13th March 2012
Keith Simpson joined other local MPs and representatives of Broads-based businesses including Hoseasons, Norfolk Broads Direct, Wroxham Barns and The Waterside Rollesby to confirm his commitment to top quality sustainable tourism in the Broads.
The Broads is one of four pathfinder destinations selected by VisitEngland for special promotion to ensure they gain international recognition as great holiday areas.
Keith Simpson said:
“As someone who has enjoyed the Broads since I was a child and who now represents part of this important area of Norfolk I warmly endorse the Broads Quality Pledge.
“The Norfolk Broads combines a wonderful natural environment with a healthy tourism business which is crucial for those who live and work there. Hundreds of thousands of visitors enjoy the Norfolk Broads and we want to encourage them to return.”
Barbara Greasley, Chair Broads Tourism and Director Norfolk Broads Direct said:
“We are passionate about ensuring our visitors have the best possible holiday experience in the Broads and were delighted when Visit England gave the area a boost, by selecting us to be one of only four Pathfinder Destinations in the country. The support of our local MPs is vital as we continue to develop and improve the Broads as a top quality sustainable holiday destination.”
