Egremont has been named

the best market town to

live and work in by the Royal Mail

According to a new study market towns offer a good work-life balance because of affordable homes, good schools and low numbers of people working long hours.
Royal Mail drew up a list of the best market towns to live and work in across the UK.
Egremont was named best in England, Langholm in Scotland, Denbigh in Wales and Carrickfergus in Northern Ireland.

A Royal Mail spokesman said “This new study demonstrates the breadth of market towns providing attractive places for people across the UK to live and work in.

“For people who value a good work-life balance, there are plenty of market towns to choose from.”

The findings were based on average earnings, house prices, access to services, crime figures, skill level of the local population and unemployment figures.

Removal of the weir at Ennerdale mill

 to let you know the work on the removal of Ennerdale Mill Weir has started and access to the site is not allowed for health and safety reasons.

The footpath from the allotments along the river is still open but fenced off from the work site (the work site can however still be easily seen from the footpath or the opposite bank).

Site visits can be arranged to the site by the site manager although the correct PPE will need to be warn and a site induction given. If anyone would like further information or to book a site tour (these will be arranged in small groups) please contact myself or Luke Bryant (cc’d).

Kind regards,

Egremont town council

mark the RAF

100yr anniversary

Egremont Town Council have today completed their commemorative flower display to  commemorate the 100th year of the RAF.

The floral display is situated opposite the cemetery and is a wonderful celebration of thanks to the endeavours of the many west Cumbrian officers who have served the RAF over the last century.

The display is the work of the Town council’s very own cemetery care taker – Nelson Shepard. Nelson continues to work wonders for the community and deserves all our gratitude for his amazing work.

The Beacon Museum once again becomes free to Copeland residents this week.

The Beacon Museum once again

becomes free to Copeland residents this week.

From Tuesday April 17, The award-winning museum will offer free admission for those Copeland residents who have signed up for a Copeland Pass.
The Copeland Pass offers residents full access to all exhibitions at certain times of the year. This current period runs from Tuesday April 17 until Friday June 8, and features two new exhibitions.
Waggonways to Whitehaven: West Cumbria on Rails depicts the history of the West Cumbrian rail network, with a specific focus on Whitehaven. Artefacts from local contributors combined with the museum collection result in an absorbing introduction to the history of the local railways.
Pirates! Fact and Fiction is a celebration of all things ‘pirate,’ with film and television costumes combining with real artefacts to tell tales from the high seas.
Both exhibitions run until Sunday June 3, and the summer half term is included in the Copeland Pass free entry period.

Applicants for the Copeland Pass must have a Copeland postcode and bring an ID to register upon visiting.
The Beacon Museum’s business development manager, Alan Irwin, said: “We run the Copeland Pass to ensure residents have access to the museum for as much of the year as we can offer. I would urge those who haven’t visited lately to use this opportunity to give their local museum a try.

“We do charge for some exhibitions, outside the free Copeland Pass periods – this means we can not only keep our doors open, but also offer new exhibitions and content for visitors to enjoy.”
The museum had a busy Easter period, welcoming nearly 1,000 extra visitors compared to Easter last year. This was driven by the success of Nick Sharratt’s Pirates, Pants and Wellyphants exhibition, as well as an imaginative array of events and workshops.
For full listings of exhibitions and events, visit thebeacon-whitehaven.co.uk or call 01946 592302.
