The Remembrance Service has, over the years, increased in numbers attending at the Memorial. For the organisers it was particularly pleasing to see so many young people attending and laying wreaths.

In Flanders Fields
In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the Crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago We live, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were Loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields.
Take up your quarrel with the foe; To you from failing hands we throw The torch be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields. John Macrae

"I should like to thank all those people who have ACTUALLY DONE ALL THE HARD WORK to ensure the future of Kirkham Baths. Thanks to the residents of Kirkham, Wesham and the rural Fylde for their support at all times. Tribute must be made to the members of the Rural Splash group, they are the real reason that the Baths have been saved, they have worked tirelessly since March last year to draw up a workable business plan, they have pioneered the way forward by approaching the Y.M.C.A. with a view to joint working and they have found the way to provide swimming at a much reduced price.
Thank you also to Clare Platt and John Cronin for their recent work in facilitating the deal and all the staff of Kirkham Baths for their hard work and loyalty.
We move forward to a hopefully successful future, we will continue to do all we can to continue to provide leisure services in the rural area and hopefully improve on our present services."

Cllr Oades also commented that the County Council has added an extra £5.746 million in the 2008/09 year with a further £5.218 million allocated for the following two years.

An independent observers viewpoint can be read by clicking here.
Wesham Mayor Cllr Michael Devaney welcomed over 150 residents to a packed hall to air their views. The Mayor introduced the Town Council and invited Wesham Cllr, Linda Nulty, also a FBC Development Control Committee member, to update the meeting. Cllr Nulty explained the current policies and procedures that would be examined by the DC committee when the final decision is taken by Fylde Borough Council. Cllr Alan Clayton outlined the steps that the Town Council had taken since being aware of the planning application submitted by Metacre Ltd. At two recent previous meetings, one arranged by the Town Council and one by Metacre Ltd, the message from residents has been a resounding “NO SUPPORT” for the development.The public were then invited to make their feelings known. Concern was expressed about many issues including; the category of land, currently grade 1-2 agricultural; drainage; the impact on the biological heritage site; safe access and egress to the site etc. There was no support expressed by any person.
A resident stated “a lot of very useful and important points were raised. One was to stress the importance of actually writing to the FBC Development Control Committee”. A full list of address details can also be viewed on the Town Council Notice Board (at the old fire station) and on the Community Centre Notice Board.
It was stressed the content of these correspondences should be strictly factual based on the current planning policies as outlined by Cllr Nulty . Emotive pleas are often disregarded if there are no actual policy related points included.
The meeting concluded by inviting ‘volunteers’ to form a separate group to investigate in more depth the support that may be given from bodies such as The National Trust; Environmental Services; Wildlife Trusts and bird Clubs etc. Some 24 people came forward!
The Town Council will, at the meeting to be held on Tuesday 27th January, be discussing their submission to Fylde Borough Council Development Control Committee, and also following up the formation of an additional group from the volunteers.
