The number of jobs created by seaside tourism is continuing to grow according to a new study by Sheffield Hallam University. In Skegness and Cleethorpes alone six thousand people are being employed as a direct result of people holidaying in the UK. And in Scarborough and Whitby alone over five and a half thousand people have jobs due to tourism there.
New figures show a fifth of people in Yorkshire are going on holiday abroad without travel insurance. The research also shows some people in our region wrongly believe the EHIC medical card acts as a full insurance policy.
A new visitor attraction is opening its doors at Stockeld Park in Wetherby. 'Summer Adventure' will include an outdoor roller rink with roller disco every Saturday, a huge Yew tree maze, go kart track, one of the UK's biggest jumping pillows and electric scooters for hire.
