WHAT’S WITH THE SUNSHINE?
It is unseasonably sunny at the moment. I mean, we’re into June and the clouds haven’t opened up yet and entertained us with a steady downpour for days on end. That’s what we usually get with a Cumbrian summer. We’re simply not used to so much sunshine.
There is a huge contrast between Cockermouth and Keswick when the sun comes out. Keswick becomes a heaving mass of shorts, sunhats and rucksacks while Cockermouth tends to empty during the day as people take advantage of the weather to nip out to the lakes or do a spot of gardening. It’s a shame really, as Cockermouth has a lot to offer in the sunshine.

My commute down the River Cocker is idyllic. While others might be stressing out on the M25 or the M6, I can leisurely walk down to the river and find my way into work. You would hardly know you’re in a town at all. If you’re lucky, you’ll see a kingfisher zip by – a flash of bright blue, then gone. Keep your eyes open. You’ll be
surprised at what you can see.
You can also cross the River Derwent and walk along the path until you draw level with the castle. It always looks imposing from across the river. Take care with the paths though. If you carry on right to the end and scuttle through the trees you will come to the end of a mill run and see where the water divided to feed the mills in the Gote. Always useful to remind yourself of the history of the place.
I could mention Harris Park, Wordsworth House and The Brewery as well. If that’s not enough for you, you can always browse our range of independent shops. We’re pretty unique in the range and depth on offer. Even when the sun comes out, Cockermouth has something special to offer.

nutrition with jackie ~DRINK TO YOUR HEALTH, IT TASTES BETTER THAN YOU THINK!~
With the all warm weather, you might fancy a cold drink. They say that in America, over half the calories consumed come from sugar in soft drinks. Terrifying! Outrageously, 12% of the Coca- Cola is drunk at breakfast. In Britain we’re not that bad yet but we certainly do have a drink problem. So, what’s what?
Fizzy drinks – very sugary leading to weight gain and diabetes. Artificial sweeteners have been proven not to help with weight loss because the sweet taste triggers your brain to seek out more food. Very acidic leading to tooth decay and osteoporosis
Fruit Juice – natural(ish) can cause weight gain and tooth decay. Fructose is processed via your liver to create fat. High intakes can lead to non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (first found in 1980). You wouldn’t eat 4 apples/oranges at once but they’re easy to drink
Smoothies – most bought ones and internet recipes are too heavy on fruit
Squash – contains sugar or sweeteners
Sports drinks – heavily marketed, unhealthy and unnecessary. High in caffeine and sugar they’re very bad, especially for children
Solution – wean yourself off sweet drinks; your palate can change in as little as two weeks
Vegetable juices - a brilliant way to get lots of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and phytonutrients. Use 80% vegetables (Brussels sprouts, broccoli and cauliflower stems, leafy greens). Add small amounts of fruit to improve flavour (½ a lime, lemon or a bit of pear and ginger)
Smoothies – Use avocados and green leaves with almond/coconut milk or plain live yoghurt. Add a few berries or ¼ banana
Water – great choice - would be even better if they stopped fluoridation!
Top tips – switch to healthier drinks
