I T IS more blessed to give than receive, but is it? What about Christmas, when people run up debts to buy the latest technology only to see the queues at customer services wanting refunds on Boxing Day, or those who see Christmas as the season for ‘what can I get’?

THIS week has been all about the ‘mo’. The fiance, who can barely muster himself to get a haircut most of the time, has embraced ‘Movember’ – where men grow a moustache for a month to raise awareness of men’s health – and now spends an inordinate amount of time looking at himself in anything reflective.

I would like to alert readers to the county council's proposal to introduce on-street parking charges to Cumbria’s market towns. This proposal flies in the face of all of the studies done into high street shopping decline in recent years. The number one factor for empty shops and lost town centres is parking cost, usually caused by excess charging from short-sighted councils. Up until now Cumbria County Council has realised the damage that the introduction of on-street parking charges would do. Not anymore! Budget Proposal, theme 4, proposition 29 of the county’s draft budget will introduce parking charges, ticket machines and all the costs that go with it to Cockermouth (and other towns) streets. This would be disastrous for our high streets and great news for the out of town supermarkets. In the long (and short) term it can only bring increased costs in its wake. Can I urge your readers to write into Cumbria County Council’s consultation process at Our area; Our future, Cumbria County Council, The Courts, Carlisle, CA3 8NA, quoting Theme 4, proposition 29, on street parking charges. I know I speak for Cockermouth businesses in appealing for your readers help in this, but many of your readers may also want to support their own local traders in this way.

MOST Grange-over-Sands residents surveyed about the future of the town’s historic lido say they would like to see it brought back to life as a community asset - and, of these, a sizeable majority believe the best way of doing this is to recreate it as an open-air swimming venue.
