    South Lakes MP Tim Farron is urging the public to make their voices heard at a public consultation this Thursday about the future of Kendal's mental health ward.

    It will take place on Thursday 30th June, between 1-7pm at South Lakes Foyer, Yard 95, Stricklandgate, Kendal, LA9 4RA.

    The Kentmere mental health ward was originally due to be closed at the end of June. Following a huge campaign by Tim and local residents, this decision was put on hold while further consultation takes place. A final decision about the future of the ward will take place at the end of the summer.

    The government's flagship scheme is failing to make home insurance affordable for flood victims, according to South Lakes MP Tim Farron.

    A number of constituents have contacted Tim about huge increases in insurance premiums this year, following the effects of flooding last winter. It had been hoped that the government's Flood Re scheme would help to ensure affordable premiums for residents in high-risk properties, but this appears not to be the case.
