    Chris runs Little Walkers

    “There are lots of shops around that you can find in any town or any part of the country. People often come to Ambleside and that’s the first place they go to. I think that’s where something like the Lake District Pound can really help, by encouraging people to go to shops that are not just generic. Once people do it, they realise that it’s a better experience and that’s what retail needs to be these days. You need to provide a really good service, an interesting shop and an experience when you go in.”

I always say to people, I have been here in the Lakes for 50 years now and it’s almost been like a 50 year holiday. I’ve worked hard, but it’s just so enjoyable and I can’t think of anywhere else I would want to live.”
