Karl Stephens, 45, Site Safety Leader at Kimberly-Clark, lives on Walney Island, Barrow-in-Furness

Karl relocated to Cumbria in 2001 after starting his career at Sony in Bridgend, South Wales. He and his family are now enjoying being part of a fun and friendly community in the county.


Karl and his family love living by the coast and can often be found cycling in the area.

“Walney is a great place,” he said. “There’s a lovely community spirit and a great place to have children. It’s wonderful.

 “We spend plenty of time together as a family – we’re always out and about on our bikes.

“Family and friends come to visit us and they have a whale of a time going round The Lakes with all the things to do around here.

“Whatever your interests are, they can be supported in Cumbria.”
