Following a successful bid by Bolsover Council, £750,000 of European Regional Development Funding was secured to rejuvenate the town, boost local trade, and showcase it to visitors.
The Discover Bolsover team has unveiled a town logo and website, as the first step in a campaign to highlight Bolsover as a destination, and build on the huge popularity of English Heritage’s Bolsover Castle.
Sarah Townsend, from Castle Oven bakery, said, “It’s great to see the town being given a new lease of life and exciting to see how things are shaping up since we heard the news about the investment.”
“I hope visitors to the town like it just as much as we do.”
Dennis Skinner, MP for Bolsover, added: “It’s fantastic to see Bolsover being given proper investment that will really show off the best of what our town has to offer.
