A celebration of Cumbrian businesses held at Parliament has been hailed as a "resounding success" by the MPs who joined forces to host it.
All of Cumbria's MPs: Jamie Reed, Tim Farron, John Stevenson, John Woodcock, Rory Stewart and Sue Hayman, spoke at the event.
They each invited three businesses from their constituencies to attend, in order to promote Cumbria to the country's other MPs.
This day was a great way to show off the best of Cumbria, and to reach new audiences unfamiliar with the great produce our area has to offer. There was a real buzz at the event, and I hope it will help to provide a boost to the county’s businesses and tourist trade.
Cumbrian businesses work hard all year round to support the Cumbrian economy and many were affected by devastating floods last winter. I am pleased to be able to facilitate this important national networking opportunity.
