REAL Devon

Lathwell marketing workshop

Despite blustery rains and the closure of the main access road, there was a very strong and enthusiastic turnout for the REAL Devon information evening tonight. 

The REAL Devon Local Action Group (LAG) has been established to distribute £1.2 million of funds made available through the EU funded LEADER grants programme for business and community initiatives that will improve the Mid Devon rural economy and quality of life. 

The event comprised a series of presentations from past grant recipients, including Wellhayes Vineyard and Planet Play, and a number of Top Tips-packed workshops, including one on marketing by our Niki. She emphasised the critical importance of focusing marketing plans on the people who make and influence purchasing decisions for one's products or services, and provided some really interesting techniques for improving engagement and memorability.

It was our first visit to The Corn Barn - and we found it to be an excellent venue: a warm and flexible space combining oodles of charm with all mod cons, charming hosts and a constant stream of very yummy food. We thoroughly recommend this venue!
