The "Roundhead" Village

 

SITUATED ON THE DUDDON ESTUARY, TO THE SOUTH OF THE LAKE DISTRICT NATIONAL PARK, KIRKBY IS A COLLECTION OF ATTRACTIVE HAMLETS  LYING ALONG SIDE THE A595, 

THE LONGEST ROAD IN THE COUNTY OF CUMBRIA

 

Kirkby residents who were actually born in the Parish of Kirkby Ireleth are given the name "ROUNDHEAD". 

This is taken from the practice in the slate quarries of rounding off the top of roofing slates. 

Some "ROUNDHEADS" refer to off comers as "SQUAREHEADS".

Soutergate Car Park - latest statement from the Parish Council.

"Work to resurface the Parish Council car park at Soutergate will take place on Monday 8th and Tuesday 9th July. During this time the car park will be closed to all vehicles. We ask that all vehicles be 

removed no later than Sunday 7th July. Any vehicle that remains on the car park will prevent these works and could lead to damage to such vehicles for which the Parish Council or its contractor cannot be 

held responsible. We will aim to put notices on all vehicles on the car park and post leaflets through all Soutergate residents' doors to remind people in the next few days."

Warm Space Soup Lunch

The last Soup Lunch for the time being was held on Thursday 14th March. It was attended by twenty people who enjoyed either chicken broth or carrot and bacon soup (or both!). 

Thanks are due to Alyson from the Commercial Inn for providing the excellent soups over the winter months. Also to those who took portions to people who were unable 

to attend. Finally thanks to the Kirkby In Need Charity for financing this project. It is hoped that the Soup Lunch will begin again in October under a new name "SOUPA THURSDAY".
