Carlisle Guide issue 48 September – October

Normally I’m one of those people that sees the Christmas stuff in shops at this time of year and shakes my head in utter disbelief.  I’ll sneer and wonder what the world is coming to… before grabbing a packet of mince pies anyway.    But I can confirm we are heading into the home stretch […]

West Cumbria Guide 17 August – September 2019

This summer the Guide celebrates its twelfth birthday and a lot has happened since our first magazine went to press. Back then Donald Trump was a reality TV star, Boris Johnson was not yet the mayor of London and Prince Harry was still serving in the army.  Ipad’s weren’t around.  Neither was Instagram, Air Bnb, […]

West Cumbria Guide 16 June – July 2019

Welcome to the Great British summer. As usual, so far it’s delivered the usual mix of grey skies and maddening rain with a bit of patchy sunshine. Still, a little bit of inclement weather is not going to stop Cumbrians from getting out into the great outdoors. But when you live in an area as […]

Carlisle Guide Issue 45: March / April 2019

Normally, at this time of year I’d expect to try and rouse everyone from their winter slumber by promising happier times, big events and sunnier days ahead.  The weather should be cold, wet, icy, windy and (of course) grey.  It’s the time of year we need extra vitamin D because we haven’t seen the sun […]

The days are starting to slowly stretch out now.  When I leave the office at the end of the day there’s some light left on the horizon and it’s comforting to know the longest nights are behind us for another year. What does 2019 hold in store for you? Maybe you’d like to make it […]

If you’re anything like me then your new year resolutions are probably a thing of the past by now.  I don’t know what your excuse is but I have a problem with my willpower and I might do something about it next year. But for those that have kept their resolutions, well done, keep at […]

West Cumbria Guide Issue 13: December 2018 – January 2019

All of a sudden we find ourselves with only a couple of weeks left in 2018. Let’s face it, when you throw in Christmas, school holidays and New Years Eve then it’s practically 2019 already. Where does the time go? It feels like it was only yesterday we were sweltering through one of the best […]
