Hello everybody in Cumbria. Whether you have lived here all of your life or just moved here we would like to hear from you.

Please say where you come from and we can start to find each other.

Best wishes Sian from Southlakeland.

I'm born & bred Cumbrian ( or Lancastrian as my Dad still insists!). I'm from Walney originally but moved further inland into the south lakes. Don't want to be more specific!

Hi Holmessweetholmes,

I remember your thread - great that you are joining us here in windy Cumbria.

The Sure Start Centre is very active in the school building so that would be a good start (if you have younger children that is).

Best wishes

Sian

Thanks. My children are already at school, so I'll be looking at local primaries.

Hi readhead. How long have you been in the area? We only arrived a few days ago so trying to find our feet....we don't know anyone at all.

Good luck with baby :-)

I've been over here nearly 7 years now...married a Cumbrian and stayed! Love it here but very close to his family and far from mine!
Hope you're settling in ok smile

Hi anyone and everyone!
Barrow working mam/drinker of tea brew /devourer of cake cake here. Not exactly stuck for things to do but new face's are always good to meet. Plus, I'm always looking for a distraction from pot washing! A change is as good as a rest so they say.

I'm a bit late to this post, but only just discovered the local forums. I moved near Whitehaven two years ago and I'm expecting my first baby in December. I don't know anyone round here with little ones, but looking forward to getting involved locally.
