Walks booklet for north Norfolk hotels
A booklet listing walks around Cromer and Sheringham produced by Norfolk County Council will be released as a special edition for hotels thanks to funding from the EU-backed Coast Alive! scheme.
Similar booklets of walks around Great Yarmouth and King's Lynn have already been published.
Firms are being invited to register for a supply of booklets at the Cliftonville Hotel in Cromer tomorrow at 11am.
Ann Steward, cabinet member for sustainable development, said: 'We know that people walking the long-distance coast path are a boon to local businesses, and there is every reason to believe that visitors enjoying these short local walks will also bring tourist pounds to local businesses.
'I am delighted that Coast Alive funding will allow this potential to be explored in the Cromer and Sheringham area,' she added.
