be involved in this project: “It’s an enormous pleasure to be invited to work in an iconic building, on such a high concept design.

“The work involved intense focus as there was an intricate level of detail to be met, which played perfectly to our skillset and enabled us to showcase our expertise. The attraction enjoys a great footfall and it’s nice to know that our work will be enjoyed by so many.”

Design and fit out company Select Interiors has completed a refurbishment project for the Lake District National Park Authority at its popular Brockhole Café on Windermere. The café, which is part of the Brockhole family activity attraction, overlooks Windermere and can be found in the beautiful arts and crafts property which also houses the visitor centre, shop and indoor play area.

Select worked in conjunction with esteemed designer, Judy Reaves, to complete the sympathetic refurbishment of the café counter area, undertaking a scope of works which included bespoke joinery, electrical and mechanical installation, plumbing, full decoration services, hand painting of furniture and the completion of Royal Minton ceramic tiling, alongside cladding and copper fabrication work.

The fast-track project, awarded on the basis of the team’s extensive experience in the hospitality sector and previous specialist projects undertaken in this field, was completed in ten days in order to cause minimum disruption for staff and visitors. Select Interiors’ managing director, Carl Brown is delighted that the team had the opportunity to

Judy Reaves, director of Judy Reaves Design, comments on behalf of The Lake District National Park Authority: “Select’s calm presence on site and the team’s craftsmanship and attention to detail was hugely appreciated. The managers and staff are thrilled with the results and expect that customers will be wowed by the counter area in the coming months. This has been a hugely successful – and smoothly run – project. I hope to work with the team again in the future.”

The borough’s main town of Whitehaven is shaping its bid for £25m of Future High Streets funding. Plans, submitted by this spring, will include infrastructure changes to link the town centre more directly with the picturesque harbour.

The smaller towns of Millom and Cleator Moor are also in the running for radical regeneration – the communities have been invited to bid for up to £25m each from the Government's Towns Fund.

The borough recently concluded the first phase of its Pride of Place shop front scheme. The council gave £325,000 in grants to business owners, who then match-funded the investment to improve their shop fronts. The result has been a marked uplift in the appearance of all four town centres, enabling projects ranging from large-scale refurbs of prominent listed buildings to new signs on small, independent shops.

Much-anticipated investment from West Cumbria Mining looks set to boost the economy with a new coking coal mine near Whitehaven.

The Woodhouse Colliery gained planning permission in recent months, and promises


500 direct jobs for the area, plus more in the supply chain.

The transformational North Shore scheme at Whitehaven’s waterside is led by BEC. There are plans for a hotel and restaurant, offices, car parking, innovative spaces for start-ups and artisan food outlets.

On the tourism front, Copeland Council is leading the Connecting Cumbria’s Hidden Coast project. The recreational route from Whitehaven to Millom will feature adrenalin activities, cycling facilities and art installations along the 40-mile year-round coastal trail. Work is underway and will be complete in time to host a large-scale opening event in September.

Separately, a coastal activities centre in Whitehaven has been given the go-ahead.

The council has also introduced a new visitor information point at its Beacon Museum, run a tourism ‘summit’ for the industry and created a Tourism Officer role.

Some exciting projects are coming to fruition in Copeland, and hopes are high that this year will just be the start of a period of growth and transformation.
