Continued from cover... Zac has 25 years’ experience, having led worldwide expeditions including peaks in Antarctica, Greenland, the Himalayas and a successful Mount Everest summit to his name.

Originally from Australia, Zac now lives in Caldbeck in Cumbria and has called the Lake District home for seventeen years, having moved to the area due to his love of the great outdoors.

Zac said: “I’ve always known of the role of Fell Top Assessors and thought it would be a job I’d really enjoy so close to home, so I’m really looking forward to joining Jon and Graham next season. I’m very familiar with Helvellyn and I’m looking forward to helping walkers explore the Lakes safely.”

As well as their daily treks, the National Park’s mountain experts also deliver Winter Skills courses to those keen to tackle the fells during the winter months and this is an area of expertise that Zac is particularly keen to bring to the role.

Zac added: “In recent years, I’ve spent much of my time working with television production teams to advise on mountain safety when filming in potentially dangerous settings, so I’m pleased to be applying that experience to this role.”

Most notably Zac has consulted on Planet Earth II, Countrywise, Sport Relief and even Yorkshire Dales and The Lakes, a programme that featured his now colleague Jon Bennett talking about the Fell Top Assessor role.

Jon Bennett said: “The safety of our visitors is our top priority, so we’re thrilled to have someone as experienced as Zac joining the team. His extensive background in mountain training and expeditions is just what we were looking for and we’re now all set for the new season.”

The new team of assessors will be kitting up in December, ready to provide live weather and walking condition reports via the Lake District Weatherline service and their avid Twitter followers (@lakesweather). INFO@THECOCKERMOUTHPOST.CO.UK

The highlight of the month for Keswick Film Club must surely be The Graduate on 5th November, on our annual visit to Rheged.

Mike Nicholls’ wonderful, iconic film has been remastered as a 4k digital version which will look and sound great on the big screen. Has there ever been a better film soundtrack? The reason behind this 1960s nostalgia is a project run by University College London, collecting the film memories of people who went to the cinema in that era.

The film and the talk is open to all, so come and rekindle your own memories at 5.00pm and you can try to remember the contents of a 5-shilling box of Standard Fireworks at the same time! If you are too young to have seen it the first-time round, please come and see what the fuss was all about.

The remainder of the programme looks just as exciting, with a South


The Way of the World at The Kirkgate from the 23rd – 25th November and at Rosehill on the 30th November. 7.30pm for all performances

Our next exciting production is a classic comedy, ‘The Way of the World’ by William Congreve. Already in rehearsals, it is a tale of love and money. Will the hero get his girl and her inheritance, or will he be foiled by his rival? Will the extravagant and inappropriate desires of her aunt, Lady Wishfort, spoil his chances?

Set in the 18th century, the production will feature lavish period costume and a cavalcade of colourful characters.

Following on a hugely successful workshop in Pantomime Skills, brought to an enthusiastic group by professional actor Becky Musto, October brings a new workshop entitled ‘Sharing Summer School’, during which participants will get involved in a varied programme including ‘Shakespeare Made Fun’ and an afternoon of ‘Devising Drama’.

The workshop was developed three CADS members, Jill Roper, Kelly Davis and Alison Shutt and is based on their own experiences at the annual, week-long courses run by the National Operatic and Dramatic Association. The cost for the day is just £5.00 and will be held on the 28th October from 10.00am until 5.00pm at the

CADS is proud to have received thanks for donations made to Eden Valley Hospice and The Lymphoma Association, from money raised during its production of the pantomime in the early part of this year. Work on the 2018 pantomime is already underway, although those with an interest in being part of the chorus are still welcome to apply.

Korean thriller, The Age of Shadows described as full of twists and betrayals as one of John Le Carre’s Cold war thrillers; In Syria takes us inside war-torn Damascus as families shelter from the horrors outside and the much-lauded God’s Own Country, Francis Lee’s tale of love and relationships in rural Yorkshire.
