IT is welcome news to hear educators across Furness predicting a boost for the area’s youth, thanks to the planned £350m biopharmaceutical plant at GlaxoSmithKline.
We hope the plant will encourage the next generation to stay in the area, with highly skilled employment opportunities on our doorstep and the town of Ulverston going from strength to strength.
In the past, youngsters may have been forced to move away for employment, reluctantly leaving behind this beautiful part of the world we are lucky to live in.
Let’s hope this is all set to change, with future generations remaining here, making the most of the opportunities on offer and adding further to the area’s already-talented workforce.
UP and down the country, people of all ages donned their trainers yesterday to take part in the Sport Relief Mile.
Young and old seized the opportunity to get active, raise money and more importantly, change lives.
Here in Furness and the South Lakes, it was no different, with hundreds of runners completing the mile in glorious sunshine or taking part in events held earlier in the week.
Well done to everyone involved, let’s hope the money raised will make a big difference to the lives of others.
