Our announcement that the £6.5m plans have been revealed for National Stone Centre, in Wirksworth, really piqued the interest of the media.

BBC East Midlands Today, ITV Central, and Derbyshire Times all attended our press call.

BBC News Online featured our news on its homepage headlines.

Derby Telegraph ran the story online and in print.

BBC Radio Derby mentioned our announcement in its news bulletins throughout the day. We also arranged for a project representative to appear on its breakfast programme.

What’s more, minerals, quarrying, museum, and visitor media used our story.

The PR announcement is part of ongoing communications support around the development of the visitor attraction in Wirksworth. We look forward to inviting the media back when the redevelopment is complete and an exciting new centre of excellence opens.

The reinvigorated National Stone Centre will bring new visitors, as well as provide a focal point for engaging the public, schools and colleges in the science, history, present and future of the quarrying and mineral products industry.
