Free event for key sector

Representatives from Northumberland’s food and drink industry are invited to attend a workshop at Kirkley Hall.

The free event, which is being organised by the county council, will help the businesses they run or work for to identify areas where opportunities could exist, get a greater understanding of the support available to them and learn from the successes and problems experienced by those in this important sector.

It is hoped that delegates covering all aspects of the industry will sign up to attend the event, which will take place on Thursday, March 5, between 9am and 1pm. To book your place, go online and visit
