Getting back to my farming roots

In September 2019 Soo and I walked the Cumbria Way with 2 good friends. Along the route I took the opportunity to visit a number of charities who receive funding from the Cumbria Community Foundation which I have the privilege to Chair. Walking along the route provided significant insight to some very different parts of Cumbria and opportunities for a crack. Ranging from the joy of our landscape (particularly when it’s not raining!) to some of the real challenges faced by our communities.
