Fine Fettle
Afternoon! Or morning/evening etc.
A smaller newsletter this week, mainly because time got away from me. Still plenty of what happened this week from the bay to the borders (© BBC Radio Cumbria jingle team) though.
If you like what I’m doing, please tell a friend, casual acquaintance, or possibly a workplace rival? It’s really easy to subscribe.

Coming up...
  • Cumbria Police face scrutiny from the Independent Office of Police Conduct after an armed man who was involved in a stand off with officers died of self-inflicted wounds.
  • A new boss is moving his boxes in at Brunton Park… but West Cumbria’s champion speedway team won’t get to defend their title.
  • Another blow for Barrow’s high street - Marks and Sparks say they’re shutting shop for good.

Finally
I’ve been mostly working on videos for BBC Cumbria’s social media since the start of the year.
We put up a great one this week about a Carlisle cafe which is helping out those in need of some food or a hot drink.
Also… What does the Princess Royal have in common with Rihanna? They’re now both proud owners of New Balance trainers.
