Slow Life took a turn in the fast lane this week. We have had a quite a coup in getting support for our campaign to save the TICs. After the Westmorland Gazette gave such prominence to my call for public funding to be preserved the story was featured on the Cumbria Radio Breakfast show and on the BBC evening news (see video). Jean Fry, our President, took my place. The Gazette has published today a letter from Ian Stevens the head of Cumbria Tourism pledging full support and I‘ve had similar letters from our MP Tim Farron, from Gareth McKeever the Tory candidate and from Brendon Jameson the Council Leader. It looks as though Lakes Hospitality may have to take over the running of Windermere TIC ourselves and we have put forward a radical proposal to the council. Watch This Space.
