This year will see the fifteenth Woolfest, the original British festival of wool and it will be taking over Mitchells Lakeland Livestock Centre on Friday 28th and Saturday 29th June. Over the years, Woolfest has brought thousands of visitors to Cockermouth and this year’s event promises to be as busy, colourful and inspiring as ever.

Ellie Langley, a member of The Wool Clip co-operative and one of the Woolfest organising team said: “With even more stallholders than usual, offering something new for visitors, whatever their preferred craft, it’s good to be able to have a mix of familiar faces, as well as newer businesses.

“We also have a busy programme of exhibitions, workshops, demonstrations, live music and lots more to fill those two days.

“We really appreciate everyone’s support and help as well as all those businesses and individuals in and around Cockermouth, who offer such warm hospitality to our visitors.

“They make an invaluable contribution to Woolfest’s welcome and every year, we receive lovely feedback about everything, from the Quince and Medlar’s food, to the great range of independent shops in the town centre. We hope that Cockermouth enjoys this year’s Woolfest as much as everyone else and thank you.”

Members of The Wool Clip co- operative, who have a shop in Priest’s Mill at Caldbeck, organise Woolfest every year and they work with local

food and drink

producers, musicians, the team at Mitchells and over 100 volunteers to make it all happen. CO-OP


I am delighted to be able to share with you that Co-op Legal Services, the company that provides all the written documentation for my clients, has been awarded two prestigious awards in the ‘2018 British Wills and Probate Awards’. It has been awarded ‘Will Writing Firm of the Year’ and ‘Probate Provider of the Year’. I am naturally proud of the people I correspond with daily and I see it as a testament to the commitment the Co-op gives to providing excellence in its provision of Estate Planning and Probate services. I see this as a confirmation of what I already knew that the quality of documentation, value for money and the service provided is second to none.

The Co-op also provides for all our clients free storage of all documentation, including House Deeds... for life.

There has been a lot said about Funeral Plans recently in the press and much advertising of them. The Co-op offer ‘Fully Guaranteed’ Funeral Plans which means there is an absolute guarantee that if you die 30 years from now there will be no more to pay. Furthermore, they are, like for like, excellent value and the Co-op even gives Co-op members an immediate 5% reduction off any of the plan prices. It costs just £1 to join the Co-op!

If you would like further details about any of the Estate Planning Services the Co-op offers, from full house trusts down to simple Wills I am very happy to oblige. I am based in the Lorton Valley and I will come to see you at a time of your convenience.
