Flood Recovery Support for Businesses

17th December, 2015


The floods have been devastating for many individuals, families and businesses. Whilst Penrith itself was not directly affected, many of our colleagues, customers and staff and their nearest and dearest have been touched in some way.

We are also aware of the many businesses who have bcome involved either financially or in kind helping and supporting Cumbria get back on its feet and we are definitely open for business. We have shown the nation and the world, how strong we are especially in a crisis.

Please be aware of the following message from EDC:

The application process to enable businesses affected by flooding to apply for funding is now open.  Please follow the link below for the application form and guidance for applicants.


There is also useful information on Cumbria County Councils Flood Advice page - http://www.cumbria.gov.uk/Floods2015/

We are about to send out a special visitor e-newsletter encouraging people to visit, but at the same time giving them up to date information on the situation.  The overall message is that Eden is open for business.

Do make the most of Social Media to let people know that you are open for business and we will endeavour to retweet your messages.

Best wishes
