NEWS from 2015

Radio Two Breakfast Show host Chris Evans has hailed a South Lakeland village as a ‘thimbleful of diamonds’. He was said to have caught ‘Cartmel fever’ as news broke that L’Enclume had been voted Britain’s best restaurant.
The DJ ‘raved’ about the cluster of food-and-drink-oriented businesses in the pretty Lakes village, including Cartmel Village Shop – home of Cartmel Sticky Toffee Pudding.
Shop owner Jean Johns said: “It’s wonderful to hear Chris champion Cartmel and all its great businesses and produce.
“We sent him a hamper full of goodies and we’ll always make sure there’s a hot pork pie and Sticky Toffee Pudding ready for him when he next visits”

CARTMEL TRUST

The Cartmel Trust was formed in 2007 to preserve the historical, architectural and natural heritage of the village and its surrounding area.  It has since merged with the Cartmel Amenities Trust and has been involved in establishing the children’s play park, the monthly Cartmel Food Market, and organising the popular annual Guy Fawkes bonfire and fireworks.  The trustees currently are Charles Godwin (chairman), Michael Rawsthorn, David Unsworth, Lesley Unsworth and Canon Robert Bailey, who are supported by several keen younger members of the community.  The trust would welcome any new volunteers and donations to help to further its work.
