Cllr Mary Robinson, Deputy Leader and Portfolio Holder for Economies and Enterprise at Eden District Council, said:
"I am keen that our Inspiring Eden programme underpins economic recovery across Eden. To this end, I’m very pleased with this initiative which, along with other supported membership schemes with the Cumbria Chamber and the FSB, will provide access to a range of support for local businesses.
"Through these funded memberships schemes, we can reinforce the local business culture that is underpinned by collaborative working and the sharing of knowledge: both of which are critical ingredients for sustainable economic prosperity which will benefit generations to come."
