Originally a chicken shed, Ashness Hut was donated to Keswick Scouts, along with the land which it sits on just over 70 years ago, with the aim to provide a cost-effective place to stay for former evacuees and other underprivileged post-war children. Today, the hut is in desperate need of renovation, even though it is still used as part of a varied programme of activities by 93 young scouts.


Director for Lake District Hotels, Dani Hope commented: “We are excited to be able to help towards the refurbishment of Ashness


Hut, which we hope will make a real difference to Keswick Scouts.”


Assistant Scout Leader and Group Watersports Co-ordinator, Jonny Winter commented: “Ashness Hut is a fabulous resource, even though it's just a few miles outside the town it feels like a world apart. It's perfect for taking the young people back to nature, be it through fire-lighting, bush craft and outdoor cooking sessions, during the week or multi-day camps where we use the hut as a base to explore the local countryside. Some of my favourite memories are of the adventures I had there myself as a scout!”

RED SQUIRREL CAMPAIGN!


The Lake District Foundation has launched a campaign to raise £20,000 to support Red Squirrel Conservation.


This will fund much-needed monitoring equipment and materials, vital in the conservation of this iconic Cumbrian species.


With 14 dedicated local groups working tirelessly to protect the reds, evidence suggests that their conservation efforts are working and that, with collaboration between local projects, volunteer groups and local communities, red squirrels can still thrive.


Research shows that the most serious threat INFO@COCKERMOUTHPOST.CO.UK ISSUE 435 | 19 SEPTEMBER 2019 | 48


are the larger non-native grey squirrel, who not only outcompete the smaller red for food, but also carry squirrel pox, which is deadly to the reds. However, thanks to the work of volunteers, research shows that when reds and greys are kept apart, red squirrels can thrive.
