Welcome from the Chair of Trustees

Thanks to you, and all our supporters, 2018’19 was a momentous year for the Partnership as we delivered our biggest programme yet, encompassing arts, access, culture, heritage, nature and tourism.

Our special thanks go to the many wonderful volunteers who make such an extraordinary contribution, getting involved, getting grubby clearing bracken, or dusty in the archives and giving up their time to keep the Bay’s beaches clean.

At the year end, we opened a new chapter exploring the transition from our longstanding relationship with Cumbria County Council to operating as a fully independent Charitable Incorporated Organisation.

Exciting times and great opportunities lie ahead. My thanks to all the staff, partners, funders and to you, for playing your part.

   Richard Greenwood, Chair of Trustees

Comment from the Chief Executive

We are immensely grateful for your support, and that of our communities, landowners, volunteers and partners. Thanks to you, 2018’19 was full excitement. And with so much activity, this annual report just offers some highlights.

In the broader context, the local authorities began working together as the Lancaster and South Cumbria Economic Region, and plans emerged for an Eden Project in Morecambe. All of which offers great opportunities for the Bay to revitalise its image on the national stage. Opportunities we embrace.

Yet, we urgently need to do more, to capitalise on these and other new opportunities, to care for our communities, and to care for the very things that make the Bay special.

We rely on your donations. We do hope you will join us sharing your skills, volunteering and donating, it’s such a rewarding way to show your love of the Bay.

Breeding curlews are in catastrophic decline

Do you have a favourite wader?  I love them all, but I especially love curlews.  They have a magic all of their own with a call that echoes across the landscape. Curlews were once so common, but now are in catastrophic decline.
