Ratty enters the International Marmalade festival

Yes, you've read that right, our La'al Ratty the watervole station master has rustled up a scrumptious treat and is taking on his cousin (and now rival) Sammy Squirrel in a marmalade competition!

Every year the international marmalade festival is held at Dalemain Mansion and Historic Gardens and every year Sammy Squirrel from the Ullswater Steamers enters a jar. But this year Ratty has decided to get in on the action and has created his own special marmalade to enter into the competition. It is customary for Sammy to dress his jar up and Ratty is already thinking of ideas to trump that cunning squirrel!

Keep an eye out on the news feed and our social media for the latest in this intriguing battle!
