We made a splash with our fancy new gazebo at the ‘All England Stone Skimming Championships’, a South Cumbria Rivers Trust fundraiser, at Fell Foot Park this August. The park’s shore was packed with participants enjoying the skimming, other stone related games, lake dipping for mini-beasts, food and drink. We had lots of great conversations about our work and picked up new e-bulletin contacts – welcome! Whilst we chatted our younger guests created some spectacular Windermere Reflections crowns with all their favourite ‘lakey’ things on them.
This was one of several ‘summer outings’ where we met and talked to lots of people, we had a stand at Langdale Gala, Ambleside Sports, a very muddy Hawkshead Show and Grasmere Sports. We look forward to seeing you there next year (if not before J).
