COMMUNITY NEWS / WHAT’S ON

The Arnside Broadsheet is celebrating its 40th Anniversary!
The Arnside Broadsheet started in January 1998 as a one-woman production and, thanks to that woman – Sheila Petersen – along with all the many volunteers who have helped over the past 40 years in various capacities, be it production, delivery or support, it continues to thrive and develop – this website being proof of its continued development. A very big ‘Thank You’ to all concerned.
 
Arnside Broadsheet needs your help!
Can you spare approximately one hour every few months to assist with the sorting and distribution of packs of Broadsheets to our team of distributers/ deliverers? Please call Ann Guy on 01524 761338  or e-mail arnsidebroadsheet@hotmail.co.uk for more information.
