STORTH School parents, teachers and friends are planning a 110-mile run around Morecambe Bay on September 28. The run is planned to take 24 hours and is to raise funds for a new classroom. In 2014, the school had 28 pupils and since then it has grown to 71. In order to maintain the high standards a new classroom needs to be build, though they can only do this with donations and with the active participation of the fundraising events. Sponsor the runners in this event and support the school on the crowdfunding page at

THE annual heritage open days offer members of the public to explore a diverse range of historical sites around the country which they would not normally have access to. To celebrate this, textile artist Stella Adams-Schofield will host a drop-in workshop at Heron Corn Mill, Beetham, as part of its ‘Flax to Linen’ project on September 15 (1pm-4pm). You will learn about the processes flax plants must go through to release the fibres ready for spinning into linen yarn. Also, you will learn about the traditional tools which were used and have the chance to try each of the processes for yourself. Entry to this event is free and refreshments will be available from the barn.
