It was a great pleasure to be at the University of Cumbria’s graduation ceremonies in the spectacular setting of Carlisle Cathedral this week. There were students graduating from not only the UK, but countries around the world. With the students, families and friends travelling to Carlisle, there will have been a real boost to the local economy and many local hotels, restaurants and shops will have benefited.
Quite a number of people have also been recognised with Honorary Fellowships this week amongst these were Hairy Biker, Dave Myers and Nigerian TV presenter, Funmi Lyanda.
It is good to see our university maturing and doing so much in our community.
