Tour of Britain 5th September - Go Green!

Hi all,

We are on the route for the Stage 2 route next Monday with a sprint section of the days route and we would like you all to go green.

The winning rider of the sprint section gets awarded a green jersey and to celebrate our part in the day, we'd like you to decordate your windows, shops and businesses for the next week or so in green displays!

Marketing Cockermouth

Our own marketing drive to support the town continues and has had 2 email newsletters sent to different segments of the Cumbria Tourism database.  We're getting good results too.  At time of writing, we now have over 1500 people on our own email database.

The next 'Taste' styled Cumbria Life advert will be going out at the end of August into the September edition and we are looking at sending our own newsletter in the coming weeks.

Tour of Britain in Cockermouth

Dear all,
 
I’m sure you’re aware that the Tour of Britain is returning to Cockermouth on Monday 5 September. The cyclists will be hurtling past Cockermouth School, down Castlegate Drive,  down the main street to Wordsworth House and up Sullart Street / Gallowbarrow, turn left at the traffic lights, come down the hill past Lime-Lighting and then right onto Lorton Street before leaving town along Lorton Road.

Publication of Cumbria Flood Action Plan

Floods Minister Rory Stewart has today published the emerging Cumbria Flood Action Plan.
 
The plan, which was developed by our Catchment Directors in liaison with the Cumbria Floods Partnership, sets out the short term actions being undertaken to reduce flood risk to 4,300 homes in the county, as well as proposed long term actions that will reduce flood risk for generations to come.
 

Can you display local school artwork?

Can you help?  Can you display a peace of artwork from our local school for a few weeks over the summer holidays?

We have extraordinary young talent in this town and it would be wonderful to share some of their work with the community through  the shops, empty or
otherwise.

If you can spare a small space for one or more peaces, please get in touch with Gilli (gilli@thekirkgate.com) who can then liaise with you.
