Hi all,

Further to my post/email yesterday re Activity Tourism Working Group Election.

I would like to make one point of clarification.

The previous post stated the:

'The working group is made up of private sector representatives supported by ex-officio staff from Outdoor Recreation NI and Northern Ireland Tourist Board.'

this now reads:

'The working group is made up of activity providers that offer a product/service to the tourist market supported by ex-officio staff from Outdoor Recreation NI and Northern Ireland Tourist Board.

Apologies for any confusion caused.

I have included full revised information below.

Kind Regards,

Chris Scott
