South Lakeland MP Tim Farron is encouraging residents to make their voices heard in a public consultation about the future of Kendal's mental health ward.
The Partnership Trust will hold a public drop-in session to allow the views of local residents to be heard. It will take place on Thursday 30th June, between 1-7pm at South Lakes Foyer, Yard 95, Stricklandgate, Kendal, LA9 4RA.
South Lakeland MP Tim Farron made a pitch to faith communities in a speech last night, warning that Brexit would hit the poor hardest.
Addressing the Northern Archdeacon's Conference in Rydal last night, he said he wanted to stay in Europe not only as a Lib Dem but as a Christian, because Brexit was a war on the poor.
South Lakes MP Tim Farron visited Staveley Primary School on Friday to see the school's latest film project.
Tim met pupils involved in the school's Film Club and the Filmmaking Club. He watched two short films the students had made. One film about war linked interviews the students had done with war footage. The other was an animated film the students had created.
Health bosses have confirmed to South Lakes MP Tim Farron that they want to make the temporary changes to maternity services in Kendal permanent.
In a meeting with health bosses, Tim objected to these changes and the impact they would have on local women. Tim has now written to the county council committee which assesses healthcare changes, to urge them to call a halt to the changes.
Westmorland and Lonsdale MP Tim Farron joined with local activists on Saturday to campaign for Europe.
Tim and other volunteers spoke to the public about the upcoming referendum. The street stall was held in Kendal town centre.
Tim said: "On the 23rd June, we have a huge decision to make about our country's future. Not only are millions of jobs linked to our trade with the rest of the world - it is our place in the world that is at risk. A 'Remain' vote will show that we are an open-minded, outward-looking country, which will work alongside our neighbours to face the challenges of the 21st century. We cannot tackle climate change, cross-border policing or international terrorism alone. I am voting 'Remain' to give my children the best possible future."
