We have received extensive media coverage from our local media, including a selection that can be viewed by clicking on the links on this page. Since November 2002 we have appeared in the Cumberland News (www.cumberland-news.co.uk) and the News and Star (www.newsandstar.co.uk) many times, but some articles are no longer viewable on the web.

We have also appeared on BBC Look North in two major segments on June 16 and 17, 2003 after they sent a reporter to India to film our building work, and several shorter ‘update’ segments over the last year. Our work was also featured in Cumbria Life Magazine in August 2003, number 89.
