A conservatory extension at Cotswold Conference Centre (CCC) is set to be officially opened by tourism and heritage minister John Penrose today (February 27th).
The formal launch of the glass structure is just one part of the a visit that will also see VisitEngland chief executive James Berresford join the MP for a tour of several important local sites and a meeting to discuss regional tourism, reported Cotswold News.
Within the CCC, the conservatory section was added to the new Smallbrook Suite; the organisers may need to pull down conservatory blinds or other window dressings if the sun shines particularly strongly for the occasion.
Mr Berresford said: “I’m looking forward to meeting so many industry colleagues today and discussing ways in which we can continue to work together to further grow tourism to this beautiful part of England.
There are a wide variety of businesses that have enhanced their commercial offering with the installation of a conservatory. For example, the glass structure at Rudding Park Hotel was recently praised by the Ripon Gazette.
Rather than forming part of the hotel’s conference hosting facilities, the conservatory is the setting for the space’s diners to enjoy, with wicker chairs laid out around a 400-year-old tree in the middle of the restaurant.
