Lake District hostel saved after buy-out

Business News

Tomorrow’s headline in The Westmorland Gazette newspaper.

Their copy says:

Taylor Nuttall, chief executive of Folly in Lancaster, has bought the hostel, which he intends to run with his wife, Carolyn.

“We have both been working independently doing different careers,” said Mr Nuttall.

“We talked about running a business together and, over the past few years, we have been looking at different properties in the Lake District.

“The youth hostel came through at the right time.”

Carolyn had a Salford day, so was not available for the photo. She was so disappointed. Not.

Thanks WG for the PR exposure. The builders scaffolding is nicely edited out, but sadly not all the moss on the roof – another job still to finish. “More here”:http://www.thewestmorlandgazette.co.uk/news/8898989.Lake_District_hostel_saved_after_buy_out/.
