The East Neuk Local Tourism Association is going boating, and we hope you'll join us!
On Thursday, April 28, the ENLTA will have a social and information meeting starting out on water and then moving to dry land.
Alex Gardner has generously offered the Isle of May Princess boat for a one-hour ride out in the Forth along the coast. Coffee/tea, and beer/wine, will all be complimentary. Boarding begins at 6:15pm and the return about an hour later. Warm clothing (layers!) and deck-worthy shoes should be worn for reasons of safety as well as comfort.
Upon leaving the boat, we'll walk along Shore Street to The Royal Hotel on Rodger Street. The Royal Hotel has undergone a renovation and refurbishment by the Rangolam family, with the bar and restaurant serving lunches and dinners, an outdoor beer garden perfect for warm-weather relaxing, having games/karaoke/live music nights, and just livening up Rodger Street with its' variety of events and activities. The Royal will then host the balance of the evening, with a chance to meet others and catch up, and learn new tourism-based information via several short presentations from David Steele, the May Island Resident Manager; Visit Scotland; and ADS interactive tourism kiosks. Coffee/tea, soup and stovies will be provided, and the full-service bar has any variety of beers and wines for purchase.
The cost of the evening is £5 per person. Please note that space is limited, with a maximum of two people per reservation. As this is a business evening, children will not be able to take the boat ride or attend the meeting. Parking should be available in the two harbour-front car parks -- the East Basin car park near the RNLI lifeboat shed, and the car park across near the harbour master's office.
The latest East Neuk Tourism Guide -- a 32 page booklet focusing on the villages, accommodations, restaurants, activities, and more of the East Neuk -- is expected to be off press by then and copies will be available for you take away and give to your customers and clients.
Please bring your own business cards, brochures, flyers, etc. so that they can be put out and taken away as well.
RSVP -- please!! -- to Gail Sorley at [email protected] so we may track the number of attendees.
We look forward to seeing you on April 28 at a meeting that is sure to be fun, relaxing, friendly, and informative. Please join us!
