Tourism Day -18th March 2013

I was pleased to help out in the Flag & Whistle for this start of season events update to the regions Tourism Industry. Over 150 representatives  turned up to hear the GWSR's latest plans for making this season the most wide ranging in terms of events and hopefully the most successful to-date.

Colin Fewell took the audience through this seasons attraction and placed great  emphasis on making this seasons visit to the GWSR a day out. The £15 per head for adults and a reduced child's fare seems a good value for money proposition.

I had many visitors to the Broadway Stand and everyone was enthusiastic about the prospect of reaching Broadway and what a great boost it would be, both for the Railway and local tourism generally.
 A No Brainer I think!

Representatives were in attendance for the Wartime in the Cotswold Event. We should applaud those who take time out to make this sort of event so realistic,  interesting,  and thereby successful.

Everyone then piled onto the train to be pulled by Foremarke Hall  on a gaunt over to Cheltenham.

On return there was the option to take a DMU ride to Laverton and/or a look around the Signal Box and Engine Shed.

I can't see how the guests could  fail to be impressed with the event and hats off to Colin Fewell for the organisation.
