Pooley Bridge Penrith, CA10 2NH

We are happy to have a vicar again - the Ven Lee Townend - taking on this role in addition to his work as Archdeacon. And very happy to be able to meet in-person though masked and distanced.

 The parish of Pooley Bridge: St Paul is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Carlisle’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
