These sessions are free and include tea and biscuits. They are led by trainers from Barclays Digital Eagles.

Lancaster City Council are tasked with providing a neighbourhood plan for villages in the Lune Valley. At the moment this is in the consultation stage and Whittington Parish Council have agreed that Arkholme, Whittington, and Gressingham would be in a stronger position if they worked together, rather than as individual communities.
There is a meeting in Arkholme Village Hall on Thursday 20th July at 8:00 pm, which is open to anyone who may be interested in what happens to our villages in the future.
Lancashire County Council has given notice of a road closure over the length of Hutton Roof Road. The closure will take place between the hours of 08:00 and 17:00 from 3rd July 2017 to 21st July 2017. The closure is to allow carriageway resurfacing work to be carried out.
The map of the road closure (which is poor quality) seems to indicate the stretch of road from the junction with Saddler Nook Lane and the County boundary.
