Tamsin Rogers, Head of Widening Participation at the University of Cumbria and Director of the Cumbria Collaborative Outreach Programme (CCOP), lives in Ambleside

Tamsin is making a valuable contribution to the county in her role at the University of Cumbria.


Tamsin is a keen fell walker and her passion for the outdoors led her to Cumbria.

“I had ties to Cumbria as we used to have family Christmases in the area as I was growing up,” she said.

“My husband and I spent all our free time in The Lakes, which is what drove us to make the decision to move. We wanted the hills and lakes on our doorstep rather than always driving up to Cumbria in our free time.

“We’ve climbed a lot of the fells around Keswick, so being in Ambleside opens up the South Lakes area to us. We’ve got so much more of Cumbria to explore.

“Every morning, I wake up and pinch myself that I can be out in the fells in five minutes.”
