THE VICKY, a shared workspace in the centre of Cockermouth, launched its’ new meeting pod earlier this month by holding a naming competition with the winner taking home a 30-hour free membership package.
Lizzie Turner, from Cockermouth won with her ‘BERTIE THE BOOTH’ suggestion and has since been invited to officially open the booth at a naming ceremony on 13th of September 2019.
Dave Bealt says of the meeting space said: “We’re delighted to offer this new facility to our members and the wider business community in Cockermouth. BERTIE THE BOOTH will be a great addition to the open plan workspace at THE VICKY. The winning name appealed because of the great play on words, and the humorous royal link.”
The Vicky, a repurposed Wesleyan Chapel tucked away in the town centre, secured funding from United Utilities and Allerdale Borough Council to improve provision for meetings at the coworking centre.
Ian McCoy Stake Holder Manager from United Utilities said: “We are delighted that United Utilities have been able to support the Cockermouth business community with this new meeting space. It is great to see small businesses working together to create a vibrant collaborative space.”
Mark Jenkinson, deputy leader and Executive member for economic growth from Allerdale Borough Council said: “Allerdale Borough Council are pleased to be working in partnership with THE VICKY, where this new meeting space will help support our local business community.”
BERTIE THE BOOTH is suitable for meetings of up to 4 people. It is available for use by all VICKY members and can also be booked by non-members for meetings too.
