    South Lakes MP Tim Farron this week welcomed Kendal Nether ward councillor Clare Feeney-Johnson to Westminster, as she collected an award for being a 'Heat Hero'.

A panel of judges from NEA and Scottish Power came together to select 14 winners of who they felt went 'above and beyond' in their fuel poverty work and you were selected as one of the winners.

    South Lakes MP Tim Farron today used Prime Ministers Question's to demand David Cameron protect Westmorland General Hospital.

    Tim asked the Prime Minister to protect the hospital on the back of news that hospital bosses were looking at 'gifting' the Westmorland General Hospital (WGH) to a social enterprise. Two whistle-blowers said that they believe: "Social enterprise is a euphemism for private companies like Circle who already run one NHS hospital in Hinchingbrooke [in Cambridge]."

  • South Lakes MP Tim Farron visited the site of Grasmere’s new Post Office on Monday morning.
    Article: Apr 9, 2014

    Grasmere residents could have faced an eight-mile round trip to visit a post office when the old site closed last year-but that was averted when a new Post Office was announced for the village.

    The new Post Office, which officially opens today, will be located in The Old Coach House on Stock Lane. Tim was delighted hear the new facility will be located close to the old premises, and will offer the same range of services, and will be accessible by wheelchair users. There will be parking nearby.
