By Rob Freeman
Gloucester City Council has announced the make-up of the panel which will help shape the future of the city's tourism promotion.
The Gloucester Marketing Steering Board provide feedback and support the marketing of the city, as well as sharing ideas about how to attract more visitors.
The board, which was recruited through a call for interested members and will meet quarterly, has been recruited from areas such as sports and leisure, retail and attractions, accommodation and events.
The board members are Frances Bircher (Gloucester Cathedral), Jacquie Douglas (Aspire Trust), Josh Clare (University of Gloucestershire), Ross Nichol (The Club at Tuffley), Jason Robinson (Eastgate Retail Centre), Emma Dunleavy-Harris (Resource Group), Hannah McDonnell (Gloucestershire Community Rail Partnership), James Dillon (Civic Trust), Colin Brooks (LV14 Sula Lightship), Lucy Nottage (Gloucester Rugby) and Bev Channel (Channel Events).
Councillor Steve Morgan, cabinet member for culture and leisure, said: "We were delighted with the level of interest we received and we believe this has meant we were able to appoint a board that was widely representative of the visitor economy for the city.
"We are looking forward to receiving their feedback on our plans for the tourism marketing and are confident that with their expertise, we can deliver activity that will encourage more visitors from outside the area and even those from closer to home, to experience Gloucester."
