On Friday, I visited Forest Holidays’ Forest of Dean site. As a key part of our local tourism sector, it was great to see how the site had reopened their doors in a Covid-secure way.
I was encouraged to hear that their bookings have been strong, as we want people to spend their money in the Forest of Dean, but in a safe way.
Operations Director, Andrew Heath, and Head of Brand Purpose, Gemma Chance, showed me round the site.
I also dropped in to the shop, complete with my mask, ahead of the new measures on face coverings coming into effect from this Friday.
I look forward to continuing to visit more businesses in this important sector as the Summer gets going.
