About Sharon & Peter Garner, Keswick On Derwent Water.

Sharon was born & bred in Threlkeld village 4 miles east of Keswick. Sharon attended Threlkeld then Keswick School and after school started training as a confectioner with John Bryson - Master Bakers of Keswick. By the age of 21 Sharon was promoted to Head Confectioner and managed Bryson's Confectionary Dept. as well as working part-time as an accomplished professional caterer.

Peter, moved to Keswick in 1986 to help his parents in their then, new business Lakeside Holiday Park on the edge of Derwentwater, Keswick. Sharon & Peter met in that year and married in 1988. Sadly Peter's Dad, Norman, died in the same year but the holiday park business continued until 2005. When mother, Jeanne, died the family decided to sell 'Lakeside' to the Caravan & Camping Club.
