Breakfast Briefing

Support for Allerdale & Copeland Tourism Businesses

Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic Allerdale Borough Council’s Place Development Team held quarterly breakfast briefings at different venues across Allerdale. The purpose of the briefings is to keep local tourism businesses up to date with the latest developments in the sector, update businesses on the work of the Council, highlight and share best practice and provide a networking opportunity. Given the Covid-19 outbreak we’re doing things a little differently and bringing you as much useful information as we can online.

Below is a recording of our latest Tourism Breakfast Briefing that was held in February 2021 via Zoom, together with a number of presentations covered at the event. This was a joint briefing held by Allerdale and Copeland Borough Councils. Essential information about how to access Government support funding for businesses during the Covid-19 outbreak can be found here.
