Update From Keith In Whitehaven, Cumbria

Why Keith In Whitehaven?

You may notice I have a slightly odd title to my post this timeĀ  -I’m testing to see if I can rank this post on search engines for the place where I live – ‘Whitehaven‘ and for my first name ‘Keith‘.

So here’s what I’m doing for the terms Keith and Whitehaven and what you can do for your keywords:

Shooting In Whitehaven

I’d like to pass on my condolences to the family and friends of all of the victims of the events on 2nd June.
Almost everyone in the area has some connection with somebody involved.
Kevin Commons, the solicitor, was the founder of the firm occupying the two upper floors of the building where our printing company operates. He was a customer when we took over the business.
Paul Wilson, a taxi driver who is a customer of ours, was shoot at the crossroads just 2 buildings along from us. Fortunately Paul was relatively lucky and able to leave hospital the same day.

There will be a vigil at 12 noon BST on Wednesday 9th June. We will close for one hour from 11:30 to 12:30.

The following part of the post was written during Wednesday when nobody was sure what was happening:

Today was a nice sunny day to I decided to walk to the office about 11am. Our staff open the business so I don’t have to go in early.

On the way down I passed 2 emergency medics and heard their radio say at least 10 people had been shot!

It turned out the shooting began only just round the corner from our shop and Printing company.

This is a quiet town on the west coast of northern England and you do’nt expect this kind of thing to happen.

At the moments all the shops in town are closed – they were told to lock the doors with customers inside.

This is all going to be on the local news, but hopefully the person will be caught by now, and I will be able to walk home later.

June 3rd
I walked to work again and the town is full of film crews, and reporters are coming into our shop Printpoint.
It was announced that one of the victims was solicitor Kevin Commons who occupied the offices above us.
