One event. Two days. One hundred plus delegates. And yards and yards of energy and positive deviance. Bedruthan Steps Hotel was the venue for the CoaST Change for Good Event 2011, with speakers and delegates from London, Norfolk, Lancashire, Cumbria and Wales – and what a result. The three themes were leadership and going against the grain, communication and inspiration, and making sure we’re counting the right stuff – beyond GDP, and heading towards environmental growth, and all out well-being. Presentations, delegate details, photos and films will be made available on the CoaST website within the next few days – we’ll keep you posted!

'Mr Chamberlain shows delegates a paper (Government Tourism Policy) and advises that there will be peace in our time!'

In the news....Cornwall Trade Association Wins National Award

The Cornwall Branch of the British Holiday and Home Parks Association (BH&HPA) recently won national recognition with an award for membership services at the Association’s Annual Conference in Warwickshire.

The award was presented by environmentalist and TV celebrity Professor David Bellamy to Branch Chairman Norman Bliss during a packed two-day programme which included presentations from Tourism Minister John Penrose MP and the President of The Woodland Trust, comedian Clive Anderson.

‘In these financially and environmentally challenging times it makes sense for us to work more collaboratively’ commented Mr Bliss, ‘and the great thing about the Association is that it allows information, advice and best practice to flow between business. The parks in Cornwall generate 24 percent of the £1.3 billlion annual visitor spend in the Cornish economy. Lodges, chalets and caravan holiday homes have a significant part to play in addressing the ‘second homes’ issue and residential parks make a welcome contribution to the affordable housing market, particularly for senior residents. This is an important sector to the life and work of Cornwall and the BH&HPA reflects that.’

The Association represents some 140 Touring, Holiday and Home Parks in Cornwall and over 2,000 parks across the UK.
