Digital Borderlands Voucher Scheme Launched
The Digital Borderlands Voucher Scheme offers additional funding to help eligible rural businesses and residents in Cumbria and Northumberland connect to gigabit capable broadband. Homes and businesses with broadband speeds of less than 30Mbps can use vouchers to support the cost of installing new gigabit-capable connections when part of a group scheme. https://www.borderlandsgrowth.com/Digital-Voucher-Scheme

Eden Tourism - Eat Out To Help Out Scheme
As well as Cumbria Tourism promoting your business (see link above), if you email firstname.lastname@example.org once you've registered, they will add you to the Visit Eden website. Penrith TIC will also have a list with information for both visitors and locals. There will be no cost to be included on this page, but any eating establishment featured must be registered as a food business with the Environmental Health department.
