Join Us

We invite all businesses and organisations in our area to join us as supporters, to leverage our greater strength as a community in presenting and promoting our region to the wider market place. We are run on a not-for-profit basis, with all revenue raised from supporter subscriptions being dedicated to marketing activity to raise the profile of our area. Our supporter fees are aimed to be affordable to all and represent excellent value for money. By concentrating on cost-effective and trackable digital marketing methods, we can make our money work hard to raise our profile for the common good. Supporter subscriptions cover the following:

  • Free listing on
  • Support and publicity for local events
  • Active social media presence, to include Facebook, Twitter
  • Presence at national travel and tourism shows
  • Liaison and partnership working with kindred tourism and marketing organisations.

As an organisation we are wholly owned by the sponsor companies and are not reliant for our survival on grant aid or public money. Our executive committee members give their time voluntarily to govern and direct the organisation’s efforts and provide points of contact for supporters to express their needs and wishes. We hope you will join us as a supporter by completing the application form below and returning it to us by email. If you have any queries we will be pleased to hear from you. We thank you for your support and look forward to working with you.
