Good News about the 95 Bus Service. The Parish Council are delighted that Cumbria County Council have managed to save most of the service in the Parish that was threatened with closure and provide a service to Talkin which has not had one in the past. However there are changes to the days the service will run; the route and times; and the fact it will (at the moment) only be term time. Please see attached timetable which is due to come into effect on 4th September 2018 – 18-09-04 TT Only.
Temporary Road Closure From 10 September 2018 – How Mill from a point adjacent to the property called “The Nook” extending northerly on the U1197 for 110m. The closure is to enable electricity main installation works and it is anticipated the works will take 4 weeks (but could be extended up to 18 months) – see attached Location Plan

Over 41 Parishioners attended AED Training Sessions held in Faugh, Hayton, and Corby Hill over the past couple of months. The volunteer trainer (Mike) has said how much he enjoyed the sessions. He found the trainees interested; willing to have “a go”; and capable – thank you to all those who attended; thank you to Mike for voluntarily giving of his time and expertise; and thank you to String of Horses for hosting the training session in Faugh.
Automated External Defibrillators (AED’s) It is with grateful thanks to Brampton League of Friends that the parish council can announce that two more AED’s and external cabinets have been purchased. The purchases have been fully funded by the Brampton League of Friends.
All the AED’s have now been registered with the Ambulance Service and are fully operational.
The locations are:
1. On the wall of the village hall at Talkin
2. On a pole at the Walnut Field, Hayton
3. On the wall of Steve Wilson, Butchers shop, Corby Hill
4. On the wall at Brackensgill, Hardbank
5. On the wall of the Village Hall, Heads Nook
6. On the wall at the String of Horses Inn, Faugh
7. On the wall next to noticeboard, Fenton
8. On the outside house wall of Woody Glen, How Mill
The cabinets are locked and you will need to telephone the emergency 999 number and speak to an operator who will give the code to access the cabinet. The AED can be used without Heartstart training as the machine gives automated instructions.
