Workshops planned to help businesses use Hadrian’s Wall
Last updated at 13:04, Monday, 18 March 2013
Free workshops will be held in Carlisle and Silloth this week to help local businesses make the most of being near Hadrian’s Wall.
Organised by the Hadrian’s Wall Trust, the workshops are aimed at businesses based on either side of the World Heritage Trust site.
They will take place in Carlisle tomorrow and in Silloth on Wednesday and are open to anyone.
Guest speakers include James Rebanks of Rebanks Consulting, an advisor to UNESCO who recently completed a worldwide study of the benefits being part of a World Heritage site.
The workshops, taking place as English Tourism Week is marked, aim to help businesses build on investment in the Roman Gallery at Tullie House and the Roman excavations in Maryport.
The heritage site includes the Roman coastal defences in Cumbria from Ravenglass to Bowness-on-Solway at the western end of Hadrian’s Wall. It is one of the biggest and internationally best-known World Heritage sites.
Hadrian’s Wall Country business people Victoria Farley, from Lanercost Tearooms, and Vicky Moffitt, from Vallum Farm in Northumberland, will also be talking about their businesses.
The workshops are being held at Walby Farm Park, Crosby-on-Eden, and the Golf Hotel, Criffel Street, Silloth.
For more information or to book a place on either of the workshops contact Jody Ferguson at the Hadrian’s Wall Trust by emailing email@example.com or calling 01900 811455. Attendance is free but booking is essential.
