After another successful year for the Marmalade Festival at Dalemain House and Gardens, Maxine Dodd of the CW Herald advertising department, scooped the prize of, a bottle of Chase Marmalade Vodka which is made with the finest Seville orange marmalade and infused in an alembic copper pot to create a truly unique drink.
Lucky Maxine was entered into a prize draw after submitting an Orange A-Peel picture with Paddington to the Discover Penrith website in the Festival Galleries. The Chase marmalade vodka was kindly donated by Alan Reading from J&J Grahams and Totally Locally Penrith.

Totally Locally Penrith and the Penrith Chamber of Trade and Commerce were all geared up for 8 days of ‘Penrith Goes Orange A-Peel’ supported by Penrith BID and Discover Penrith. 50 shops and businesses created orange themed windows and displays. There was an orange trail to follow, special offers in many shops and Paddington Bear judged the best two windows in retail and non-retail. In addition the Penrith BID also supported a free shuttle bus that ran between Penrith & Dalemain over the weekend of the festival.
The Marmalade Festival at Dalemain is world renowned, and by Penrith getting involved with the A-Peel it not only raised funds for Hospice at Home, it also raised the profile of Penrith to an international audience, whilst having a little bit of marmalade fun along the way!
