Councillor Vera Cocker supported by her loyal helpers. As well as selling all sorts of poppy related items the shop provides a brew and a biscuit for any and all.
