New Cornwall tourism body set to continue legacy of Visit Cornwall

April 02nd, 2015

The new company who has become responsible for promoting the thriving tourism industry in Cornwall is pleased to announce that it is “up and running” according to bosses who are set to announce the fresh launch of the private sector trade body today (April 2).

Originally, Visit Cornwall was supported by public sector funding, but has now relaunched as a Community Interest Company (CIC) following the withdrawal of Cornwall Council’s annual budget of around £800,000.

For both visitors and local residents/business owners alike who used this useful company, the face of the new company will not change, and all the staff have been industriously working behind the scenes at their new offices in Bodmin in order to ensure the transition goes as smoothly as it possibly can.

Cornwall Council leader John Pollard will officially hand the organisation over to the private sector at New County Hall this morning, when the CIC’s chief executive Malcolm Bell and Chairman Lord St Levan will unveil the new-look company.

So if you’re visiting us here at The Valley for last minute Cornwall cottage holidays then you can find out lots of fun and informative information via Visit Cornwall.
