Coronavirus Update



The Covid-19 pandemic has made all businesses look closely at how they provide services to their clients. We at Bell Park Kerridge have been no different. By making use of e-mails, zoom calls and telephone, service to our clients has not been affected.

This has made us think closely about our Cockermouth premises and as the lease is due for review at this time, we have taken the decision to close our Cockermouth office with effect from Thursday 27th of August. All business will now be operated from our Carlisle office (Telephone Number 01228 888999).

Whilst sad to be be closing our Cockermouth premises, we are confident that we can continue to look after our West Cumbrian clients by a combination of e-mail, post, zoom meetings and when things return to a more normal way of life, face to face meetings and home visits. The fee earner with the conduct of your matter will not change and the staff working in Cockermouth have been retained to ensure we continue to offer the best service to our clients.

Following the Government guidance we are open for business and ready to support you in these challenging times.

Some of our staff are working from home; many are working in the office.

In order to protect our staff, we are encouraging telephone contact on 01228 888999, or e-mail contact in the usual way via the e-mail addresses displayed on:

We are striving to ensure contact with Clients is efficient and as good as we can make it. We do offer consultation by zoom, facetime etc, which is surprisingly easy to do, even if you have never used it before. It is the next best thing to a face-to-face meeting.

Whilst we are not meeting Clients in the office or at home, documents can be delivered to our office and posted through the letterbox. These will then be dealt with by the person dealing with your matter.
