CUMBRIA - Coverage of Cumbria on the UK Forums

.
Cumbria.


For those members of SSC interested in what is happening in the Cumbria Region, and in how it is being covered on SSC, I thought the below may be of interest.

With the lack of a "North West England" Forum, Cumbria is being covered in a number of threads in the 'communal area' (as it is called) of the "North East England" Forum.

Historically, Newcastle, as well as being the Regional Capital of North East England, has strong links with the Carlisle area in the North West of England, as that region tends to get it's Media Coverage (by the BBC) from Newcastle.


The "North East and Cumbria" BBC Region has been around for a very long time . . .






Here are some external links to websites covering the "North East and Cumbria" as a REGION . . .

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BBC_North_East_and_Cumbria

http://www.tv-live.org.uk/wp/index.p...th-ne-cumbria/


The North East England SSC Forum Communal Area is located here, BELOW the four Internal 'City-led' forums . . .

https://www.skyscrapercity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=2254


The North East England Forum currently includes the following Cumbria "Discussion Threads" . . .

Cumbria Area (inc.Carlisle) Developments - Areas and Subjects NOT being covered elsewhere on Skyscraper City
https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1257809

MEDIA in CUMBRIA - Also, How Cumbria is 'portrayed' in the UK Media
https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1624302

RETAIL - In Carlisle and around Cumbria
https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1624303

PHOTOS - Rural Cumbria and Rural North East England Photography
https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1507509

The Nuclear Industry in the North East and Cumbria - Issues & Developments
https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1574257


The forum also currently has ONE Cumbria "Project Thread" . . .

Whitehaven Harbour Redevelopment | Whitehaven | 4fl | Approved
https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1247923


My reasons posting this information on here today, are . . .

(1) - To make SSC Members aware of the extent of the Cumbria Discussions and Projects that are currently being covered on SSC (that they may not be aware of).

(2) - To let people know WHERE these discussions are taking place, within SSC.

(3) - To INVITE any SSC members interested in Cumbria to join in with these forum discussions, and to help increase the coverage that Cumbria gets on SSC.

(4) - I am fairly certain that there is more going on in Cumbria, of relevance to SSC, than is currently being covered!


Thanks,
NH.

If there are any "closet" Cumbria dwellers out there, would love to see you on the North East England Forum

The Cumbria area is located just underneath the four links to the City-led forums.

Anyone here from Carlisle?

Just (gently) "bumping" this thread, in case there are any new Cumbria Posters out there?

We would love to see you on the North East England Forum (Communal Area) have a look at the threads that are located just UNDER the four links to the four City-led Forums . . .

More Cumbria threads on SSC.


In continuation of previous posts on this thread.

There have been quite a few new threads on Cumbria started recently on the North East England forum.

There are now ELEVEN in total . . .

CUMBRIA posters . . . we need Y O U !!


I'm just "bumping" this thread to see if we can attract a few more CUMBRIA members and posters.



Have a look at the earlier posts on this thread for details of 'Cumbria' topics being covered here on SSC.

At present we are not getting many Cumbria contributions, and while I know that you can't "force" people to join SSC and post on here, I do think that perhaps one of the reasons they don't join is because they are not aware of the Cumbria Discussion Threads that we have.

So, if anyone knows of potential forum members from that part of the world, could you please pass the information on to them, that there are subjects being discussed on here that they could be interested in.


Cheers,

You do realise that Cumbria is a largely rural place and this is an urban forum? I think there lies the problem as to why there aren't many Cumbrians around here. If it was filled with skyscrapers rather than mountains you may have more luck.

The most radical changes in Cumbria will come in the form of environmental reform - there's currently a controversial movement afoot to quell the heavy farming-led land management of the fells and move towards "rewilding", so might be a good idea to make a thread on that and ecological/environment news generally?

Yes indeed, Cumbria is indeed more of a rural county than an urban one, but there is the City of Carlisle, and a few smaller towns located in the County.

Smaller urban areas (as well as some rural ones) go through many of the same "urban experiences" as larger towns and cities, and these are being discussed on the Cumbria threads that we do have.

My reason for writing here, at this time, is to increase awareness of the fact that there is somewhere on SSC where people can discuss Cumbria issues, if they wish.

Hi,

Thanks for that Folly.

Contributions like that are most useful, if you think that a thread like that would be of value, please visit the forum and start it off. I'm sure other posters from that area (we do have some already) would join in.

CUMBRIA THREADS ARE HERE - https://www.skyscrapercity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=2254

The threads are located underneath the links to the four City-led Forums.

Good News - CUMBRIA coverage on SSC

.
The consistent amount of input about CUMBRIA on SSC, I am pleased to say, has markedly increased in recent months, as have the number of SSC members making regular Cumbria postings.

There are now many regular postings being made about the Cumbria area of North West England, on all the threads located in the 'Communal Area' beneath the links to the four City-led forums, on the North East England Sub-forum of SSC . . .





ALL "CUMBRIA" POSTERS ARE VERY WELCOME . . .

Good News - CUMBRIA coverage on SSC

Following on from earlier posts in this thread, I just want to pass on that the "Cumbria Threads" have become, over the last few years or so, quite successful, over on the North East England Sub-forum.

Cumbria was a problem area, quite under-represented, for a while, hence this thread on 'Forum Issues', but now the Cumbria threads are BOOMING.

Remember, Cumbria (in North WEST England) forms part of the North EAST England Forum.

ALL the Cumbria Threads can be found in (what we call) our "Communal Area" underneath the four links to the CITY FORUMS, when you first arrive in the North East England Forum site.

So, to spread the word even further, I'll say it again . . .

ALL "CUMBRIA" POSTERS ARE VERY WELCOME HERE -
