Tourism-type businesses are being encouraged to get involved in a project to try and develop the rural tourism offer in the Yorkshire Wolds.

East Riding Council has reached the final stage of a funding bid to invest in a programme of themed events, itineraries and activities to improve the rural tourism offer in the Wolds and encourage visitors to stay longer, particularly in the shoulder season between Easter and summer.

The council, which is leading the bid, is holding several meetings, including one at The KP Club, in Kilnwick Percy, on 29 June for anyone running tourism-related businesses in or near to the Yorkshire Wolds to share their views and ideas to incorporate into the final bid.

The meetings will be held from 10.30am to 12 noon and are free to businesses to attend.

To book your place(s), contact Julia Soukup, a rural projects officer at East Riding Council, by emailing Julia.soukup@eastriding.gov.uk with your business name and the name(s) of attendees.

East Riding Council is working with a number of partners on the ‘Enjoy the Wolds in Spring’ project, including: East and North Yorkshire Waterways Partnership, East Yorkshire Local Food Network, North Yorkshire County Council, Ryedale District Council, Scarborough Borough Council, Visit Hull and East Yorkshire, Yorkshire Wildlife Trust Nature Triangle Partnership and the Yorkshire Wolds Way Partnership.
