Due to recent resignations two vacancies exist on council. These vacancies will be filled by Co-Option if an election is not triggered. Any interested parties should let the clerk know of their wish to be considered, in writing or by email. A CV is not needed but a short pen picture of yourself would aid council greatly.

Council has seen several complaints on local Facebook sites about people - described as lazy on one site, which is well stated - not picking up their animals poo, and in particular complaining about the road joining Longroyd and Rostle Top.
Earby Town Council would wish to remind any persons whose property, residence or business, was affected by flood water caused by Storm Eva over the Christmas period is eligible for a £500 one off payment.
Pendle Borough Council state that they are aware of most of the properties involved and payments could be made as early as this coming week.
The Council gives a big well done to Earby as a whole as the residents have shown that the community spirit is alive and well and thriving in the town.
The response has been immense from young, old and in the middle alike and is good to see.
No one could have forecast how bad things were to become but reaction to it all round was great.
