About Better Cumbria

Here social commentators, writers and artists can portray and discuss the things that they think make Cumbria better, or that they think will improve Cumbria. It’s that simple and that complex! The theme will be positive and constructive. There will also be links to news items and related commentary that shall focus on matters that have a bearing upon the quality of life in Cumbria. The public are encouraged to comment and Better Cumbria will, upon the Editor’s discretion, accept articles, short stories, poems and illustrations, on a non-fee paying basis, that:

A) conform to acceptable writing standards, i.e. are comfortably readable to a competent English language reader, conform to the laws of The United Kingdom, and do not infringe others’ copyrights, i.e. they must be submitted by the original author of the work with express permission to publish on this site. The original authors are understood to retain all copyrights, but once submitted to Better Cumbria, a contribution cannot be withdrawn unless it is replaced with an improved version,


B) suit the theme of this electronic magazine (e-zine)


C) be no more than 5,000 words in length.

Politicians and public servants may submit material, but are expected to clarify whether their submission is made in a private or public capacity. All comments will be moderated and contributions may or may not be published at the Editor’s discretion. The Editor’s decision will be final.

Please submit your articles or announcements for publication, along with your name and contact details to Charles Paxton at contact@thewebcat.biz

I will endeavor  to make this site a pleasant and valuable read and I hope that you enjoy Better Cumbria

Thank you very much.

  1. Great article. There’s a lot of good data here, though I did want to let you know something – I am running Ubuntu with the latest beta of Firefox, and the design of your blog is kind of bizarre for me. I can read the articles, but the navigation doesn’t work so great.

  2. Hey I just wanted to let you know, I actually like the written material on your website. But I am using Flock on a machine running version 9.04 of Ubuntu and the UI aren’t quite kosh er. Not a big deal, I can still essentially read the articles and research for info, but just wanted to inform you about that. The navigation bar is kind of difficult to use with the config I’m running. Keep up the great work!
