“We are delighted that so many Eden based food and drink producers have contributed to this special hamper competition,” said Charlie Thornton – Tourism Development Manager at Eden District Council. “Running in conjunction with this year’s English Tourism Week we hope the competition will stimulate people’s appetites to discover just how many mouth-watering things there are to see and do in this amazing corner of Cumbria.”
