Ray lives with wife June, who has worked for University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust [a partner of Choose Cumbria] for over 30 years, and has never contemplated leaving Cumbria.
“Cumbria is a lovely area compared to a lot of places,” he said. “People are so friendly here and house prices are more affordable.

“I wouldn’t ever move away from Cumbria. I’d miss it too much.”
