BROMYARD & DISTRICT CHAMBER OF COMMERCE & INDUSTRY LTD –APRIL 2016
Tourism in Herefordshire is a considerable employer, supporting 8,500 jobs and is worth £411m to the local economy. In spite of the importance of this sector Herefordshire Council have withdrawn all support and the county have been reliant on voluntary help from a handful of tourism offices scattered around the county (including Bromyard). Hereford city does not even possess an office.
Hopefully this is about to change as Hereford & Worcester Chamber of Commerce have taken over ‘Visit Herefordshire’ and on 1st June, they will be giving the Bromyard Chamber of Commerce a talk about their plans for the future. If you have any interest in tourism please do come along. The meeting is in the Oak room at the Falcon Hotel and starts at 7.30 pm.
