David and Kathy Howe welcome you to their website ...

David and Kathy are both committed Christians

We are both teachers, but have both retired from full-time teaching. Kathy is now working at Carlisle Airport as a Flying Instructor with Border Air Training but will hang up her headset in May.

David has suspended his work as a Mountain Leader/Tourist Guide and  teaching English to speakers of other languages (TESOL).

David is a Guard on the South Tynedale Railway, Alston.  We have both recently been commissioned as Prayer Chaplains at Carlisle Cathedral. David is Church Warden at St Michael's, Stanwix.

David was diagnosed with bowel cancer six years ago, had surgery  and finished a 30 week course of chemotherapy. He was given the "all clear" in 2015 and the next check-up is in 2020.

In 2014 we completed the Thames Path National Trail, some 200 miles from the source near Cirencester to The Thames Barrier.

David has recently passed Level 2 Wine and Spirits Trust Certificate in Wines and Spirits with Merit after studies at The Lancashire Wine School and Kathy has followed with Level 1 certification.

Our summer walk 2015 was the 100 mile long South Downs Way National Trail from Winchester to Eastbourne and last  year the 75 mile long Capital Ring walk through London suburbs.

We both still run for pleasure, try to take in a hike once a week and delight in taking the Settle-Carlisle Railway to Skipton for a pizza.
