Cumbria agency 32West has won a contract to deliver content and marketing services for the Holker Group, which owns Cartmel Racecourse.

32West is based in Ulverston and was established in May last year by former CN Group regional editor James Higgins.  Frank Stretton, the former commercial director of CN Group, later came on board as a partner and shareholder in the business.

He said: "The team here at 32West are thrilled to have been appointed as media partners of the Holker Group. The Holker business has outstanding brands and we're all looking forward to working and supporting them over the coming weeks and months.

“32West as a business continues to go from strength to strength as we help our growing list of clients tell their story and make the most of the exciting content and marketing opportunities within each of their businesses.”

The Holker Group is owned by the Cavendish family and is based at the historic stately home of Holker Hall, in Cark, near Grange-over-Sands.

It also owns Burlington Stone and leisure sites, Holker Hall and Gardens, Longlands and Old Park Wood.   

Chief Executive Allen Gibb, said: “We are delighted to have secured the services of the team at 32West. It was clear to us that as a business, and based on their industry experience, they will enjoy great success and we wanted to be a part of that journey.

“This is a key period in the history and development of the Holker Group as we build upon the unique and rich heritage of the Cavendish family, the Estate and its businesses whilst looking to the future.

"There is lots to look forward to this year, with new events at Holker Hall and Gardens, an innovative venture between Simon Rogan and Cartmel Racecourse and of course Cliff Richard's concert all among a packed calendar.

“The 32West team will help us to engage with our loyal customer base, while reaching new audiences who are yet to experience everything the Holker Group has to offer."
