Making a difference in our community
Residents and ex residents from Calderwood have been making a difference in the rounds of Egremont Castle. Every week they are working on making improvements through tidying up areas, de weeding areas and generally working hard for our town jewel. Thank you all.
Egremont Winter Wonderland
A big shout out to Wilson’s Butchers who have kindly donated £200 to the Egremont Amenity’s Christmas Wonderland Weekend – Wilson’s have been very supportive of our event since we re-invented it in 2012 following on from the good work of the previous Special Events committee.
Every year, Wilson’s have donated a substantial amount which goes towards helping our committee to sustain the event for the community, as everyone knows, affordability is at the forefront of our committee so that everyone in our community is able to attend our Christmas event but to enable this continue, we have made a decision to have our Winter Wonderland event every other year and to help with fundraising, in between the event, we will be having a Christmas Wonderland Weekend in Egremont Market Hall which will consist of stalls selling a wide variety of gifts, food, crafts etc, Christmas carols being sung by our local choirs and live music also.
Father Christmas has also confirmed that he will be in attendance, in fact he said he would not miss the Egremont event as the children who meets are some of the most well behaved and polite children he has met so he looks forward to seeing you all again this year. As a thank you to all the children in our community, our committee have agreed not to make a charge for the children to see Santa, however there will be a donation bucket and if people could donate £1 even, it will go towards making next year’s event as good as ever.
Growing Well is coming to Egremont
Growing Well, a Cumbrian mental health charity, is coming to Egremont. In early 2024 we will be re-opening the Beck Green plant nursery on Cross Side and will use the site to deliver our targeted mental health intervention to local people in need. We will also be running a community day for the local public to get involved in our horticultural enterprise as volunteers where they can learn new skills and meet new people. The site will generate enough fruit and vegetables to fill up to 100 veg boxes per week (50 of which will be subsidised for low-income families).
We are opening the gates to Beck Green between 1-3pm on Friday 6th October. We invite you to come and meet staff from our other Cumbrian sites, learn more about our work and our plans to get the site back up and running.
Please note: Beck Green is very overgrown and not currently in use. The event is simply an opportunity for a quick view of the site and a chance to meet our team. We regret that there is no wheelchair access at this time and no parking on or near to the site just yet (please use Beck Green car park and walk from here). Please also note that there are no toilet facilities. No booking necessary. For all enquiries, please contact email@example.com

Representatives from Egremont Town Council, Cumberland Council, Groundworks, Thomas Armstrong and Westlakes Academy came together to plant the two beds located at the entrance to the Academy. The project is part of the Egremont Main Street refurbishment scheme which includes also the creation of a bespoke seating area beside Bet Fred, newly refurbished seats, new bus shelters and soon to be seen new planters. These will add up to making improvements to the Main Street welcomed by all. The scheme is funded by Cumberland Council, Sellafield Ltd and Egremont Town Council.
