Regular visitors to the Nene Valley site may have noticed that things aren’t quite as they normally are right now. While many of our attractions and businesses across the region are now back to some degree of ‘normality’ things are very different in lots of ways right now.
For us at the Nene Valley project – one of the most obvious differences is that this year for the first time in five years, we are not able to run our annual Nene Valley Festival which normally takes place in September to highlight so many of the amazing attractions, venues and businesses that are fortunate to call the Nene Valley home.
With that in mind, to try and help support our local ecosystem, in place of the festival this year, we are rolling out a variety of business support activities to try and help our partners all over the region get back on their feet and make the most of the ‘new normal’. Over the coming weeks, we will be releasing a range of content via our social media channels, a series of updates here on the blog, webinars and even a brand new season of our Festival podcast.
During the course of the season we will be engaging with a range of local businesses, support organisations and industry figures to get the lowdown on the work they do and a range of useful advice for businesses to take advantage of.
You can find the episode wherever you get your podcast subscriptions from – whether it be Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Play or elsewhere – or feel free to stream using the embedded widget found below. We have just released the first episodes of this seasons run – including a very interesting interview with Ruth Cozens from SEMLEP who discussed some of the work SEMLEP are doing in the region right now, as well as offering some great advice for businesses looking to navigate the potential disruption ahead.
Don’t forget to subscribe with us to keep up to date with new episodes as and when they become available, and for more updates and information from the Nene Valley team – be sure to keep your eyes on our social media feeds – you can find the Nene Valley project on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook!
