We've now finished posting news and other useful or interesting items about Cumbria for today, and this week.
Here's a reminder of some of today's developments:
- A striking (and pehaps, given the adventurous architecture, controversial) new activity centre for Whitehaven harbour came a step closer with an announcement that the government would cover most of the cost with a £2.45m grant
- If you look closely at the photo of an ugly fly-tipped mess in Workington, you can see correspondence that may have led the council to the culprit, who was handed fixed penalties totalling £700
- And perhaps appropriately, unusually warm sunshine for the time of year prevailed as, across Cumbria, hundreds of people took to the streets to call for more action on the causes of climate change. The protest in Ulverston was particurly colourful, ending with a mass "die-in".
Have a very good weekend.
