MP marks tourism week

Eastwood MP Gloria De Piero visited the DH Lawrence centre to show her support for English Tourism Week.

The week-long national initiative promotes and supports attractions, such as the award-winning Lawrence centre.

Throughout the week staff put on special themed tours where children dressed up in Victorian clothing, designed bunting and flags and made their very own Queen Victoria peg dolls.

The MP sampled traditional homemade Victoria sponge cake, and looked at the kids’ crafts.
