Xmas Taste Cumbria: Strong gusts of winds meant the Taste Cumbria marquees couldn't go up safely on Friday December 7. The event is most definitely still going ahead and the team and stallholders will be putting up individual gazebos from 7am in the Saturday morning on Main Street. The aim is for the Christmas market to open at noon then stay open into the evening, maybe 6pm. Things will run as planned, 10am-4pm on Sunday. There will be children's fairgrounds on Main Street while the children's activities will move to The Vicky in High Sand Lane. The bar with real ales and mulled wine will move to the Cooperage at Jennings Brewery, which will remain open all weekend with tours on offer too.

Cockermouth gets a Calendar for 2019

Main street view
With almost 80 years association with the town, Cockermouth Rotary Club and its latest president, Joe Fagan, thought it would be a great idea to offer a calendar that captured some of images of what makes Cockermouth a great place to live. The glossy large format calendar features full colour pictures for every month of the coming year. The calendars which cost £7.50 each can be purchased at the following outlets: Banks Ironmongers, Strolling for Shoes, Percy House Gallery, the New Bookshop,Anabelles and the Swan Inn. Or £9 including postage via our online option.
