December 6th 2016 will see Cumbria Day return to Parliament. The day, arranged by Cumbrian MPs and Cumbria LEP will showcase ‘The Best of Cumbria’.
Britain’s Energy Coast (BEC) has been working with the event organisers to reduce the carbon impact of the event by sponsoring and arranging the transportation of the Cumbrian wares and exhibitions that are to be on display.
Britain’s Energy Coast CEO, Michael Pemberton, commented: “By sponsoring the logistical arrangements of Cumbria Day we’ve been able to lighten the load for the 20 Cumbrian businesses who are attending, enabling them to take the train. This action is our contribution to the decarbonisation of the day. The county has a lot to offer across many different sectors and we hope those attending Cumbria Day will enjoy the opportunity of seeing our diverse county on display in one room.”
Jaime Reed MP for Copeland
“On behalf of the Cumbrian businesses due to exhibit at Cumbria Day on 6th December, I’d like to extend my sincere thanks to Britain’s Energy Coast.
“They’ve been invaluable in ensuring that event will be as environmentally friendly as possible, and they’ve helped to ensure that the day will run smoothly ensuing that Cumbrian business will benefit from this excellent opportunity”.
Tim Farron MP for Westmorland and Lonsdale
“Cumbria Day on the 6th of December, is set to be a fantastic celebration of our wonderful county that will truly show off the best of what the area has to offer.”
“This could not have been achieved however, without the kind and generous support of Britain’s Energy Coast. Their help in making Cumbria Day environmentally friendly, on top ensuring that businesses attending could easily transport their products to London, has been instrumental in ensuring the success of the day.”
