HERE are the latest announcements from our community news correspondent Maggie Stockdale for Underbarrow.

Unfortunately, due to continuing Covid restrictions, the Underbarrow and Bradleyfield Sports Day had to be cancelled.

This was very disappointing to the children and families who usually have a great day.

Underbarrow Marrow Day is usually held in September, but the committee has decided that this will not go ahead either this year in its traditional form due to uncertainty about Covid restrictions.

However, the Marrow Day Committee, led by Jenny Richardson and Stephen Carruthers, are pleased to announce that there will be a Duck Race in September, the date to be confirmed.

This is hoped to be a virtual event rather than a big public event, to keep Covid safe.

The usual thousand £1.00 tickets will be sold, with cash prizes, and they have already decided that all the proceeds will be sent to St Mary's Hospice at Ulverston who are in great need of our support to carry on their invaluable work with cancer patients.
