SWOAPG calls on Welsh Government for rapid re-opening of outdoor sector in Wales

Following the First Minister’s gloomy prognosis last week for re-opening the tourism sector in Wales, SWOAPG has written to him and other Ministers and Assembly Members asking for the Welsh Government to “rapidly review their strategy for the wider tourism and outdoor sector in particular in Wales, with a view to making an announcement at the next 3 weekly review on 18th June about a timetable for re-opening the sector during July.” The full letter is available at the link.

We are expecting the Welsh Government / Visit Wales to publish this week some form of roadmap for re-opening tourism businesses – including the outdoor sector – and we understand that this is likely to refer to the guidance developed by the Outdoor Alliance (with significant contributions from SWOAPG) in its Outdoor Alliance Cymru Recovery Plan and Post Covid-19 Guidelines and Recovery Matrix for Adventure Sports and Provision in Wales.
