Footpaths, Forthcoming Elections and Fortune Cookies

This first Barrow Voice for the new year is a bumper edition both in size and content.

Is The Slabs footpath under threat? Some of us remember Barrow Voice holding a vote on just this question some years ago.

Feelings ran high then on the subject of cycling and lighting and if you have an opinion we would like to hear from you.

Talking of voting, we highlight the forthcoming Parish Council elections in May. Do you have the time and energy to be a member of the team which makes decisions about our village? If you are not sure, we point out where you can find information about the commitment you would be making.

We have an impressive roundup of the activities of the Parish Plan action groups and find out what New Year means to Barrow’s Chinese families.There is even a recipe for fortune cookies.

On page 7 Arthur Gardner introduces a new guide which in the spirit of partnership with other village organisations we are happy to include in this issue.
