In this edition:

Welcome to the latest edition of 'Postcard from the Lakes'. It feels like we are already well into 2022 with the Christmas break fast becoming a distant memory.

Whilst we await the arrival of the traditional harbingers of Spring, snowdrops, lambs and the welcome return of longer and warmer days, I'm delighted to announce that we welcome new life on the farm as a litter of baby piglets arrive in rude health and fine voice! I compete with them in my video diary in this edition so my apologies if some of my words go astray; a fight that I was always destined to lose with hindsight.
This week sees the release of the Government’s response to The Glover Review of Protected Landscapes and the publication of our initial assessment of its content and recommendations.

We draw nearer to the start of the Dark Skies Cumbria Festival as we add more events and online activities providing plenty of opportunities for you to join us in celebrating Cumbria's Dark Skies.

Our volunteers are crucial in helping us to look after and manage our land and we're delighted to be providing an expanded schedule of opportunities for people to get involved in a wide range of activities 2022.

Our Westmorland Dales team has put together some great resources for anybody interested in the geology of the area as well a a free online talk and walks to provide an insight into the role of last Ice Age in shaping the landscape of the Westmorland Dales.

Thank you as always for your continued support. The work and activities that we undertake and feature in these updates would not be possible without it.

With very best wishes,

Douglas Chalmers, Chief Executive
