Brand-new podcast launches to promote town
A brand-new monthly podcast, sharing the successes, stories, news and events happening in Chesterfield, has been launched on Spotify by Destination Chesterfield.
Chesterfield’s answer to BBC One’s The One Show went live on Friday 28 May.
The Chesterfield Show, which aims to keep people up-to-date with what’s on and what’s happening in the town, has been created by former Peak FM news presenter Josh Marsh who is now the marketing co-ordinator for Destination Chesterfield.
The new podcast combines Josh’s broadcasting and production talents with news and views from around the borough. People can expect hear positive, uplifting news that always remains topical as well as discussions around the ongoing regeneration in the area in the monthly podcast.
The first edition is packed full of local stories, including:
- Paul Chapman of S40 Local and Matt Pritchard from Defeye Creative talking about their new online business directory, ‘Un-hampered’.
- Matlock Farm Park’s Lotty Hawkins speaking about the attraction’s brand-new jumping pillow (the largest in the UK) along with some of their fun summer activities.
- Destination Chesterfield manager Dom Stevens on the newly launched Love Chesterfield Awards.
- Steph Mannion of Steph’s Sustainable Stuff on what makes being a trader in the town so special.
Commenting on the new podcast, Peter Swallow, Chair of Destination Chesterfield said: “The purpose of Destination Chesterfield has always been to promote the town as a great place to live, work and invest. The Chesterfield Show podcast is another vehicle we are using to share the positive stories of the many inspiring projects, businesses and individuals within the town. It’s yet another example of the town’s forward-thinking approach to promoting itself which has helped us attract investment throughout the pandemic.”
At the annual Celebrate Chesterfield conference it was revealed that SMEs in the borough are reporting growth in turnover and staff numbers through the pandemic, while developments have continued to move forward at pace.
More than £1bn of regeneration projects are currently underway, with multi-million-pound schemes like Chesterfield Waterside, Glass Yard, PEAK and the Northern Gateway Enterprise Centre starting to come out of the ground during lockdown.
