Arun District Council has appointed specialist leisure agency BGB &
Associates to promote the area's tourist attractions in the wake of the
foot-and-mouth crisis. BGB will assist the council's in-house team to
create a higher national profile for attractions such as Arundel Castle,
Littlehampton and Bognor Regis. The BGB team, headed by associate
director Helen Coop, reports to council tourism manager Richard Edwards.
'Several factors have had a negative impact on tourism in the district,
including foot-and-mouth,' Edwards said.
