Do you have anything on at half term?

We have our own free holiday sports programme but we are happy to promote any sporting opportunity in the Borough.  The more the merrier!

We have this website,
we have over 2500 Facebook friends
and we send a weekly email to hundreds of local people and organisations. 

If you have some sport at half term, we are happy to promote it for free.

Send your details to Charlotte.  Keep it simple - what is it, where is it, when is it, how much is it, who is it aimed at?  Also any contact details for questions or bookings.

Get on Track Coastal Railway Walks

Join a group of people enjoying trips out to walks, accessible from Barrow Station by catching the 10.10 am train out of Barrow on the first Thursday of each month.

A full programme of monthly 2 to 3 hour walks will run throughout the year on the first Thursday of each month.  Each walk has been mapped out, using every station between Grange and Millom.  The walks are about 5 miles, taking up to 3 hours and can be over rough ground, occasionally very wet underfoot.  Most walks end in the vicinity of an agreeable place to eat and drink.  New walkers will be made very welcome.  Walks start at 10.30am.

6 November  Dalton – Abbey – Roose
4 December  Kirkby – Broughton - Foxfield

The first named is the station where the walk begins, the last named where it ends.  The walk start time coincides with the arrival of the 10.10 train from Barrow.  Trains set off from Barrow in both directions within a minute (or two) of 1010am.

Enquiries to Richard Scott by email or ring 01768 800350 (Cumbria CVS office) or 07519 849 564
