Rory was invited to open Brampton’s new Rural Growth Network Hub, set up by Cumbria Chamber of Commerce, as a focal point for local businesses looking for free support and advice. At a launch which also served as a networking opportunity for Brampton businesses, the Penrith and the Border MP welcomed the additional business support now available for the local community. The local hub is based at Brampton’s Irthing Centre and will provide businesses with free access to their facilities, including internet access and meeting rooms, as well as networking opportunities and free training and advice sessions. The Brampton hub is one of 13 hubs across Cumbria, operating under the wider Cumbria Business Growth Hub, with a £3.5million budget to support Cumbrian businesses.

Rory said:

“It is vital that we develop new initiatives and ideas that will help support local small businesses here in Cumbria. Perhaps the most important priority is to make it easier for small businesses to gain access to finance. It is great therefore to see the launch of business hubs across Cumbria, and I hope businesses in Brampton will now make the most of the free advice and support on offer.”
