Dear Residents & Businesses What did we set out to achieve when your first Eden Local which was released on 15th November 2010 to around 6,000 local addresses in Penrith? We wanted to deliver good news, current stories and we wanted to assist local businesses, societies and organisation in promoting themselves. We also wanted the community to share its positive achievements and offer affordable advertising in difficult times. This is our 25th edition of Eden Local, which is our 37th publication in less than two years. These are small numbers compared to the well established local media, however, from a distribution of 6,000 copies to a 58,000 distribution, this level of growth was never in the plan. My thanks to the 16 businesses who appeared in our first edition and to the 50 businesses here today. Welcome to your Eden Local community magazine. Whilst the weather out there is unpredictable and the summer is over we have a whole range of seasonal features to keep you warm and to make you think, ‘I didn’t know that’? Over the last month I have travelled a good few miles with the launch of our sister publication; Border City Times into Carlisle and the extension of Lakes Local into Cockermouth. Here in the Eden Valley, I have discovered more local foods, whilst some, due to the poor summer, won’t be around this autumn and winter. The carrots have arrived at Carleton Farm and for the first time in many years the local Penrith Co-op Society has a local product with its own label, sourced less than 2 miles away; steeped in tradition, they can be seen just across the page here on the left. One of my favourite experiences has been sampling local products, but meeting people, sharing their many stories and listening and talking is even more rewarding. Lee Quinn

More BANGS for your bucks! “Value for money” is a phrase oft repeated and over-used, particularly in business. But it matters - particularly in the current economic climate. The biggest temptation when a business is under financial pressure is to slash costs and sacrifice quality; that can be false economy where cutting corners might well achieve short term gains but more than likely result in long term pain. You may soon find your business imitating a Catherine Wheel, producing loads of noise and sparks whilst going nowhere and then quickly fizzing to a halt. Quality advice from your accountant is vital to keep your business moving. Anyone who has seen our website will see our headline - “Experience is one thing you can’t get for nothing”. That means if you are serious about your business then you will be prepared to invest money in your accountant. Here at Full Circle we can provide revealing insights into your business, offer sound advice and analysis and suggest effective solutions to problems. We will examine and challenge your business ideas and identify the potential within, help your business succeed and generate good profits whilst minimising business taxation. We might just

provide the right rocket where it’s needed! Very few people have money to burn, so we invite you to have a chat with some of our clients and find out how you would benefit from the Full Circle experience.

Full Circle Accountancy can make it all plane sailing - contact Jonny Miller on 01768 580058 or email hello@fullcircleaccountancy.co.uk.

Your Choice to Choose Your Voice It’s now time to make your choice about your voice in the community Two years ago, I wrote the first few lines about launching a campaign for Penrith and the surrounding areas to have its own Community Radio station. One year ago Eden FM Radio Ltd, a not for profit, business run by local volunteers had set up a base in the Cumbria Mini Centre site at Ullswater Road and it switched on its hired transmitter and broadcasted for 28 days on the 87.7 FM frequency. It was only made possible by the support of local businesses and organisations in the community we serve and of course a bunch of totally committed enthusiasts and wannabe radio presenters. Remaining online as an internet radio station from that time, Eden FM Radio rebuilt it’s studios in January 2012. In July Eden FM switched on again for another 28 days. Why only 28 days again? Unfortunately they are rules and you can only do two short term RSL (Restricted Services Licenses) per year. To be closer to the community and increase access to the community Eden FM has now commenced the build of its studio in the centre of Penrith. Retaining its home at Ullswater Road where its main Studio One is sited, its production and training studio. Eden FM Radio has a new site on 2 floors at EdenLocal

Sandgate, which consists of an office and the eventual town studio, which we hope will assist more with our aims to be a hub of communication in the community. In my last update I communicated that by the end of 2012 Eden FM Radio would be applying for a fulltime community radio license with an FM frequency. This process has now started. In my experience with radio, which only began in February 2006, I have been fortunate enough to have been involved in this process. There are no guarantees but if you believe we should be considered please write to us now, outlining the reasons why you believe your community should have a community radio station and why you think it should be Eden FM Radio. It might be that you have seen the team out in the community supporting an event in your town or village. It might be that we have helped support your event through broadcasting on the airwaves. It’s now time to make your choice about your voice in the community For details of how you can help call us on 01768 899101, email us on admin@edenfm.co.uk or log on to our website at www.edenfm.co.uk for more details.

The summer is over and with winter fast approaching, we are all starting to think of preparations for the Winter; It’s an expensive business keeping our properties warm and cosy over the long Cumbrian winters and as the price of electricity, gas, oil and even wood and coal continues to rise year on year it is time to look at the alternatives What are the main sources of alternative renewable heat and electricity available to help reduce our domestic bills today and for the future ?

Solar PV (Solar Electric) is still one of the best investments that you can make. Solar PV saves on your electricity bills and generates a financial income guaranteed for the next 20 years earning and saving up to £1000 per year annual return on investment. 4 KWp domestic systems. Approx. cost £7000

Solar Thermal ( Solar Hot water ) depending on your hot water usage and life style a solar thermal ( Hot water System) can provide between 60-80% of your total hot water demand. Approx. cost £5000

Biomass & wood pellet stoves Wood-fuelled heating systems, also called biomass systems, burn wood pellets or logs to provide warmth in a single room or to power central heating and hot water boilers. Pellet stoves and boilers burn pellets from a hopper either attached to the stove or detached up to 15 m away. Pellet boilers and stoves are fully automated in the same way your gas or oil burner is with full thermostatic control. They can even work in conjunction with your existing oil or gas boiler. No need to replace your existing system. Wood Pellets are clean, cheap, reliable and easy to use. A wood-fuelled boiler for could save you over £600 a year. Domestic biomass boilers are eligible for a £900 grant. Prices for a domestic application range from £3000 - £20000 depending on size of system

Its About Raising Awareness I’m not sure why you would, but if you put in a search on the web for Cancer Awareness Month, you will find many awareness campaigns. Recently in the November Lakes Local, we featured an article on oral cancer by Simon Welch of the Fitz Park Dental Practice in Keswick, in preparation for Mouth Cancer Awareness Week 11th November 2012 to 17th November 2012. This is available to read free online at www.cumbrialocal.co.uk and hard copies are available from the Cumbrian Local Publications office in Sandgate. As we come to the end of October, we had Secondary Breast Cancer Awareness Day on 13th October. On 15th July, I attended a major day in the life of thousands of joggers, walkers and runners, in a sea of pink taking part in the Race for Life to help beat cancer. It’s not a sweeping statement when we say we all know someone we love or may have loved and lost in a battle with cancer, or we know someone who has fought and come through it. How do you turn what sometimes is such a negative into a positive? Over a year ago, I met Alan Walton and his mam. Alan sadly lost his dad through Prostate Cancer when he was just 58. Many across the area served by Eden Local would know or have heard of Jim Walton. Alan discussed with me the Graham Fulford Charitable Trust. Graham has been a key driving force in helping raise funds and raise awareness and on a positive note from his base in Warwick, with the Walton family and a group of friends and volunteers, they set up testing in Penrith. Alan has been involved in fund raising which included a cycle ride from Blackpool to the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Men aged 45 – 75 are invited to take a type of screening test I suppose you could say. It’s a simple pin prick in the finger and a blood test, using a PSAwatch Bioscan which is a hand held machine giving results in 10 minutes. PSA blood testing we know is not an infallible test, but it is the best we have got at the moment.

There are around 32,000 new cases of Prostate Cancer diagnosed in the UK each year Of those, some 10,000 men lose their lives primarily due to the Cancer having spread outside of the Prostate Gland If caught early, Prostate Cancer can be treated with excellent future prognosis for the patient From what I have witnessed ‘first hand’ and discussing the many forms of cancer, a lot needs to be done about raising awareness and letting people know. A lot can be achieved by early detection. I did have a PSA test in the summer organised locally in Penrith. The test quite simply is as described, then you have a short wait and then you get a brown envelope. Fate is in your hand. Thanks to much work by local people, volunteers’ time, we now have regular PSA testing in Penrith every month and in 2013 the team hope to do a regular PSA testing once a month in Penrith and complete a PSA test in a village in Eden once a month. The test is free, but worth a donation when you have it. For me it was an opportunity for peace of mind for me and my family. I had a coffee with Kath Liddle who helps organise the teams and the testing. I wanted to understand what they do and find out what I could do to assist. I won’t be jumping on a bike to Paris, but as a local, community magazine we will be, on a regular basis, keeping you updated with where the testings are taking place. The next date we have been given is 7th November at the Masonic Hall here in Penrith. Please drop Kath an email at kathliddle63@ hotmail.co.uk if you would like to attend as numbers are limited and have to be booked in. If you would like the PSA testing team to come to your village in 2013, you need to let them know now. All the team requires is a suitable size facility like a village hall and they do try to test in the region of 30 – 40 men in one evening.

There is a Certain Warmth

We have all seen the news about increases relating to heating our homes this winter. Do you have an open fire or a multi-fuel burner? I took some time out with Fraser, the owner of Hearth and Home (Cumbria) Ltd in Brunswick Road. It would seem there may be some simple solutions to saving money, ideas that could help you to budget for heating your home, but more importantly, having the right multi-fuel stove and central heating is a good start. Prior to settling in to Hearth and Home just over a year ago, Fraser was a heating engineer for 25 years. I didn’t know that, did you? Sizing up the room is key; taking simple wall to wall measurements and height; then taking a picture of the current fireplace you have is a good starting point. You can drop this into Fraser or email this to him. Choosing the right stove is important. A stove is a key interior design feature. Modern or rustic can work, but traditional isn’t the only option for the centre piece of the room. From the information supplied, Fraser can calculate and estimate a cost while you wait, which will give you an idea of the budget you will need for the full installation. Did this happen when you purchased your stove?

2 some are as low as 10.9%, which has a much better effect on heating your room and your pocket long term. Adding a stove to a house currently heated by oil or lpg, could pay for itself in as little as 3 - 4 yrs and a good quality stove should have a life span of 25 – 30yrs. There may be better ways to burn money, however, the benefits of the right installation, with the right calculation and the professionalism offered by Hearth and Home (Cumbria) Ltd are evident. The right stove, with the right room with immediate saving.

Did you know that with an open fire it’s estimated that 75% or more of the heat goes up the chimney. With a stove it’s reduced to, generally around 25% but

Cold Start Could Mean no Start

Electrical problems in cars can be among the most frustrating and expensive to diagnose and repair. Some can be quickly repaired whilst others can leave you stranded in the middle of nowhere or even worse stranded on the motorway hard shoulder. Which may not be so bad in the summer but with the onset of winter, now that the clocks have been turned back, can be much more of a problem. Motorlec are specialists in Auto Electrical repairs and installations. Diagnosis of simple solutions can sometimes mean prevention of a major problem later. Having an electrical check over can lead to savings and by carrying a few basic spares you will be better prepared for a problem that could be waiting to happen. Here are three common electrical problems that can be easily rectified;

Blown Fuse A blown fuse(s) can mean that a whole circuit is not functioning. This could be all of your lights. It’s a good idea to keep a set of spare fuses in your emergency roadside kit. These are always in stock at Motorlec.

Battery Failure Car batteries can fail without warning. Motorlec can check your battery and they stock a comprehensive range of batteries for commercial and domestic use.

Alternator Problems Sometimes these can be tested on the vehicle and sometimes they have to be removed. One sign is a new battery that won’t hold its charge. If you suspect that your charging system is giving out, it’s worth a trip to Steve at Motorlec for a test to put your mind at rest.

Approaching the close of the year, it’s been very encouraging to see the rise in activity in the last three months! Viewings are up and the rate of sales has been increasing slowly. More buyers have been committing themselves to their move, with prices becoming more realistic and a realisation that, if you sell, you’re buying in the same market. It’s all in the great service we provide, with the best visual presentation. Natalie Sayer has joined our side as a full time valuer to strengthen our business and we’re looking forward to the New Year. Now is a great time to start planning your next move.

Making the best of the closed season

During the summer we almost had, we saw the odd clear day, but did you manage to play much golf? Did you make the most of those long evenings? I discussed the importance of out of season golf with Craig Goodfellow, the professional PGA Golf tutor at Penrith Golf Centre and Driving Range. Two words used a lot in our conversation were ‘common sense’. The traditional summer season of your five mile walks around the course playing golf is drawing to a close and the weather is getting colder and the daylight hours shorter. Whether you play regularly, in competitions or just for a social

or a break away from it all, we ask the question - are you just a good weather golfer? For those of you who take a break, think again. For those of you who are thinking of waiting for the good weather to start, it’s possible it won’t ever happen! From the end of October through to spring, it is a key time to reflect on your previous season’s performance, gather your thoughts of what you did achieve and what could be better next year. One tip from Craig is that if you hang up your clubs this winter and don’t come back until the spring, by the time you do get back into the swing of it, you’ll be back where you finished at the end of this summer season. As Craig explained to me ‘practice makes permanent’. Sessions are now being booked - one to one coaching and group coaching. Now is an opportunity to reflect on your game and review how you could improve your game for the start of the next summer season. Setting yourself targets for the winter is key to a successful season. As described to me, a good off season is a good on season. Whilst you may think there is no room

for improvement, there is always an opportunity to look at different techniques. Would a tennis player purchase a new racket before a match? Would a football player put on a new pair of boots before going on the pitch that he or she hadn’t worn before? The winter season is a good time to review yourself, how you play and what equipment you have. Over the coming months during this winter season, Craig is going to share some key tips with Eden Local, that we hope will help to improve your game, so that if you do come out to play your golf, when the clocks go forward so will your golf.

Not Just a Golf Shop

Golf fashion has taken on a more relaxed approach over the past few years with the introduction of spikeless trainer style golf shoes like the Adidas Adicross shoes (mid - right) and brands such as Lyle & Scott introducing cardigans, hoodys, chinos and dress shirts to their golf collection (top right). This has allowed us to offer a full range of clothing that whilst being golf based can be worn for a variety of sports such as football, running and going to the gym or can be worn as casual every day clothing and even out on the town. This is the direction we will continue to follow in the future and next year we will be extending our product range even further to include hoodys, T-shirts, sunglasses, shorts and flip flops in keeping with seasonal trends. All of our clothing and accessories can be viewed online by visiting the following links:

Walking with Keith Wood

Kings How and the Bowder Stone A short steep climb to the commanding viewpoint of Kings How, returning past the geological wonder of the Bowder Stone. 1. From the National Trust Bowder Stone Car Park, leave through one of the pair of gates at the back of the upper Car Park. Take the left hand gate on a fairly clear path through the birch trees heading towards a displaced giant slab of rock, fallen from the crag on the right at some time in the past. Continue on the path through the light woodland, gently rising to the remains of an old slate quarry. 2. Follow the clear path forward round the base of Kings How, swinging around to the right shortly after leaving the slate quarry. After a short climb, a small grassy plateau is reached, marked by another huge rock fallen from the crag. Continue on through the bracken slightly downhill now heading towards a drystone wall. Through a gate in the wall, continue to follow the path through the birch trees on these lower slopes. 3. The path crosses a stream before the path markedly steepens to start to head up the fellside through the trees. Repaired in many places, this popular lakeland path rises relentlessly through the mixed woodland on its journey to the heather covered upper slopes. After the steep climb, the path levels out and crosses a wooded glade passing into the open and continues to swing around to the right. Ignore a stile over a fence to the left and keep on the stony path which starts to rise again. After another climb through the trees the path flattens out and opens out onto a heather clad bowl with the rocky heather faced summit to the front. This bowl is marshy in places but the path skirts around on the right, keeping the feet dry. Cross over the stream flowing out of the marsh and the path once again starts to climb. The route levels out again on a grassy path through more silver birch and starts to swing to the left just before a wall and then climbs again. Continue on the path to the summit passing by a stone plaque to King Edward VII.

and the views open out to the north across Derwent Water to Skiddaw. From the summit the path continues over the fell heading south towards Glaramara, immediately starting to lose height and in the middle ground you can see a drystone wall which is the next point on the route. Dropping down the slope the path levels off as it meets a right to left path with a lonely silver birch, take the right hand path heading towards Borrowdale through the bracken on a green path. The path swings back round to the left and continues heading south towards the wall, losing height all the time. 5. The path soon reaches the drystone wall, turn right and continue on the path heading down the fellside with the wall on your left. Before long re-enter the upper reaches of the Borrowdale woodland, the path descending steeply down the fellside into Borrowdale. Pass through a collapsed drystone wall and continue heading down the steep sided slopes. The path heads south again towards Glaramara which feels like the wrong direction, but stick with it as the path reassuringly swings back around to the right. The busy road at the bottom can soon be seen. 6. The path reaches the road at a stile over a wire fence with the river at the other side of the road. Cross the stile and turn right to walk beside the road around the corner. At a footpath sign ‘Public Bridleway Bowder Stone’, pass through a gate on the right side of the road to pick up the clear stony path running parallel to the road through the trees towards the Bowder Stone. 7. At the Bowder Stone, climb the steps to top before continuing on the path to return to the

Getting Ready for winter? by Lee Quinn

It was a rainy day, so I was off into the Devonshire Arcade. As a man, I can honestly say I don’t do ladies clothes shops. As the editor of the local magazine, however, I do. I had my reasons, so to all those men out there, here is the experience shared. I met Jo Cooper, the owner and proprietor of Bags and Hats for 29 years. What started as a single unit selling accessories, just grew and grew into a bigger unit which is now three units. Gentleman, that’s the size of big a big triple garage! Ladies, this is wall to wall classic clothes with wall to wall handbags, clutch bags, of every style, which begs the question, why go to Carlisle? Over 200 hats and Paul our photographer (okay I wasn’t the only man in the shop), was fascinated by the range of fascinators! A shop cultivated from the early 80s when hats for a princess became hats of fashion and the trend continues today. Accessories, gloves for every occasion, short, long, silk, woolly and jewellery for every age and every occasion. Wraps, scarves, shawls to cover those shoulders on the way to that black tie New Years Eve do – it’s all here. Gentleman - it was an experience. Ladies - it must be a type of paradise. Amongst the traders of the Arcade, we have Eden Valley Chiropody & Podiatry. I took the weight off my feet to discuss with Graham Sylvester the Podiatrist his work and why he set up in the Devonshire Arcade 21 months ago. Graham, who has an honour’s degree in podiatric medicine and is registered with the HPC, decided that the arcade was an obvious choice, being accessible for patients, and with good ‘footfall’ through the arcade for potential clients. Grahams’ business has developed very well, offering a thorough, professional and informative service. His treatments predominantly cover nail and skin conditions but as I understood from Graham, he assesses foot problems that can be associated with back and limb problems, diabetes and many other ailments. I was shocked to learn how small problems can lead to much bigger problems! Many of Grahams’ clients remark that ‘if your feet are bad, you feel bad all over’. Grahams’ EdenLocal

patients span all generations, but one thought I was left with: 20% of people over 45 have foot problems that will require attention at some stage. Maybe time for a winter warm? After almost two years, the Soup Shop is now well established as a regular amongst Penrith’s lunchtime eateries. Offering a simple selection but a broad range, the eclectic flavours span from the simple, wholesome and homely - Pea and Ham, Lentil and Vegetable, Leek and Potato - to the worldly horizons of Moroccan Vegetable, Tomato and Basil and Thai Sweet Potato. The ethos here is to do one thing well and the freshly made selection of 6 to 9 soups changes daily, accompanied by home baked breads from The Crafty Baker. Other produce comes from within the Arcade. They measure distance food travelled here in feet and not in miles! Also now offering a range of cakes, scones and tray bakes (with any coffee or hot drink for only £2.00) - on a cold day in Penrith, what more could you ask for? Soup Hotline 01768 864291 - pre-recorded menu - Open Daily from 9am to 4pm, thank you Paul for a fantastic choice you can eat in or take out. We have covered head to toe and that warm winter taste and as we turn back the clocks for winter, we are talking Arcade Pet Shop. I went in for a chat with Misha Earl who has been running the Pet shop for 16 years and is helped by her sister Yvonne. Thinking on a daily basis, we had most bases covered when it came to food to consume, treats, snacks, bedding, homes for all those small pets and it could not be Christmas without toys for your favourite furry, fluffy or feathered friend. Aquatic foods, indoor and outdoor and whilst there was a huge selection of Budgie and Parrot food, the selection for wild birds and squirrels was one of the largest displays. Something that did catch my eye and at this time of year essential, wasn’t just the range of coats, jumpers and jackets for some of our 4 legged friends, but the fluorescent collars, leads, line coats, tags and generally be seen items that reflect the season and can save lives for pets and their owners out on those dark mornings and evenings.

Eden Valley and North Lakes Home Comforts Guide

As I have already mentioned on page 14, on 7th January 2013 we will be posting through your door our first Eden Valley and Lakes, Home Comforts guide. Will it be yet another design and interiors magazine? Certainly that is not the intention. The focus is on the word home; we have a whole list of headings ranging from traditional home improvement ideas, products and services through to working from home, shopping from home and not forgetting how the home looks both inside and out. Importantly we will be seeking out what we can get delivered locally in the area from local independents.

Eden Valley & North Lakes

Home Comforts Guide

Mobility, security, safety and energy at home are all areas that (excuse the pun) all come under one roof. We’ll be presenting simple affordable solutions from local suppliers. Other areas to be featured include; home entertainment, hobbies, small holdings, outbuildings and how to make the best of the space you have. We’ll have editorials and advertorials from local businesses. If you can think of a section you think we should include then drop us a line. To get this publication right I will be pulling in some expert advice and I will be gathering key pointers and advice from businesses and people that know everything there is know about our most prized possession. I’ll be asking Nick Miller, the owner of Eden & Country Estates, to once again give us his contribution as he gets to see more homes than most. We’ll also be sharing the experiences of the many people that work from home and will be looking at the financial implications of working from home. EdenLocal
