Allerdale are inviting local firms are invited to a 'meet-the-buyer' event to find out how they can benefit from the construction and regeneration opportunities in the borough and further afield.

The event is being organised by Allerdale Borough Council in partnership with Kier and Morgan Sindall. It is designed to ensure local suppliers have the opportunity to provide services and be part of the local supply chain, thereby benefitting from the multi-million-pound schemes that are in the pipeline.

The council has successfully bid for almost £40m in funding for schemes in Maryport and Workington alone.

Cllr Mike Johnson, Leader of Allerdale Borough Council, said: “We want to ensure that the local supply chain gets the most benefit from the investment into our communities which will be happening over the next few years. This will not only fuel our local economies, but also boost employment opportunities for our local communities. Therefore, I’d encourage any interested firms, to come along to the event and find out more.”
