Vote for your favourite food and drink producer

Date: Wednesday 6th December 2017

PENRITH and the Border MP Rory Stewart is asking constituents to nominate their favourite local food and drink producers ahead of Cumbria Day 2018, which is to take place in Westminster on 24th January.

Hosted by the county's six Members of Parliament and supported by Visit Cumbria and Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership, the annual event provides an opportunity for Cumbrian businesses to network on a national level, and showcase their produce to parliamentarians from across the UK.

Mr. Stewart said: "Cumbria Day is an incredibly important event, and I am very proud that it is now in its third year. This time around, each Cumbrian MP has been asked to invite two businesses from their constituency to attend the day in Westminster, but with so many high-quality producers on our doorstep, this is a very difficult decision, and that is why I am asking constituents to nominate their favourites and help me make the decision."

To submit nominations visit contact the parliamentary office on 0207 2191663 .

The deadline for nominations is 11pm on Monday, 11th December, and the two businesses with the most nominations from the public will be invited to Westminster to showcase their produce at the event in January.
