Grant up for grabs for tourism firms

Firms which aid Matlock and Bakewell’s tourism industry, could be in line to win a business grant worth £1,000.

The Go Local awards have been launched by cottages4you – the UK’s leading holiday cottage agency – to reward local independent businesses which make holidays memorable for the thousands of tourists who visit the town each year.

Visitors can nominate their favourite business before October 2, to help it win one of the £1,000 award business grants.

Charlie’s Cafe of Baslow and Chatsworth were both nominated for last year’s Go Local awards and will be amongst those hoping to go one stage further this year.
