I am a 53 year old man who lives near Alston in the north-east of Cumbria, where I have lived for most of my life. I work as a free-lance Book-keeper. I and my father now live alone after my mother passed away in January 2021.
In 1992 I graduated from Lancaster University with a degree in Environmental Science and I lived in Lancaster for 14 years afterwards. I used to regularly watch BBC North West Tonight and can remember my dismay whilst studying at Lancaster University when, on 27th September 1991, I discovered that BBC North West Tonight chopped- off all but southernmost Cumbria: “No more news from Home [near Alston] whilst at University”, I sighed!
