Mike McKinley

It is with very great sadness that we report the death of Councillor Mike McKinley, on 1st March, following a short illness.

Mike had been an active member of Gosforth Parish Council for decades and made a huge contribution to the Lake District and National Parks in general over the last 15 years. As Chairman of the Lake District National Park Authority, he demonstrated his passion and love for the Lake District and its communities and he championed the important role of National Parks for the nation in his Chairmanship of National Parks England.

All our thoughts are with Mike’s family and friends in Wasdale and beyond. 

A celebration of Mike’s life will take place at St. Michael & All Angels on Thursday 17th March at 2pm. Funeral attire is not required.
