Innovating in the age of COVID: Leading Cumbrian tourism business launches online children’s store with an environmental twist
Family-owned Lake District Estates is best known as the company behind the much-loved Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway and Ullswater Steamers, as well as several caravan parks, marina holiday apartments and shops operating as ‘Peter Rabbit and Friends®’.
To help build and strengthen the bricks and mortar business, staff came up with the idea of developing a new retail website for kidswith an environmental twist. The Veg Patchhas now gone live, selling wide range of products with education, family and the outdoors at its heart.
As well as creating new jobs and opportunities in Cumbria, The Veg Patch has a strong environmental ethos and the company is working hard with a select number of UK suppliers to reduce plastics and source ethical, environmentally friendly products.
