Dear Residents Welcome to this first edition of your Eden Local Community Magazine. It’s a publication that we hope will have a bright future across the areas it is distributed to. It has several aims and objectives and some of these are explained in the 36 pages of local information you are now presented with. The publication has only have been achieved with the support of local people and businesses in our community. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of those people who have made a contribution, particularly the businesses whom, without their advertising revenue, we would never have got this far. My special thanks must go to Andy Jackson at Reeds Printers, who has been a key player in helping get this project to press and to Derek Cockerel from the Wainrights Society, for providing important local knowledge and contacts. Perseverance with unconditional support from my wife, means we now have our community publication and whilst some may say the hard work starts here, I am a firm believer that many hands make light work. You will see on the final page of our first issue, a list underlining the potential of the magazines we could eventually have. For my youngest daughter who

ventured downstairs in the early hours of the morning recently and said, ‘Daddy you’re up and dressed early’, one day I will explain what can be achieved when small children are in bed! There are just two more people to thank; Val Corbett for some wonderful photographs and this month’s competition prize and last but not least, Chris Miller, someone I have worked with on countless projects, all hours of the day and night and who I count as a good friend but above all a fantastic graphic designer. Thank goodness Chris never sleeps!

An Eden project, with a difference....

Do we need a local magazine coming through our doors? Can local businesses really afford to advertise in the current climate? These are just some of the questions that I have been asked prior to launching the idea of the Eden Local community magazine. I also discussed the idea with my wife and my children. We discussed the idea of sharing good news on a regular basis and above all, something that would fit in with school runs, poorly children and all those things that we do that we don’t list. Starting a new project, which requires generating revenue from the local community at a time when many cuts are being imposed throughout the county and the country as a whole, our family, like many is a part of the present and the future. We wondered whether we, as a family should be taking this on - the stress, the worry and all those things that you would associate with collating a magazine, printing a magazine and distributing it. Well the answer is evident in what you are reading now. Eden Local is now here and we hope it’s a good news read. Our aims are to have local news, stories, articles and events from the community published monthly. It will be written by and supported by local people, local businesses and printed in Penrith. To start with, it will be distributed to over 6,000 households in the post codes CA11 7 and CA11 8. We hope the advertising is affordable and from £14.95 per month it is hoped that local businesses will support this project. We have a lot of ideas and as the editor and co owner of the Eden Local and someone who has run a small family business for nearly 17 years, we value your ideas and any contributions or suggestions for your local magazine. I have, for a number of months discussed this idea with local businesses, schools, organisations and societies . We are EdenLocal

honoured that many of these are here in this first issue and there are more to come. Eden Local is offering low budget advertising, which we hope is not overpowering and the editorial content and quality, which we are hoping to build on in every issue. We want the magazine to have more pages and we want to distribute it to more areas, but this can only be done with the help and support of the local community. We need more stories and on page 33, there is a list of potential features we need your help with. Eden Local is the platform for the community to support the community and we hope this is in some ways reflected in this first issue.

magazine and with this, the launch of a campaign for something totally new.

of the revenue can be generated by on air advertising. You cannot have a single sponsor providing the revenue.

In 2006, Ofcom, the regulator for radio licencing, launched a strategy, which commencing in the north of the UK, worked through 9 regions across the country, inviting applications from the communities in these regions to apply for full time community radio licences. Ofcom has finally arrived in the last area, inviting licence applications for the area inside the M25.

Eden Local is a good news publication. Before the June 2010 deadline, a formal intention was registered for Penrith and the surrounding areas to have its own full-time community radio station. In July 2010, Eden Ltd was registered as a ‘not for profit’ limited company. www. Edenfm.co.uk is where all the questions you are asking now can be answered.

What has this got to do with Penrith or Cumbria? Well, with the whole of the UK completed via the strategy launched in July 2006, Ofcom posted on its website in April 2010 that it would now be reviewing this strategy. Posting a list of regions, which were now not available, any region wishing to consider setting up a community radio station had to formerly register intentions by 10 June 2010.

But here is a thought - the key project underpinning the campaign will be the Eden Local community magazine. Driven by the community, it is the first project to raise the interest in the local community. If the magazine is successful, it will potentially be one of the main sponsors of Eden Fm community radio, off air, advertising income.

Community radio has many rules and regulations. It basically runs legally like any public or private sector radio, however, some clear differences are that a community radio station has to be a ‘not for profit’ limited company and with so many community radio rules relating to transmission and licencing, one other I experienced, was that only 50% EdenLocal

Do you want to be a part of the first ever full time community radio in Cumbria? Community radio is about having your radio, your station, in your community. It’s not owned by a profit making business. It’s owned by the community and shared by the community. It’s not run by shareholders but by a committee, which is made up of the people in the community it serves. We will need volunteers with and without radio experience of all ages, but above all we need to know if the community wants this campaign in the long-term.

Solar Protection, Safety & Security, Energy Efficiency & UV Protection 4 Good Reasons To Read On

Solar Gard Solar protection

Nothing adds life to your home more than great natural light, but it’s also possible to have too much of a good thing. With natural sunlight comes unwanted heat and hotspots, which can really affect your overall comfort and make for a less inviting atmosphere. Solar Gard films reject up to 79% of solar energy - providing you greater temperature stability and comfort while reducing solar heat gain and bothersome glare.

Solar Gard Safety and Security

Your home is more than just a place for possessions. Which is exactly why it’s worth protecting from anything and everything that can do it harm - accidental or not. Specially designed to hold shattered glass in place, Solar Gard Armorcoat does more than just protect you and your family from flying shards, it also provides a deterrent barrier against burglary and storm damage - giving you peace of mind that you, your loved ones and your valuables are safe and protected.

Solar Gard Energy Efficiency

More and more, homeowners are interested in helping our environment and preserving precious

resources. You can make a difference everyday simply by reducing your air conditioning usage. Solar Gard films help you do that by rejecting heat and keeping interior temperatures more controllable and stable. By running your air conditioning less, you consume less energy, reduce your carbon footprint and save money on utilities

Solar Gard UV Protection

Even inside the house, you and your valuables are more exposed to sun damage than you probably realise. Ultraviolet light and solar heat coming through any window can cause fading and irreparable damage to the things you value most. Everything from your expensive artwork and furnishings, to hardwood floors, carpets and custom draperies are at risk - and even more important, so is your skin. Solar Gard films help by filtering visible light, rejecting solar heat and blocking over 99% of harmful UV light - significantly reducing your potential for damage and protecting what you treasure most Local Supply & Installation Eden Locks Ltd.

Vitality of Penrith Champions call for community help to improve Penrith

The new Vitality of Penrith Group Champions are calling on local people to join them at a Beacon Community Event at Penrith Methodist Church on Monday 13 December to contribute ideas and offer practical help to improve the town.

Community Event gives local people the chance to offer help with projects to improve the town. It also presents an opportunity to illustrate past achievements and help local people look to the future.”

Colin Maughan, the Vitality of Penrith Champion for Public Engagement, said: “This is a great opportunity for local people to really influence long term improvements for the town. I am especially excited by the prospect of local people saying how they can get involved in projects to bring about lasting change.”

To ensure the Community Event on 13 December is a success, a variety of innovative ways are being planned to capture people’s views on how Penrith can be improved, these include:

The Vitality of Penrith (VoP) involves organisations from the public, private and voluntary sectors which have been brought together by Eden District Council with the principal aim of securing long-term improvements in the economic performance of Penrith town centre. To take this work forward four themes of activity have been identified and a Champion appointed for each. They are: • Environment and the Public Realm – Peter Ward (PACT) • Culture and Events – Adrian Lochhead (Director, Eden Arts) • Marketing and the Economy – Bob Clark (Chief Executive, CREA) • Community Engagement – Colin Maughan (Editor, Cumberland and Westmorland Herald) “Eden District Council has recently announced that it has made £200,000 available for a two year regeneration programme for Penrith,” said, Councillor Mary Robinson, Deputy Leader of Eden District Council. “The hope and expectation is that this money will be matched by others to make a bigger investment fund. The EdenLocal

phone: 07881 530085

• A video booth • A positive Penrith ‘ideas wall’ • Demonstrations of successful Penrith events from the past Workshops will also be held where people can discuss their ideas with the VoP Champions. Alongside this a ‘community fair’ (consisting of small exhibition tables or ‘stands’) will be available for local organisations to promote their services and show how they can contribute to improving the town. The ‘fair’ will present a positive atmosphere, encouraging an interchange of ideas across the exhibition hall. VoP recognises the importance of the local business community in contributing ideas and support to make any projects a success in the future. Kelvin Dixon, President of Penrith Chamber of Trade, said: “The vitality of any town is more than just its Christmas lights and one or two events. This community engagement event is about effecting real and lasting change, by identifying projects from the community which can be delivered. We have spent too long talking about things. Now is the time for action.”

www.edenlocal.co.uk

info@edenlocal.co.uk

More information about the Community Event will be announced shortly and locals groups and organisation will be receiving information encouraging their members to participate. Cumbria County Councillor Helen Fearon, Chair of the Eden Local Area Committee, said: “The County Council is committed to supporting this event as a real way for the local community to bring their ideas forward. We are delighted that Penrith Methodist Church is donating their facilities for free to host the event and this shows the type of community spirit needed to help Penrith succeed.” The VoP Community Event is taking place at Penrith Methodist Church on Monday 13 December from around 4pm-8pm. If you would like to have a display stand at the event or require more information visit www.eden.gov. uk/vop or tel: 01768 817817.

Around the world 8 times in 365 days What is a mobile phone? In 1980, Space Invaders made its way to the Atari system and became a legend. On the big screen, we could have been watching Airplane!, Elephant Man, Raging bull, Gregory’s Girl or Blue Lagoon. If you were very rich, you may have owned a Betamax video recorder and taped Johnny Logan winning the 25th Eurovision Song Contest, with ‘What’s Another Year’. Billed as the ‘clash of the titans’, Steve Ovett beat Seb Coe to gold in the 800 metres in Moscow. Revenge was sweet in the 1500 metres days later, when Seb Coe took the gold in the 1500 metres in the summer. Nationally, the average house price was ÂŁ23,500. Out on 7 inch vinyl (compact disc ‘CDs’ didn’t arrive commercially until

1982) were records like Geno by Dexy’s Midnight Runners and Brass in my Pocket by the Pretenders. There were sad times in December with the death of John Lennon, the single (Just Like) Starting over, the Christmas No 1, also a group of young lads by the name of Duran Duran signed a deal with EMI. Of course in 1980, we had mobile music with a new gadget called the Sony Walkman! Here in Penrith, at a site some call ‘Busy Bee’, Neil Bousfield started fixing cars and Neil Bousfield Motors then, probably didn’t know that 30 years on NBM, still on this site, would be the success in the community it has grown to be today. It is still a garage and together with an MOT station, it offers

servicing and repairs. When did the coaches appear? Well, it was in the late nineties, following the retirement of the owner of Castle Taxis, with NBM on the same site, that a new venture with 4 to 5 mini coaches started. The handful of vehicles then, has grown to over 20 vehicles today. Serving the community where it is based, working through the week with local authority contracts, transporting our children to school and part of the population around the area.

NBM Travel can cater for private hire, weddings, day trips and days away covering enough distance last year to have been around the world 8 times...

Rediscovering Rheged It’s been an exciting year for Rheged, the highlight probably being their 10th Birthday Party in July! The celebrations started with a bang with their Big Birthday Bash, where the main attraction (and VIP guests) were Peppa Pig and her brother George! Over 4,000 people queued to see the celebrity pair as they met locals and ‘oinked’ with children of all ages. Unfortunately there were no muddy puddles to splash in, but everybody enjoyed themselves none the less! Regular visitors to the Centre were greeted with a very different look as Rheged’s entrance foyer has had quite a bit of a facelift! The new Box Office has been brought into the main entrance area, and now doubles as a brand new Information Centre, answering questions from locals and visitors alike. Complementing the new Information Desk are two new Information Stations, with an Outdoor Adventure Information Station in Mountain Life (outdoor shop) and a Food and Drink Station in the Taste Farm Shop. From these Information Stations and the main Information Desk, well informed staff can help you find and book, not only accommodation, but also over 30 different outdoor EdenLocal

activities, from adrenaline pumping ziplines, to more sedate guided walks. And the changes just keep coming. Rheged have been preparing for Christmas over

of all ages including Brio train sets, micro scooters, classic wooden toys and Airfix kits with everything you need in the box (although, if you’re anything like me, they’ll probably be just as popular with the grown ups). But it’s not just toys, Rheged are also stocking beautiful children’s clothing from the likes of Pili Pala, Toffee Moon, Lily and Sid as well as a large range of Pediped shoes!). Perfect for Christmas Shopping, and with 9 shops, all under one roof and free parking, it really is the hassle free way to get those special little gifts that aren’t so easy to find on the high street. Of course, if all that retail therapy is making you hungry, Rheged have three excellent cafes, where all the food is homemade by an inhouse team of chefs and bakers who use the freshest local ingredients, for instance, all the lamb and beef they use comes from their own farm at Orton, just 15 miles down the road. But enough on the past, and on to the future! Rheged have got another lineup of fantastic events and entertainment in the runup to Christmas with Panto, Live Music from shows such as Camp Rock, Glee and High School Musical in their Class of 2010 stage show, Visit Santa in his Cumbrian Country Cottage, and 3D films on the largest 3D screen in the north west including Shrek Forever, Toy Story 3 and Christmas Carol! But the one we’re most looking forward to is Avatar. Yes, like most people who are into their cinema, I have seen it already, but the opportunity to see it again, in all its Special Edition glory on the biggest 3D screen for miles around is just too good to be true. The Rheged Centre is open from 10.00am to 5.30pm every day (except Christmas, Boxing and New Year’s Day. Parking and Entry to the Centre are free.

Christmas Lights Helvellyn Walk

As part of the fund raising for the Penrith Christmas Lights a walk was arranged up Helvellyn followed with a visit to the Patterdale Mountain Rescue Centre. An intrepid dozen together with two dogs were blessed with fantastic weather as they set off from Glenridding for the ascent. A quick visit to the picturesque Lanty’s Tarn was followed by the long climb up Birkhouse Moor from where the summit and the adjacent “Edges” could be seen. The number of people increased as Striding Edge neared and thoughts of Piccadilly Circus came to mind. Eventually the summit of Helvellyn was gained and “that view” of the Lakes and Eden Valley. Bodies were EdenLocal

The group made their way to the Patterdale Rescue Team Centre to be met team member John Ellerton who talked about the Centre and the activities of the Team before showing the group around building, now 11 years old but still very much state of the art. People on the walk gave donations towards the Lights and also the Team. A memorable day with a few stiff limbs afterwards !!

The Switch On for the Lights is on Sunday 28th November – donations toward the Lights can be sent to Ron Kenyon – Saint and Co., 4 Mason Court, Gillan Way, Penrith 40 Business Park, Penrith – cheques payable to Penrith Chamber of Trade.

Chef/Manager Nick King ‘’The initial demand we experienced after opening was fantastic, if at times a little over-whelming. We literally had to hit the ground running serving over 400 breakfasts and 600 lunches in the first week alone, on opening week we had people queued down the stairs. With a completely new premises and new team it would be fair to say we had our share of teething issues. A year on it’s a different story - we have an experienced, well oiled team in place providing excellent customer service at a much faster pace and consistency’’

Cumberland Sausage on course to achieve PGI status The Cumberland Sausage famous for its long coiled appearance, coarse texture and distinctive seasoning is on course to achieve Protected Geographical Indication status early in 2011. In July the EU approved the Cumberland Sausage Association's application, a major milestone after almost 6 years of campaigning. When the legal process is completed in the new year the Cumberland Sausage will join a small and elite list of PGI protected products including Jersey Royal potatoes, Melton Mowbray Pork Pies, Stilton Cheese, Parma Ham and Champagne. PGI legislation was created by the European Union in 1992 to protect the reputation of regional foods. Philip Cranston "as a member of the Cumberland Sausage Association Cranstons are thrilled that the application has finally been approved safeguarding the future of the Cumberland Sausage and its and long established reputation"

The Wainwright Society ‘There is an argument that the last thing Alfred Wainwright would have wanted is an appreciation society with a website. His idea of a website was a spider-infested cave on the approach to Caw and appreciation was what he felt in his beloved mountains. He never asked anyone to return the compliment.’ Eric Robson Chairman of The Wainwright Society Whether or not Wainwright would have wished it or not, 98 people attended the inaugural meeting of The Wainwright Society, which was held on 9th November 2002 at Ambleside Youth Hostel. This date was chosen as it was 50 years to the day since Alfred Wainwright had penned the first page of his remarkable Pictorial Guides to the Lake District fells. This was followed by a walk to the summit of Dove Crag, the ascent that AW had described on that November evening in 1952. Since that first meeting, the Society has grown in numbers year on year and is fast approaching 900 memberships and includes some notable members such as Julia Bradbury, Sir Chris Bonington, Stuart Maconie, Cameron McNeish and Doug Scott. The primary aims of the Society are to keep alive the fellwalking traditions promoted by Alfred Wainwright through his guidebooks and other publications and to keep faith with Wainwright’s vision of introducing a wider audience to fellwalking and caring for the hills. The Society has raised thousands of pounds for causes which we believe AW would have appreciated and supported. These have included the Mountain Rescue teams, SARDA rescue dogs, Fix the Fells and Animal Rescue, Cumbria based at Kapellan, the animal charity which Wainwright did so much to establish before he died in 1991. Every year since 2005, there has been an annual Challenge, which has been one of the main fundraisers. These have included members climbing all the 214 fells described in the Pictorial Guides and Outlying Fells, and this year’s challenge, The Best of the Rest, which included the walks on the Howgill Fells and in the Limestone Country of the Yorkshire Dales.

QEGS Sponsored Walk Some days it tips it down, sometimes it rains cats and dogs, but when QEGS go for the Sponsored Walk it tips it down and rains cats and dogs. But we still remain in high spirits whatever. Thus when the students set off for their annual Sponsored Walk in September, the rain was falling, the plants were wet and the paths were muddy. The paths then became muddier as 800 people walked the 10 kilometre walk to Dalemain and back. But despite the rain and mud, spirits were high as people walked and chatted with their friends. We started at QEGS, took the bridge over the motorway , went through Stainton, through Dacre and to Dalemain where we stopped for lunch and cakes sold by school and the year 11 girls fundraising for their PE trip to Doncaster, and thanks to our energy boost from the cakes we were able to set off on the return trip back to school. Some people decided that they would prefer to run back to school rather than walk, although that was regarded as an eccentric move by most students. The funniest bit

for most walkers was on the hill just after Dalemain where they could watch their friends sliding down the incredibly muddy hill in their attempt to walk up it. By the time nearly 800 people (and some runners) had scrambled up it, it was a pure mud slide. All participants felt that they had earned their sponsorship money, which the School Council decided will be donated to The Pakistan Flood Appeal and the Starlight charity, which grants wishes to

On December 8th, there will be a fabulous night of live entertainment as several bands, all made up of QEGS students, will be playing a gig, again in aid of the Pakistan Flood Appeal.
