On Saturday last in Penrith Cornmarket, Eden District Conservatives launched their nine candidates for the coming May elections, thus creating a first – the first time the party will be contesting all 84 Cumbria County Council seats.

‘This is a really important time in our country’ said Penrith & the Border MP Rory Stewart. ‘With Brexit and with the economy recovering, there is so much more that we can do for Cumbria locally.  Particularly in relation to adult social care, buses and schools, there is a unique opportunity for the Conservatives to take control of local government here and really get Cumbria going again.’
