At a Chamber of Trade meeting held on the 6th January 2009 it was decided by the membership present that the entire membership should be asked if they would support the idea of Windermere and Bowness becoming an Eco-friendly town.


The then Chair Barry Butler, offered to put together a paper outlining the thoughts of those present and asking for further contributions, ideas, information etc from the community at large.  The Chamber of Trade are happy to report that Lakeland Radio threw their 'weight' behind these proposals by advertising them in their News programmes.


The paper put together by Barry Butler can be accessed by clicking on the link below.

Love Your Lakes

Love Your Lakes works in partnership with Windermere Reflections to improve water quality in Lake Windermere and the surrounding catchment lakes. We're helping local businesses, residents and visitors to take simple steps to reduce the use of phosphate. By reducing the amount of damaging phosphates entering the lakes we can all do our bit to protect the future of one of Lakeland's most beautiful destinations.

Love Your Lakes is delivered by Nurture Lakeland, a charity based in Staveley.
