|I would like to buy some of my Christmas presents, sourced from Cumbria. Rather better to ‘pump’ some money into the local economy there, than perhaps buy imported goods.|
It would be a good Christmas present to the locals too, in effect.
Problem: there does not appear to be any website which gives a comprehensive overview of what the area has to offer.
Obvious, but a bit restricted, solutions might include buying calendars depicting Lake District views, to be sent to overseas friends and relatives, and thus in effect acting as sales promoters for the tourism industry in the future.
But what else? Kendal Mint Cake? Cumberland sausages?
The Lakeland website at
is interesting, but a bit tangential [except for the link to another site for making donations] as the products there do not seem to come from Cumbria itself.
Anybody any other ideas, include website links?
