Lottery bonanza for Cumbrian village

Although many villages are struggling to keep local services open, one community in the Lake District are proving that it can be done.

People in Ennerdale Bridge have already rallied round to re-open their local pub and have now received a large grant to turn a disused forestry building into a village shop with space for community activities.
