Baronets Diary
January 2022.

In early December for the first time since the pandemic took hold the eminent body that I chair ,namely Marketing Peak District and Derbyshire (otherwise known as the local tourist board) held a gathering to thank all our members and hear ‘ state of the industry ‘ addresses, amongst others, from Derbyshire County Council Leader and Board Member Barry Lewis and marketing director Lindsay Rae. Hosted at Chatsworth in the Carriage House it was a joy to properly celebrate with fellow colleagues the vast range of tourism hosts that operate in the area from Glossop to Swadlincote and from Burton to Buxton. I had the honour of drawing the raffle with prizes from days out to the Great British Car Journey at Ambergate to cases of Thornbridge Brewery ales. A lively event and in addition it was lovely to properly meet the team that work so hard for the membership in the organisation. Let us hope for more visitors ,both domestic and overseas , in 2022 !
