After Donna made the “big decision” to move to Cumbria, her new employer GSK supported her every step of the way.
A HIGH QUALITY OF LIFE
Enjoy a high quality of life in arguably the most perfect place in the UK.
Renowned for its low crime rate and friendly communities, Cumbria is a fantastic place to raise a family, grow an inspiring career and pursue a wide variety of passions.
The area has a vibrant mixture of bustling towns and picturesque villages in and around the world-renowned Lake District National Park and near the stunning and protected environs of Morecambe Bay, yet with easy access of the UK transport network.
The outdoors is an obvious draw and offers activities for those looking for adventure and something a little more leisurely, while an abundance of attractions and things to do for people of all ages serves residents and visitors alike.
Cumbria also boasts a strong reputation for food and drink, as home to many well-known brands as well as a cluster of Michelin-Star and award-winning restaurants, including L’Enclume.
And after a busy, or relaxing, day enjoying the best of the region, there is a wide variety of housing on the market for all budgets and household sizes. With so much to offer it is no surprise that more and more people are choosing to live in Cumbria.
Xuna Li, originally from North China, is Power Systems Consultant for Athena PTS in Barrow-in-Furness. She said: “I’d heard the lifestyle was good here so I thought I’d give it a try. People smile at you in the street and they’re friendly and kind.”
Principal and Chief Executive of Furness College, Andrew Wren, said: “The variety of things to do is vast. Whatever you do for a career or in your spare time, you can do it here in Cumbria.”
Choose Cumbria, the best place to live, work, learn and play.
