Fairtrade Fortnight

22nd February – 7th March
Did you know Kirkby Lonsdale is a Fairtrade Town? We raise awareness of and support the trade of Fairtrade products to alleviate poverty by campaigning for a fair system of international trade. We have been allied with Cumbria Fair Trade Network since 2007 and continue to work with Fairtrade Foundation to amplify the voices of marginalised producers globally.
Discover their *free* festival of online events and activities on the Fairtrade website to be entertained, educated and inspired. For the whole calendar,  filled with all sorts of different ways to get involved, click here!

The Lockdown Walks Series

All Lockdown Walks can be found in the ‘Things To Do’ section of our website.

As the Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales National Park, we are bringing to you the Lockdown Walks Series. Collaborating with locals, we are curating a range of walks in and around Kirkby Lonsdale focusing on wellbeing, beauty and the outdoors.

We are uniting the community through these mindful explorations and giving people of all abilities something new to do this Lockdown. For those of you too far to visit, we are offering the experience of Kirkby Lonsdale’s stunning views from the comfort of your own home.

A kind reminder that these walks are intended for locals. Please find inspiration from these nurturing outdoor activities, but don’t travel further than you need for exercise.

Robin Ree’s Photography 

First of all, we would like to thank Robin Ree for his generous and creative contributions: he has been sharing the beauty of Kirkby Lonsdale and the Lune Valley with everyone at home. Robin’s stunning photography can be found throughout the Lockdown Walks Series (where credited) as he captures the distinguishing views of our well-loved countryside. 

Highwayman Hikes

For the first collaboration in our Lockdown Walks Series, we are bringing to you the Highwayman Hikes from the The Highwayman.

Landlady Aimee Sharples will be sharing her passion for walking with the community each week, with a short walk every Thursday and a longer hike on Sundays: “I want to inspire people to get out into the fresh air as I find going for even a short walk every day really helps during these times” 
You can order Click & Collect from the Highwayman pub to collect after your walk every weekend:
Friday 5-8pm
Saturday 4-8pm
Sunday 12-7pm
