Farron Supports Local Shop Launch
South Lakes MP Tim Farron yesterday attended the opening of a new shop in Windermere selling local 'Made in Cumbria' products.
The new shop will be based in the Windermere Information centre, which has joined forces with 'Made in Cumbria' to support local businesses following the recent floods. Part of their premises will now be dedicated to showcasing local 'Made in Cumbria' produce which will be sold to both tourists and residents.
Tim said: "This is an exciting new scheme, which will give local independent businesses a welcome boost following the difficult period they have been through. This sends out a clear message that Cumbria is 'open for business', and provides a fantastic showcase for local Cumbrian produce."
