Fylde Foodbank

Today in Fylde there are families struggling to put food on the table.

This may be due to low incomes, an unexpected bill, or a sudden crisis such as redundancy or benefit delay.

Fylde Foodbank provides emergency food and support to local people in crisis.

Fylde Foodbank is part of the The Trussell Trust’s UK-wide foodbank network.

How does a foodbank work?

Step 1 : Non-perishable food is donated by the public

Step 2 : Volunteers sort and pack food into emergency food boxes

Step 3 : Frontline care workers give foodbank vouchers to people in crisis

Step 4 : Foodbank vouchers are exchanged for 3 days of food at a foodbank

Step 5 : Foodbanks take time to listen and signpost clients to further support channels

What sort of food does Foodbank need?

UHT (“long life”) mile or powdered milk
Fruit juice (“long life” in cartons)
Pasta sauces
Tinned sponge pudding
Tinned tomatoes
Tinned rice pudding
Tea bags and instant coffee

St Anne’s Library

The Carnegie Library is in Lytham St Anne’s, Lancashire, England. The foundation stone of St. Anne’s Library was laid in August 1904 and the building was officially opened on 10 January 1906. The land was given by the St. Anne’s-on-the-Sea Land and Building Company and Andrew Carnegie, an American philanthropist, paid for the building itself. This was the first Library in the town. It was designed by local resident John Dent Harker. The building was extended in 1932.

The library was administered by the St Anne’s-on-the-Sea Urban District until 1922 when the Urban District Council amalgamated with Lytham U.D.C. to form the municipal borough of Lytham St. Anne’s. In 1974 the Library Service was taken over by Lancashire County Council and became the District Central Library of Fylde District.

St Anne’s On Sea In Bloom

St. Anne’s on the Sea In Bloom is made up of volunteers and representatives from various groups within St. Anne’s and has strived to involve as many like-minded people as possible.

This has resulted in a team made up of organisations from the local community, working together to improve the town. Groups such as The Ormerod Trust, Blackpool & Fylde Rail Users Association, the Chamber of Trade, St Anne’s Rotary, Fylde Borough Council and St Anne’s Town Council are all involved in the group.

St. Anne’s on the Sea In Bloom has a committee and is a fully constituted organisation. Meetings are held monthly during the summer months and also on an ad-hoc basis. Volunteers are always welcome.

Some of St. Anne’s On Sea In Bloom’s activities and projects include:

Promoting and organising ‘Best Front Garden’ competition
Community projects such as the Blundell Road allotment site
Working with schools to improve eco-awareness
Participation in the annual North West In Bloom competition
Working with ‘Friends Of…’ groups representing local parks and gardens

Whilst the In Bloom group has had considerable success in the annual North West In Bloom competition, our aim is simply ‘To make St. Anne’s On the Sea a better place to be’.

To this end we are eager to grow our team and allow for both greater success in the competition and to provide floral displays and associated improvements within our lovely town. New volunteers would be involved in such work as planting, watering, deadheading and weeding. Your support would be entirely self-pacing – you do as much or as little as you like.

St Anne’s In Bloom have the following opportunities for anyone who would like to help with our work in the town.

Tuesday afternoons for the summer – help with planting and maintaining the display in the town centre and Alexandria Drive, and Headroom Gate

Thursday afternoons – Gardening group on the Promenade by the Train Cafe

Friday mornings – Gardening group at the Peace and Happiness Gardens

Sunday morning – Nursery work at the allotment has one vacancy

Can you drive a trailer? We also need someone who can drive a trailer to help with our operations. Petrol costs are covered

Can you help with heavy lifting on occasions?

Can you fix things? For example, there are fences or paving that needs fixing at our allotment.

Can you help with our social media? We have a Facebook page and website but our dedicated member of the committee needs some support who knows how do this.

If you would like more information or if you would like to get involved, please contact Fiona Boismaison on 01253 724310.

There is also a website for the group: http://www.stannesinbloom.com

St. Anne’s Enterprise Partnership

The St. Anne’s Enterprise Partnership (STEP) was formed in 2015 and launched in 2017 by traders and businesses in the town with the aim to improve all aspects of St. Anne’s. This was achieved via the formation of the town’s CCT (Coastal Community Team) which lasted 3 years until the Government disbanded the project. In 2019 STEP became independent of the Town Council, but continues to be supported by them.
As a partnership their aim is to set the highest standards possible for this town. The partnership is a coordinating body that will pool resources, to empower members, with the right partners, to make things happen.
Their plan is:

to pursue a regular program of activities and events in the town.

to achieve the highest quality and professionalism across the hotel and accommodations sectors.
to promote the town which is a jewel on the Fylde Coast.
to ensure that the town has an exemplary respect for its architecture and natural heritage.
