The managing director of award winning caravan dealership Salop Leisure has been appointed to the board of Shrewsbury Tourism Association.

Promoting Shropshire Tourism

Mark Bebb said he was delighted to become a director of Shrewsbury Tourism, a non profit-making company that works with other businesses and local authorities to promote tourism in Shrewsbury and surrounding area.

“As a Shrewsbury-based company, we work within the tourism industry and I have lived in the town for 25 years,” he added. “I feel it’s very important that the tourism association fills the gap left by a reduction in funding by local authorities.”

A vital role to play

Michael Connor, Shrewsbury Tourism chairman, revealed that the company was in the process of recruiting a part-time tourism officer to fill a void left by local authority funding cutbacks.

“Shrewsbury Tourism Association has a vital role to play in ensuring that tourism continues to prosper and bring wealth not only to accommodation providers, but also pubs, shops and restaurants in the Shrewsbury area,” he added. “The directors of Shrewsbury Tourism are all volunteers who are passionate about promoting tourism in the town.”
