New county-wide role for Burnham-based tourism association

Burnham-based Sedgemoor Tourism Association is broadening its focus with a new name that will see it representing the whole of Somerset.

Members of the 100-strong association gathered at Burnham's Oak Tree Arena on Wednesday (April 29th) where they unanimously backed proposals to become a 'community interest company' with the new name of Somerset Tourism Association.

Bob Nicholson, the group's Chairman, told the group is keen to broaden its role to promote tourism across the whole of Somerset.

"The aims and objectives are to market and promote Somerset as a tourism destination on behalf of, and to the beneft of, tourism-related businesses across Somerset," he said.

"The association's committee recommended this change in order to be able to present a county-wide trade representation in order to concentrate in the marketing of Somerset as a destination."

The group's branding, constitution and committee is changing as a result of the changes.
