Win Pavelyn Trophy – 2019 Award

The Parish Council’s 2019 award of the Win Pavelyn Trophy for the best kept garden as viewed from a public road or footpath has been made to Tony and Kath Duckett of Craggs Hill.  In announcing the award, Councillor Martin May commented on the pristine nature of the garden’s lawns and borders and the obvious love, care and attention that Tony and Kath had spent on the garden. 

Tony and Kath are pictured receiving the trophy from Parish Chairman Graham Agnew. 

Death of Alderman Roger Mace

It is with great sadness that we have to report the passing of Alderman Roger Mace, who represented the Kellet Ward on Lancaster City Council from 1999 until May this year. During those 20 years, Roger was a great and highly respected supporter and advocate for Over Kellet through his membership of the City Council and a personal friend of many parishioners.

The Parish Council sends its deepest sympathies and condolences to Roger’s family.
