160 years of John Richardson & Son In our continuation of the history of 160 years of John Richardson and Sons we have now reached our final instalment plotting the last 100 years, which has been an overview of key times and changes in the business. We mentioned last month George Richardson, son of the founder John Richardson who started the business in 1852. Three of George’s thirteen children joined the business and in the 1920’s George’s grand children took the business forward. At this time the firm employed approximately 120 staff and were responsible for carrying out construction and renovation of local churches, schools and village halls. The firm was also involved in fitting out many of the towns businesses such as Barclays and Lloyds banks. After surviving two world wars they decided in 1945 to incorporate the business into a limited company, the new name becoming John Richardson & Son (Penrith) Ltd. The directors were Thomas H Richardson and his daughter Dorothy A. Richardson, George W. Richardson and his son Donald G Richardson. During the post war years the business grew from strength to strength and it became an established household name as a timber merchants, joiners and funeral directors. At this time Donald G Richardson, great grandson of the founder, become the sole proprietor of the business. As the company moved towards the 1980’s there was more focus on the funeral and joinery side of the business with a gradual scaling down of the timber operations. In 1982, now in his 70’s Donald Richardson was keen to find somebody to hand over the reins to and it had to be a transition that would see an established business continue in name as well as tradition and continue to build on the foundations created by past generations. It was to be another local family business Bayshields Ltd, owned by the Dudson family from Penrith, that was to continue the good work with this established name and community trust, retaining the existing staff, four of whom had already

Taken in 1922 the Funeral cortege of the late Jim Stewart. Funeral Directed by John Richardson & Son. Mr Stewart’s predecessors include Dudson, O’Neil, Stewart and Walton families of Penrith. Three of his Great, Great grandchildren are currently working for John Richardson & Son EdenLocal

completed 50 years service. Donald still continued in the capacity of Funeral Director until he retired in the 1990’s and still shows an interest at the age of 104. In 1984, Bayshields Ltd, trading as John Richardson and Sons, moved to the Roper Street site from their current Brunswick Road premises in Penrith. The site was previously used as a Brewery and small alterations were made to accommodate the three sides of the business. In 1989, in order to expand and gain more space the former Carleton Hotel, Victoria Road, Penrith, being adjacent to the Roper Street site, was purchased to house the Funeral Directors and accounts offices. The building was fully refurbished to a very high standard and a quiet, relaxing atmosphere with private chapels of rest was created. Further to this in 2002 new premises at Scotland Road, Penrith were purchased to house the sawmilling and joinery side of the business. A full development of this site (formerly the National tyre depot) was carried out to create a state of the art workshop and sawmilling facilities. This made way for a major re-furbishment of the existing Roper Street depot and the building was vastly expanded and modernised. Concentration was on expanding the timber side of the business and creating a modern hardware shop incorporating doors, flooring and paints. The business also started to diversify, utilising its experience and skills, expanding the shop onto two floors with retail space and counter on the ground floor and a large showroom on the first floor for kitchens, bedrooms and other home improvement ideas. Today, John Richardson & Son is still very much a family business based on 3 sites employing over 60 staff, of which 10 members of staff have completed over 25 years service. Over the last 60 years it has expanded and retained its roots in the community as did the original John Richardson back in 1852. Like every business long established in Penrith the company has had to change with the times, with the needs, trends and requirements of its customers and the financial climate. With its strong foundations, it is now preparing for the next generation and the generations to follow. On the 1st September you are invited to join the team for an open day celebrating the 160th anniversary of the founding of the business. It’s a local business which has moved with the times and has much to offer the modern customer. A visit to the timber merchants and home improvements store in Roper Street is well worth a visit to see what this long standing business has to offer in the 21st Century.

Smoked Salmon Doughnuts By Peter Sidwell These tasty little nibbles are a great start to a dinner party or if you just fancy something light for supper. I’ve used smoked salmon as I love the flavour. Always remember the finishing touches – a sprinkle of sea salt and a squeeze of lemon make all the difference.

Ingredients 4 egg whites Pinch of salt 3 tbsp basil leaves 1 lemon 75g/ 3oz smoked salmon, chopped 2 tbsp self-raising flour Vegetable oil, for frying

Here’s how 1. Whisk up the egg whites with a pinch of salt until light and fluffy. 2. Roughly chop the basil leaves and add to the egg whites. Zest the lemon and add the zest to the egg mixture with the chopped smoked salmon. 3. Fold in the flour carefully so as not to knock any air out of the mixture 4. In a large frying pan heat around 5cm (2in) depth of vegetable oil. When it is approximately 170°C/ 340°F start cooking the doughnuts. Test it by putting your spoon into the oil with a tiny bit of the mixture on, if it starts to crackle then the oil is ready. 5. Dip a tablespoon into the hot oil then use it to scoop out a generous spoonful of the doughnut mixture and drop it in the oil. 6. Cook about 4 doughnuts at a time. Turn them over after approximately 45 seconds – they should be golden and crispy – then cook on the remaining side. Remove from the pan and drain them on kitchen paper to absorb excess oil. 7. If necessary, keep the doughnuts warm in the oven while you cook the rest. 8. Serve with the lemon you used for the zest, cut into quarters.

Peter Sidwell, will be at the Burrowgate Penrith Co-op from 10 am 4th August, with his new book, join him there

A fresh look at local food, with your local Penrith co-op Society? Low mileage food; for some it is a debate, for some a simple answer and then for some it becomes very complicated. Over the past year I have read a number of articles and press releases about food from the farm, sold as fresh, which is taken from a neighbouring county, involves moving products more than just a few miles and en route travels past farms and fields with the same products growing in them that are within a mile of the eventual point of sale for these products. Is this local, is it good for the local economy, who actually benefits from it? Since starting the Cumbrian Local publications I have spent many hours searching for locally produced products. I have featured these products with their producers on a regular basis. Building on this growing network over the last few months, I have been out on the road across Cumbria with John Mills the Chief Executive Officer for the Penrith co-op Society. Our aim has simply been to find locally produced food and look at how this can be sustainably made readily available in store. In my quest to find local food producers for my previous articles I have found products produced in Cumbria, which are then sent hundreds of miles to be packaged only to be returned to the county to be sold. In my experience of working in retail for close to 20 years, which included logistics and

EdenLocal

phone: 01768 899111

distribution, there weren’t that many locally sourced products but in the early days there were many suppliers who delivered direct arriving to the store loading bay. By the early 90’s much of this had changed, with the exception of bread products from a regional baker and milk from a regional diary, everything else went to a central distribution depot and then was sent out to the individual stores on the company’s own transport. We might see local products on the shelves in local supermarkets but because of the systems now in place the chances are these products will not have been permitted to go direct to the store that might be within a few miles from where it is grown, produced or packaged but will actually have gone to a central distribution warehouse, only to be re- picked and then sent back to within a stones throw of where it came from to be actually sold. The madness can get even worse; some products are actually delivered to the stores by the producer, only to be taken back to the main distribution centre by a returning (empty) delivery vehicle and then finally to be re-delivered back to the store for sale! This is ‘back logistics’, utilising an existing system and supposedly saving money as the returning vehicle is not thought to be really doing any extra miles. The extra miles are bridged by the producer.

www.edenlocal.co.uk

info@edenlocal.co.uk

Behind much of the food we buy is a food supply chain or a cold chain, this can range across 100s to 1000s of miles depending on the food’s origin and season. For many products we may not have a choice and through the demand for certain food and non food products it is this logistics web across the country and the world that feeds our demand. Once upon a time, strawberries were available in June, sometimes we had a second crop, but out of season they would have to be found in a tin. We had new potatoes in the summer and during this time old potatoes weren’t available. ‘Seasonal fruit and veg’ it was called in those days, much of it subject to availability and the weather. I suppose it was around the same time when we used to buy a loaf of bread and the choice was either white or brown, then along came wholemeal, what a choice? Processed food would have been found in a tin with peas on the label and then came the revolution of frozen food. But nowadays we want and expect our “seasonal” fruit and veg to be available all year round! Recently I wrote about local eggs, which after two phone calls, were on display in the local Penrith co-op Society stores. With local food, comes low food mileage. I see this to be the real test and measure of freshness and genuinely low carbon foot print. The eggs are produced locally, then collected and packed at the Lakes Free Range Egg company in Stainton. With 14 (yes fourteen) local co-op home delivery vans in its fleet, it was a simple decision to collect the local co-op’s requirements using a van that was on its way back to the store from its home deliveries. No distribution costs, a short supply chain, minimal logistics but the real bonus; a local quality product,

which is now the best value ½ dozen free range eggs available locally allowing a reduction in price through the saving made in distribution. Who gains from this one simple example? The answer of course is everyone; the producer, the store and most importantly of all - the consumer. As a project away from our monthly publications, I will be visiting many more local producers and wholesalers across Cumbria, in association with representatives from your local co-op society, including the Penrith co-op department store and food hall at 19 Burrowgate in Penrith, the Lazonby, Shap and Keswick stores. Discussing the project in store with staff and managers, as a team it’s an exciting time, but there are some key elements to this local strategy. The Penrith co-op Society was established in 1890 and sourcing local products from local producers and suppliers is something that is as important now as it was back then; supporting the local economy, fair prices for producers and better prices for its customers. Working closer with locally based producers around it’s stores and locally established wholesalers, its aims are to source from local suppliers wherever possible. In the months that follow your local Penrith co-op Society will be sourcing wherever it can low mileage, local products. Back in 1890 deliveries were made with a horse and cart. As time passed and technology changed the society up graded its delivery fleet as motor vehicles came in, and the community was also served by a mobile shop. Traditional as it is, your local Penrith co-op Society has

John Mills with Chris Tomlinson at Tirrell Brewery

been delivering its products to the community for 122 years. It now has 14 local delivery vans, so that van that you seem to keep seeing is actually one of many! Anyone can order from the Penrith co-op Society, but I have to be honest this is still by traditional methods, for example: you can call your local store and order over the phone or you can fax or email your order over. But the favourite for most is still a trip to the store, where for many generations customers have selected and paid for their goods, with delivery later that day. Importantly your local co-op is creating a choice. If you want local food, that is available seasonally, you only have to ask. At the co-op they are striving to increase their range of local products, so you can have fresh locally produced food delivered right to your door. As more local products are now coming into the stores, please look out for the in-store notice boards, which will have local products identified and their producer. As these become available they will also be posted on the website - details below.

And finally, at this point, I am also going to answer a question that has been frequently asked over the last three years: what is the difference between the two co-op’s in Penrith? Well it was only recently in 2009, when the Somerfield’s store in King Street, Penrith was acquired by the co-operative group (formerly the co-operative wholesale society), following the purchase of Somerfields. The Penrith co-op Society founded in 1890, whilst being part of the wider co-operative family and able to access products from the national CRTG buying group, is an independent local co-operative with its own nine stores. The head office is on the second floor of the department store and food hall in Burrowgate, Penrith. Being a part of the CRTG buying group means it stocks a range of everyday essential supermarket products including the co-operative brand. The clear difference is that your local Penrith co-op Society not only sources its own truly local products but it has over 25,000 members based in the local community that share in the benefits with share dividends based on their purchases with the society.

Are you a member of the Penrith co-op Society?

“The taxman’s taken all my dough And left me in my holiday home Lazing on a sunny afternoon” August - those lazy hazy days of summer, eating ice creams, basking in the sunshine and taking a well-earned holiday, perhaps bring back a few “duty frees”. You can jet off to the sun or wherever it is you’re going, and business and work are soon many miles away. 31 January is but a distant speck on the horizon, conveniently forgotten. Just the ticket! Inconveniently however the tax man doesn’t forget and that distant speck seems to loom larger and quicker every year. But there’s no need to let the tax man put a dampener on your summer (let the UK weather do that!). You can enjoy it even more – by sorting out your personal tax return before you go away.

Light, Bright and Dry

Its our third trip to the Devonshire Arcade in the series of articles that we have been putting together. Living in Penrith, I walk through the Arcade at least half a dozen times a week to get to the Eden Local office at Sandgate. This is usually early in the morning when Colin has been busy making sure its spic and span ready for the day come rain or shine. That’s always a bonus of course, you’ll never get wet shopping in the Arcade-it never rains in this part of town! And should the sun ever shine again, after this dreadful start to the summer, the Arcade becomes a cool haven to escape from the sun on a hot day - who knows, perhaps we’ll have an Indian Summer. Early in the morning the shops and the restaurants go through the motion of opening up. The hive of activity is always at the Sandgate end first thing in the morning. The deliveries coming in and the counters being set out. Something, which as we have covered in one of our previous articles, is the same way that it has been since the 1860’s when the arcade first opened its doors. From the conversations I have had with Neil, the proprietor of the Fish Cellar, I’m inclined to think his day starts in the middle of the night and he is not the only one. As independent traders not everything is available on the doorstep with a number of items having to be sourced from locations quite a few hours away, especially the fish from Scotland and even further afield. In the morning the place is buzzing as EdenLocal

phone: 01768 899111

www.edenlocal.co.uk

everyone is setting up; Little’s Butchers preparing their counters, Flower Designs making up the flower displays and The Market Fruitier laying out the fresh fruit and veg all to the smell of freshly baked bread from the Crafty Baker which helps to draw in the early customers on their way to work. Later in the morning Sam and I can be occasionally seen stealing out from the office to grab a freshly made cream cake from the Crafty Baker, it’s difficult to resist one of those Coffee Renoir’s to go with the morning coffee or a Strawberry Tart, to try and remind us that it really is the summer. I always like to linger to read one of the fun cards outside Destiny Cards- they always bring a smile whatever the weather. Last month, Sam asked if anyone knew about the origin of the Pet Shop, well we have had a fantastic response, on email and via calls to the office. For next month I’ll bring you an update on this as I have been invited to discuss it and other historical facts over a coffee. Meanwhile, make it a point to take a trip this week into the Devonshire Arcade, it’s not a case of when was the last time but when will be you going next? Experience the tradition of social sales, engaging with the businesses, talking to the shopkeepers, the people behind the counters and in the restaurants and café’s.

Eden Towns and Villages As regular readers will know over the past few months, in each edition of Eden Local, we have been featuring one of our local communities. We started back in February when Martin Cowin wrote a fascinating article about the history of Brough from the time of the Romans right up to the building of the A66 by pass in 1977. The castle which is seen from the busy A66 was established by the Normans in 1092 on the site of the original Roman fort and was last subject to improvement by Lady Anne Clifford in the seventeenth century. In April we ventured out to Melmerby nestling beneath the Pennine hills on the famous A686. Local people contributing passionately about their love of the village and all that it has to offer. May’s edition featured the pretty village of Greystoke, situated on the route of the cycle Coast to Coast. We learnt that the “Boot and Shoe”, a 17th century coaching inn, got it’s name because of the habit of a former Duke Of Norfolk of wearing a shoe on one foot and a boot on the other to ease the pain from his gout. In June Appleby got the star treatment with a three page article illustrating some little known historical nuggets including the fact that William Pitt was once the town’s MP and how the town became a Royal Borough following the murder of Thomas a Becket in 1170. And finally last month we crossed the “temporary” Bailey Bridge over the River Eden to Langwathby, where we learnt about the village’s history and sporting connections. Your Community featured in Eden Local Do you want to see your town or village featured in Eden Local? If so we would love to hear from you.

22 • EdenLocal Walking with Keith Wood

Mickleden

The valley of Mickleden serves as an extension of the main Great Langdale valley going even deeper into the heart of the high mountains. Overlooked by the twin peaks of Loft Crag and Pike O’ Stickle to the north and by the great rising ridge of The Band leading to Bowfell to the south. Guarding the head of the valley to the west is Rossett Pike with Rossett Gill and Stake Gill to either side. This short, two mile walk on the level starting from the Old Dungeon Ghyll Hotel, the birthplace of rock climbing in Langdale, goes half way down the valley giving plenty of opportunity to appreciate the surrounding mountains. 1) Start from the National Trust Old Dungeon Ghyll Car Park. Leave the Car Park and walk around the back of the hotel on the surfaced lane. As the road swings up to the right keep walking straight on following the “Path” sign onto the stony path with a gate at the end and Bowfell straight ahead. Pass through the gate and walk straight on along the path just above the wall heading towards Mickleden. With Raven Crag immediately above on the right pass by Middle Fell Farm below on the left. This popular path, part of the Cumbria Way heads into the heart of the mountains at the head of Great Langdale with Pike o’ Blisco to the left, Crinckle Crags ahead and the mass of Bowfell to the front right. As the path proceeds deeper into Mickleden the distinctive shape of Pike o’ Stickle appears above to the right and Rossett Pike appears on the horizon at the head of the valley with Stool End Farm at the end of The Band in the valley bottom on the left. The path swings around to the right to go beneath Pike o’ Stickle heading straight down the valley with the deep cleft of Rossett Gill in sight at the head of the valley. 2) As the valley opens out and the end of the wall on the left is reached simply cross the grass heading EdenLocal

phone: 01768 899111

www.edenlocal.co.uk

towards Mickleden Beck. Cross over the beck using either the footbridge or ford to reach the clear path on the opposite bank. Having reached the bank turn left and walk along the clear path heading back along the valley with The Band up to the right. Join a farmers track as it rounds the end of a drystone wall and walk along the track as it passes through a walled enclosure. Follow the Footpath with its slate sign around to the right and after barely 50 yards swing back around to the left and through a gate with a drystone wall now on the left as the route heads to Stool End Farm. Pike o’ Stickle and Loft Crag; two of the Langdale Pikes are on the left and looking down the valley Side Pike and Lingmoor are now in the foreground. The rough stony path heads along beside the wall to reach Stool End Farm past a copse of mixed woodland. 3) The path goes around the back of the farm buildings and then follow the sign on a gate through the farmyard and follow the clear signs through the farm buildings around to the right and back around the sheep pens onto the surfaced lane to head back to Old Dungeon Ghyll Hotel. Walk back along the surfaced road along the valley bottom over a cattle grid. The road crosses over Oxendale Beck. As you reach the road; turn immediately to the left following the sign “Public Way” to the Old Dungeon Ghyll Car Park. With the hotel and Car Park in sight cross over the Packhorse Bridge and follow the footpath signs back to the start. Full details of the route with map and photographs are in Keith’s “ Boot up Grasmere and Langdale”, which can be found in many local outlets including Penrith Outdoor Pursuits, the usual internet bookshops or directly from the author at: www.keithwoodphotography.co.uk

Eden FM Radio, What Comes Next? By Lee Quinn Chairman Eden FM

As I write this article, Eden FM radio is coming to the end of its second trial transmission. It’s been another 28 day RSL (restricted service licence) which has been seen and heard on 87.7 FM at various locations in the Eden Valley and with listeners tuning in as far north as Carlisle. Whilst the temporary transmission mast and scaffolding are being removed from the Cumbria Mini Centre exterior, where the station is based the project carries on. The community station continues on the internet 24 hours a day and the presenters, who just nine months ago had not even been in a studio are now close to completing their first year as radio presenters. We have had so much interest in the radio from local businesses in Eden and across Cumbria, with the interest also continuing to attract new volunteers. We had two new presenters debuting in this transmission; well done to Craig and John. The feedback on the quality of the programmes and what has been achieved by this voluntary group has

Eden

been close to overwhelming. Much of the work has been behind the scenes and the comments sent in are in recognition of the growing experience and confidence of the team. On behalf of the team I would like to thank all those businesses that without their support none of this would have been possible. Some special thanks go to Ullswater Road Garage- our landlords, our main station sponsor the Penrith Co-op Society and also to our website support team at Eden valley Websites. For some special, last minute helping hands thank you to the team at Thompson Scaffolding, D & H Motors and Total Signs. The biggest thank you has to be to the growing number of Eden FM Radio listeners. Some are now established regulars via 87.7 FM or on the internet. Please keep listening and please keep in touch. To all our listeners in the community it is your commitment and support that makes it all worthwhile and gives the team the motivation and reason to continue striving for that full-time status. Ofcom the regulator will be announcing between now and December 2012 a date when groups in Cumbria can apply for a fulltime licence. This may happen in 4 weeks or 4 months but until then we wait. We do need you to email

your support and write in supporting our application. When the date is confirmed from Ofcom we will have 3 months to complete and submit the full time community radio application. Then it could be anything from 3 to 6 months after the 3 month application period closes before we hear anything. Subject to timescales and costs, Eden FM will need to make a decision if it will be doing one more 28 day RSL, or it will save on the expense in preparation for the outcome of the application. Eden FM Radio’s intentions are quite clear. It will continue to support local events, local businesses, local groups and on a daily basis it will deliver a schedule of music and presented shows for the community. Please keep a check on our website for updates regarding our licence application and please keep hitting that button which says click to listen.

And Finally...... As ever with “And Finally” it’s time to acknowledge the key groups who contribute to the ever increasing success of Eden Local. Thank you to our advertisers and sponsors, to everyone who has contributed to this month’s Eden Local (including members of the Wood family for putting together this month’s Wordsearch) and most importantly a big thank you to you for taking the time to read this month’s issue. Don’t forget to visit the biggest event to take place in the area this month; the Lowther Game and Country Fair. Taking place over the weekend of the 11th and 12th August and set once again in the stunning grounds of Lowther Castle. This year Lowther welcomes a variety of features and demonstrations through its gates, including Cyril the Squirrel and Ye Olde Redtail Falconry, plus new acts for 2012, the Whitehaven Brass Band, a superb hunt and hound parade, Thomas Longton Sheepdog Display and

the superb Patanavac Gundog Display. With over 200 quality exhibition stands, picnic areas, crafts and antiques fairs, the Lowther Country Fair makes the perfect family day out. With next month’s issue the circulation for the magazine will grow again as copies of Eden Local will begin to drop through all the doors in the CA10-3 post code area, so if you were feeling a bit left out in Shap then worry no more, you’ll be receiving a copy of Eden Local every month from September. So remember your ever growing Eden Local is the free community magazine that is guaranteed to go through doors, delivered every month by the Royal Mail, it’s not dependant on newsagent copy sales. Until next time, enjoy the rest of the school summer holidays (and if we’re lucky a bit of sun). Keith Wood
