Items discussed:

Portas Bid Update

MA gave the group an update and more detail about what the bid involved. This sparked a discussion about the town. Some members felt that it is the perception of those that have been living in the town for many years that needs to change as it can sometimes be negative.

In June there will be a tourism workshop; contact JW for further details.

There are quite a number of plans ongoing regarding tourism involving collaboration and co-promotion.
