A local community is rejoicing at the installation of a new bus shelter. After a seven-year-long campaign, Pelican Garage has a brand new shelter, so that local people are protected from the elements as part of their regular commute.
Cumbria County Councillor Graham Roberts and Trudy Harrison MP were amazed at the smart new look to the entrance of the town.
Commenting, Cllr. Roberts said "the shelter adds to the much-needed infrastructure and overall development of the area and without the Whitehaven Town Council would never have happened. I want to thank all of those who have long since campaigned for this".
