So if you are looking for a job with minimal hours this may well suit you, as even in the tourist season, it is not likely to be more than 15 hours a month.

SCAM WARNING

Cumbria Police would like to advise the public that we are aware of a telephone scam whereby people who are claiming to be police officers over the phone are requesting members of the public to transfer money to them to assist in a fraud investigation.

There have been a number of incidents in west Cumbria specifically the Drigg and Seascale area. This is scam which has been reported in other parts of the country.

We would like to state that no police officer would ever contact the public requesting any money. We would like to remind people to remain vigilant and to contact the police to check on the identity of officers if you have any suspicions.

Report online at www.cumbria.police.uk/report-it. You can also phone on 101.

Alternatively you can contact Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
