News - New plan for area’s history (Notts)
Historical figures with Notts links such as Robin Hood and the Pilgrim Fathers can help the county’s economy to grow
That’s according to the Notts Growth Plan which was approved by member of Notts County Council’s policy committee this week.
plan includes proposed to develop a major new visitor experience at
Sherwood Forest and a feasability study into a new attraction based on
the history of the Pilgrim Fathers in Bassetlaw.
tourism plans are amongst almost 50 major proposals to support
businesses, create training opportunities, improve infrastructure and
bring jobs and growth to the area.
County Council chief executive Mick Burrows, who has led the
development of the Growth Plan, said: “I have been blown away by the
enthusiasm, ideas and commitment to growth shown by Nottinghamshire’s
business community. It bodes extremely well for the future economic
prospects of the county.”
In a history, archaeology or metal detecting society and want your events publicising on here? Are you an author who wants to publicise a new book or do you want to get an article out to the greater public?
So long as the event is in Nottinghamshire or South Yorkshire or the book article is about the area or people from this part of the world we'll gladly help. There's no charge as this service is set up to work for the community and to publicise as much of our great wealth of history as possible.
