21 years in 21 days: Day 8 - 2001
2001 was a difficult year for tourism businesses in Cumbria, and so we were delighted to be able to celebrate our 100th member - Broadrayne Farm.
21 years in 21 days: Day 7 – 2000
A busy year for us with a special mention in the queen mothers' birthday awards, and the chance for us to show off our artistic abilities with an office move!
21 years in 21 days: Day 6 – 1999
A wood near Windermere gets a boost from a sustainable tourism initiative at Booths supermarket, and we hold a national conference 'Tourism and the Environment - Concord Not Conflict'
21 years in 21 days: Day 5 - 1998
Teamwork builds bridge to the past.
21 years in 21 days: Day 4 - 1997
A proud moment for us with a feature article in the Times in 1997, and a great picture of footpath repair in action
21 years in 21 days: Day 3 - 1996
We love this photo of staff at George Fisher and Nurture Lakeland getting stuck in with a litter pick - what a great idea! The event was so successful that it was repeated many times and became known as the 'Winderclean'. Let's hear a big cheer for all our business members who have helped keep our landscape special over the years.
21 years in 21 days: Day 2 - 1995
Just in time for Christmas 1995 the owners of Heart of the Lakes, Sue and Peter Jackson, hand over a check for £1,500 to help the National Trust carry out vital path maintenance.
21 years in 21 days: Day 1 - 1994
We made it despite the Doubting Thomases and are still here today, 21 years later, working in partnership with visitors, communities and local businesses to protect the natural environment.
We are 21!
It's our 21st birthday today, and we are all grown up with a brand new website. Take a look around, we hope you enjoy getting to know us and our work a little better. And over the next 21 days we will be taking a look at our history too...
Reflections from Bob Cartwright: has Nurture Lakeland played it’s part?
In May 2015, Bob Cartwright, Nurture Lakeland’s Vice Chair, stepped down from the Board of Trustees. Bob was one of the founders, in 1994, of the Tourism and Conservation Partnership – the forerunner of Nurture Lakeland. He reflects here on Nurture’s success, the changing environment in which it operates – and on why its role continues to be vital as the Lake District seeks the accolade of World Heritage Site inscription.
Nurture Lakeland is very pleased to welcome two new fundraisers on board this month, Elm House and the Holker Group.

Do you own or manage a holiday cottage? Did you know that, despite only being occupied 30-50% of the year, most traditionally built (pre 1910) holiday cottages have a very high annual energy use? This toolkit is here to help!
