Hucknall Tourism and Regeneration Group launch their summer bus tours next week.
Thanks to the financial support from Hucknall’s County Councillors and sponsorship from businesses, the tours can go-ahead again offering residents and visitors trips to take in the tourist hot-spots and sights of interest.
“The tours are very popular and despite the advice that bookings will not be taken until 1st April, we are already having telephone enquiries,” said group treasurer, Sheila Robinson. “Last year every bus was full and we are expecting nothing less this year.”
