ALL THE LATEST NEWS, VIEWS AND STORIES FROM AROUND YOUR LOCAL AREA:JANUARY/FEBRUARY
The Keswick Fairtrade Campaign has suffered the loss of some long-term and much valued activists but has recently experienced a revival with new vigorous members on the committee.
During the Christmas period, Fairtrade featured in a variety of events in Keswick, including the Victorian Fayre and the Christmas Tree Festival. A constant reminder to people of the benefits of Fairtrade, is a short film which is displayed at every showing in the Alhambra Cinema.
The Campaign Committee will be making plans for Fairtrade Fortnight from 24th February, to 8th March at the next meeting.

On 3rd December 2019, Scottish Ensemble gave us a candlelit seamless string of pieces full of sound and energy. This was string playing at its best. Unfortunately, after 11 years, this could be the last Orchestral Concert we can bring to Cockermouth, due to lack of funding. Our Chamber Concerts will, of course, continue.

Since September 2019, Lake District Hotels have focused their fundraising activities towards Keswick Scouts, with the aim to hand over a substantial amount of money in April 2020. The total raised will help towards the renovations of Ashness Hut, a property which is used by 93 young scouts today but is in desperate need of renovation.
To date, the local hotel group, which consists of Lodore Falls Hotel and Spa, Borrowdale Hotel, Inn on the Square, Skiddaw Hotel, Kings Arms Hotel in Keswick and Inn on the Lake in Ullswater, have raised just over £8,000 from a number of charity events and activities.
The most recent fundraiser took place recently, which saw Marketing Manager for Lake District Hotels, Leah Davies, take on the North Lakes half-marathon,
a gruelling 13.1 miles around the stunning Lorton Valley. Supported by friends and family, Leah managed to raise an impressive £500 for the group's charity of the year.
Leah commented: “Over the last five years, I've been heavily involved in the organisational side of our fundraising activities, so I wanted to do something extra this year and signed up to run a half marathon.
“I managed to complete the run in 2 hours and 11 minutes, which I'm really pleased with. I'd like to thank everyone who sponsored me.”
