THE Moreton Area Centre (MAC) welcomed a larger party than normal through its doors recently when a group of school children paid a visit.

More than 50 pupils from St David’s C of E Primary School, in Moreton, took a trip to Cotswold District Council’s centre to learn about the role of the Visitor Information Centre there.

The children are studying the tourism industry this term and wanted to explore a range of issues including the importance of tourism in Moreton, what makes the town so attractive to visitors and why market days are such a success in the town.

Sally Graff, the MAC and tourism manager at the council, said: “It was a pleasure to host such a big party of enthusiastic pupils.

"The Cotswolds tourism economy is now worth over £1 billion and it’s good to see so many local young people taking an interest in this expanding business."

Julie Baxter, of St David’s School added: "They say that travel ‘broadens the mind’ and this sort of visit really brought the subject to life for the children. I would like to thank the staff at MAC for showing them around their facility and finding the time to answer so many tourism-related questions."
