Boost for county tourism

SHERWOOD Forest will benefit directly from additional funding secured by VisitEngland to boost tourism, stimulate economic growth and jobs across the county.

The funding is the result of VisitEngland’s bid from the Regional Growth Fund and will be used on a three-year project entitled Growing Tourism Locally.

Experience Nottinghamshire chief executive Jennifer Spencer said: “Today’s announcement is a major win for Nottinghamshire.

“This funding reflects our significant tourism potential and our close working relationship with VisitEngland.”
