From our reporter JASON RUSHWORTH.
Lamplugh Lasses have been showing how to enjoy the lakes responsibly.
Members of Lamplugh Women’s Institute Cumbria have begun holding weekly walks around our part of the world today, while still observing social distancing.
They have just completed the first of many walks to boost ladies mental and physical health before the weather changes this weekend.
The Institutes national events have all been cancelled for this year, but local Lakeland walks by the local branch are now classed as safe.
Loweswater Lake was the debut walk. Its hoped that that many more socially safe events can be organised this Summer by the lasses.
In February, the Lamplugh WI organised an open day at Frizington library involving local schoolchildren, for a special reading day.
They tell us its not all about Jam and Jerusalem. In 2015 The institute celebrated 100 years of existence here in the county.
