Please also note the new “Bentham Lift-Share scheme” page:

This has been set up to help people in Bentham and the surrounding area to offer and receive lifts.

It uses a Google Groups mailing list. You can join the list here:
https://groups.google.com/d/forum/benthamls

If you would like a lift, or to offer one, you send an email to the group using the address
benthamls@googlegroups.com (the address will only work for group members).

The message will automatically go to all other members of the group, who can then offer or accept.

Local Shopping

This is a comment from Peter Lennard - Don't be shy - 
please leave your comments/answers at the bottom of 
the post.

I live only part time in Low Bentham but was very 
pleased to see the arrival/expansion/conversion of
 the shop called Antiques into &tiques, selling food.
 On checking it out I found that they are selling 
organic fruit and veg at very competitive prices 
compared to supermarkets, will take orders for 
newspapers and also sell nice bread. I compared the 
price of their smoked salmon with Sainsbury in 
Lancaster. &ntiques price of £2.95 for a pack of 
Atlantic Smoked Salmon compared with (best price) 
2 for £8 at Sainsbury for factory farmed smoked salmon
 (similar weight per pack I think). Of course they 
don't do the range that any supermarket can do, but I
 look in at the shop first even if I am intending to 
go into Lancaster, for instance, and note what I can buy
 here on my return. But are people using this shop? Not 
many, it seems. Isn't it more environmentally 
sustainable to buy locally where possible and only go to
 a distant supermarket for things not available locally 
for a reasonable price? Is there any way that we can 
persuade local people to give it a try?
