Due to changes to their private contract with Dallam School, the 531 Grange over Sands to Dallam will cease to operate Friday 18 September.
This change has however allowed Stagecoach to extend the 14:35 Cartmel to Kendal service, so that it will now run every Monday to Friday, rather than only in School Holidays, providing a useful additional journey where the Travellers Choice 532 is not running. This will start from 21st September.
Following a comprehensive review, Witherslack Hall School has made the decision to change its name.
The decision, which involved both staff and students, has been made based upon the significant changes that have recently taken place at the school and also the fact that, as a service, Special Educational Needs has changed markedly over recent years.
The perception that Special Educational Needs schools were for the ‘bad lads’ has long since gone and there is now a far greater appreciation of the complex needs which affect young people today.
Therefore, from the start of the new academic year the school will take the name of Oversands School. The official change over date was Monday August 10th and from then on you will notice small changes, such as new signage, the school website and, upon the start of the new term, new school uniforms.
The Mayor of Lancaster, Jon Barry, has chosen St. John’s Hospice as his charity of the year and he came up with the idea of doing a sponsored bike ride around the newly opened Morecambe Bay Cycle Way in one day towing his Mayoral Trailer – otherwise known as the “Mayormobile”.
The route should pass through Witherslack at around 12pm.
The timings are:
Depart Walney Island - 7am
Ulverston - 9am
Grange Over Sands -11.30am
Silverdale - 13.45 pm
Lancaster Millennium Bridge - 15.30pm
