Levens Village Community website
In order to be able to continue the Levens Village Community website, we need some new volunteers for the Editorial webteam.
Basic IT skills, willingness and a few hours during 2 scheduled weeks, 4 times a year, is all that is required.
The website is easy to edit, training is available, and you’d be part of a team that work together.
If you can help, we would be delighted to hear from you !
Please contact Allan, Claire, Clare, Elaine and Graham at firstname.lastname@example.org.

from Levens Local History Group:
Ague or marsh fever (vivax malaria) is a disease transmitted by female blood sucking mosquitoes that breed in shallow stagnant water. During the 16th to 19th centuries it was endemic in the English fenlands and the coastal marshes of Kent and Essex. However, the history of the disease in many parts of Britain, especially the north, is poorly researched and incompletely understood. This book draws together a highly dispersed literature to present a picture of the history, past distribution and importance of ‘the ague’ in northern Britain, with a particular focus on Cumbria. The book concludes by examining the possibility of malaria re-establishing its former presence in Cumbria and the north as a result of climate warming and other factors.

Thank you to all those who helped and supported our Ethical Coffee Morning. Our unintended profit amounted to £281.90 - so we are going to 'twin' four toilets one for St John's , one for the Methodist Church one each for school and institute - and £41.90 extra which we will put to the South Asia Flood Appeal. If you want to know more about toilet twinning see below.
By twinning your toilet, you help those in desperate poverty to have access to a proper latrine, clean water and the information they need to be healthy.
Your smallest room becomes the proud owner of a certificate, complete with a colour photo of its twin and GPS coordinates so you can look up your twin on Google Maps.
Bawili is a widow who lost everything due to civil war. Lack of proper water and a decent toilet caused her family great pain. But when the community came together to help Bawili and her children – everything changed.
‘My daughter was attacked because we didn’t have a toilet. Having a loo is a big relief for the whole family.’
Bawili, Democratic Republic of Congo
