Following complaints from local residents, Cllr Ken Moss held a meeting with Headmaster Tim Mitchell regarding the situation and discussions were very productive. Mr Mitchell is now working with Rishton Area Council to alleviate the situation and has allocated funding for the creation of up to 20 new parking bays on school grounds. Costings are being finalised and work is expected to start in the near future.
Discussions are also taking place with local Councillors with the aim to create a completely new parking area within the school grounds. Funding is likely to be an issue but the scheme is now being actively pursued and updates will be provided when more information is known.

The firm is not registered with HBC for collection and requires a licence. The appropriate legal team is now investigating and action will be taken.
Residents must not leave items out on pavements or in back alleys for collection, this is illegal. Please ignore these leaflets as they are handing out bad advice to people and you may end up being prosecuted yourself for flytipping.
Residents are urged to pass this message on to their friends and families.

She said, "This money will allow us to buy new equipment and bicycles so that children of all ages can play, not just those who are the right age to use what little we had before. Promotion of our group around Rishton has boosted our numbers and we can now remain open so thank you once again."
In 2013, it looked as though the group would close due to dwindling numbers but renewed advertising online and a poster campaign has helped to secure its future. Irene is very pro-active in applying for grant money and has just secured a further £500 for garden work.
She said, "We have received a grant of £500 from Tesco charitable trust to make over a garden area at Primetime and we would appreciate being put in touch we anyone willing to help to clear away some of the existing plants ready to replant in the spring."
Local environmental group Prospects have been notified and it is hoped that a working group can be organised with volunteers very soon. Anyone wishing to contact Irene regarding her Pre-School group should email email@example.com

"The signs form part of our communication obligations under the Control of Major Accident Hazard Regulations 1999 (or COMAH for short). Our activities come under this legislation, which mainly applies to the chemical industry, because threshold quantities of certain dangerous substances identified in the Regulations are kept or used on our site. Under the COMAH Regulations we have a duty to contact everyone within a designated area around the site known as the ‘Public Information Zone’ (or PIZ), to explain what could happen in the unlikely event of a major accident at our Church site.
As part of this we periodically send out a community letter and a PIZ leaflet “Safety Advice for the Community” to all businesses and households within the PIZ (a copy is available on our website if you want to take a look – www.williamblythe.com).
At one of the regular Multi-Agency Emergency Planning Meetings, which we attend together with representatives from Lancashire County Council, Hyndburn Borough Council, the Health and safety Executive, the Environment Agency and the Emergency Services (i.e. police, fire and ambulance) it was pointed out that users of the canal and tow path may not have received this information as they do not reside in the PIZ. The signs were therefore erected on the advice of the Emergency Planning Unit of Lancashire County Council to provide information and advice to users of the canal and the tow path as to what to do in case of a major accident on our site."
