Ulverston Place Vision and Place Plan workshop

19 May @ 6:00 pm

Ulverston War Memorial

Your opportunity to tell us about Ulverston. Join one of our ‘virtual’ workshops to have your say!

Ulverston Town Team are working to develop a place vision for Ulverston. This will help us:

• Attract new businesses to our towns and town centres.
• Increase and retain our working age population.
• Raise the standard of the physical environment in our towns and town centres.
• Increase the number of people living in our towns and town centres.
• Deliver new jobs and opportunities for economic and social participation.
• Increase the number of visitors who spend time and money in our towns and town centres.

We want to use the new place vision to build local pride and confidence in our great town, and to help us further develop Ulverston as we reignite our economy post coronavirus. We want to hear what makes you proud about Ulverston, how you feel about the area and how you might like it to develop in the future. With these ‘virtual’ workshops, we are seeking your insight, thoughts and knowledge to help shape a powerful vision for Ulverston.

We will be hosting two ‘virtual’ workshops using the Zoom platform so if you would like to get involved, please register below and joining instructions with further information will follow ahead of the session.

An alternative workshop is available at 9am on the 20th May. See the Events Calendar to book.

Kings Head Bowling Club

The Kings Head Bowling Club is now open for the season. Subscriptions are due from current members; the annual subs are £25 per person. We are also actively recruiting new members.
 
You should contact the club secretary, Gordon, on 07887593773 or chairman, Bill, on 07813446977 for an application form. Subscriptions can be made under ‘gift aid’ to help the club.

Drop in sessions will be available shortly at £5 per head with bowls provided.

We are trying to sort the competition teams for the season as leagues should restart in June.
 

Please bear in mind that entry is through The Kings Head pub and we must observe the current covid rules. We are seeking work teams to spruce up the Green for the season, so if you have green fingers or can wield a paint brush let us know.

The future of the Club is still uncertain as the Brewery have yet to decide on whether to renew the lease or what the terms will be. We must increase membership and make big strides this year to show them what is possible in the future.

Don’t miss the popular Walking Festival, Lantern Festival, Dickensian Festival, International Music Festival, Retro Rendezvous, CAMRA Beer Festival, and Another Fine Fest (celebrating Stan Laurel’s birthday).

Ulverston sits at the head of the Furness Peninsula, between the expansive sands of Morecambe Bay, and the breathtaking mountainous landscapes of the Lake District National Park. In the thriving town centre you’ll find a healthy range of well-stocked small independent shops. You can walk from the town into quiet countryside within a few minutes. Coniston and Windermere are just a short drive away. Visit Ulverston for fun and pleasure, and to experience the close connection between the town’s people, it’s heritage, and the beautiful natural environment.
