Improving Penrith together

Penrith Partnership on Facebook Penrith Partnership brings people together to improve our characterful market town in the beautiful Eden Valley in Cumbria.

We work with other local groups and residents to help make Penrith an even better place to live, work and visit. 

The projects we've tackled together have enhanced our town - from landscaping and lighting to planters and street furniture.

Our ethos is very much 'by the community, for the community'. The projects we do are driven by what local people tell us they want.

Imagine a new vision for Penrith
