After 30 years reporting or local news in the Lake District, the Lakeland Echo closed its doors in December with a celebration event at the Hydro Hotel Windermere organised by the paper’s founder Andrew Wilson.

Many staff and supporters turned out for the event which signalled the end of an era in Lakeland journalism.  Mr Wilson now plans to sponsor a Lakeland Echo prize at the annual Lakeland book of the year awards.
