Carlisle MP Champions Cumbria Day in Parliament


John Stevenson MP has joined forces with Cumbria’s MPs to host a Parliamentary event to showcase Cumbrian business and produce.

The event, known as ‘Cumbria Day’ will be held in Parliament on 6th December and will be sponsored by the Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership. The event will be an opportunity, not only to showcase Cumbria to Parliamentarians from across the UK, but also for Cumbrian business to benefit from important networking opportunities on a national level.

Each MP has nominated three businesses to represent their constituency on the day. Mr Stevenson has nominated Carr’s of United Biscuits, Kingmoor Park and Calder Foods, who have all since confirmed that they will be attending.

John Stevenson said:

“I am delighted to be taking part in this event to showcase Cumbria’s business and produce.

“In Cumbria, we take for granted the amazing local products on our doorsteps; we know how great they are. I now want the rest of the country to see the businesses we have to offer and how vital we are to the country’s economy.

“I am pleased to have the opportunity to show my colleagues in Parliament what we are made of.”
