Flood Insurance

It has been highlighted that some businesses may be now refused flood insurance as they come to renew their business/property insurance now. 

If you have been recently or are about to renew and are being faced with your insurer saying they'll refuse to cover you, please let us know ASAP.

We would need to know who the insurer is that is refusing you cover and any comments they are making.

Many thanks


Christmas Promotions

Yes, already talking about it but no doubt many of you have been planning it for months! 

If you've not already, this is a reminder about the Chamber promotion in the Christmas bumper Cumbria Life edition.  You should've already sent details in to Suzanne by Thursday 29th September but if you've not gone for that and want something else, we have now got over 2000 emails addresses that we are looking to send an autumn newsletter out to.

These are people who want to hear from us, local, regional and national, all who love the town and area as much as we do.

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.

Cockermouth in Cumbria Life September 2016

This is the final call for any business wanting to be included in the towns double page spread in September edition of Cumbria Life.  £30 and your business name, address and a product shot.

Spaces are limited for this promotion and are on a first-come-first-served basis. Please get in touch with Suzanne at to get involved.

I know it seems a while off but it takes time to coordinate and finalise and it needs finalising now!

Many thanks
