Funding workshop on Rural Tourism

30 Aug

Tuesday 10 September 6-8pm, Escot Park, Ottery St Mary

The workshop starts with a tour of a red squirrel enclosure within Escot parkland.  This was funded by Making it Local and provides a good example of how wildlife can be a driver for tourism.

There will be an explanation of the Sustainable Development Fund, a small grant scheme  run by each of the AONBs, and which may be suitable for some tourism projects.  Project Development Workers Kate Tobin and Julie Fergusson will be asking people to share their thoughts on priorities for rural tourism in the area, which could be incorporated into bids that will be made next year for future EU funding for community-led projects. So if you are interested in developing tourism which builds on the outstanding natural surroundings or you are seeking ways to raise funds for a specific project, this workshop is for you.

Booking is essential. 01823 680626
