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:

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.

Green Cafe tomorrow – all about the “Local Plan” & CARnival Bentham awards prizes for B.E.S.T. damselfly.










B.E.S.T. was awarded a “most original” certificate a hand made ornament of a robin (made by Sue Halsall) and a fantastic hand knitted rosette by CARnival Bentham for Collette Austin’s carnival damselfly which was made entirely from re-used waste, (e.g. plastic bottles, tin foil, plastic bags etc.).  Sorry for the delay in posting this up – it was a case of getting round to taking the photo!

Also B.E.S.T. Green Cafe at 8pm Looking Well Studios tomorrow night (Wednesday).  Click the following link for more details: 2015 Local Plan
