Message in a Bottle

This simple but effective scheme provides vulnerable people or people living on their own with vital life saving information in a common place, the fridge, where it can easily be found in the event of an emergency.

Two labels, one on the inside of the front door and the other on the fridge, alerts the Emergency Services that this information is available. The information stored in this readily identifiable container includes personal details, doctor’s name and telephone number, a brief description of any medical conditions, allergies, family contact details and Repeat Prescription location details for current medication information.

Lions in the  Silverdale Trees

Members of Newcastle Lions Club joined with children from St Lukes and Silverdale primary schools to plant over 400 sapling trees on the Silverdale Community Country Park.

The trees are part of the Woodland Trust ”More Trees More Good” initiative and are part of the growing parkland that now covers a majority of the former Silverdale Colliery site.

Newcastle Lions President David Slack commented “ There are 420 trees being planted, which will provide year round colour, food and cover for the wildlife. The youngsters taking part today will be able to watch the area mature in their lifetime in the knowledge that they helped in planting the trees”

The trees will be maintained and monitored by Groundwork, West Midlands as part of their on-going work to produce a country park for the local community. Already the park is being used by walkers and bird watchers and the Void water area has attracted many new varieties of wildlife to the area.
