Tourism project national awardA tourism project established near Grantham is up for a national award using aviation heritage as a standard for showcasing both the district and wider Lincolnshire. The Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage project features a ‘Bomber County’ rich in heroic aviation experiences, iconic heritage buildings and superb accommodation.

 

It is scheduled for the Innovation in Tourism Award at the annual Group Travel Awards at a prestigious industry event in London on Friday. The project commenced last autumn, when South Kesteven District Council worked with Stoke Rochford Hall to host group travel operators for visits to major county aviation sites. SKDC has now joined Visit Lincoln, the Petwood Hotel in Woodhall Spa, Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Visitor Centre, International Bomber Command Centre and Aviation Heritage Lincolnshire to extend the project county-wide.

 
To quote Nicky Barr, director at the International Bomber Command Centre, “Peter was clearly sold on what Lincolnshire could offer from the October tour. He then visited our stand at the NEC and was hugely impressed with our concept of working together.”

 

SKDC’s strategic director Steve Ingram said, “We are committed to promoting tourism as a key part of our visitor economy, worth some £165m annually to South Kesteven. It’s very exciting to be working with some amazing partners and a shared vision of using aviation heritage as the flag to wave for the district as the gateway to Lincolnshire.”
