Nigel Tett to take back SECWHA reins

A former chair of a business and hotelier association has taken back the reins of the position - hoping to once again lead the tourism industry for the area.

Plans were confirmed at SECWHA’s AGM (Skegness East Coast Wolds Hospitality Association) for the new executive committee to be headed by hotelier Nigel Tett of Palm Court Hotel.

“It is with a great deal of pride that I have been asked to chair one of the leading hospitality associations in the country. I believe with a totally committed executive committee and the backing and support of all our members, we can meet the very challenging financial environment that our industry finds itself in,” said Nigel Tett.

Councillor Doreen Stephenson, leader of ELDC, said: “I would like to thank George Facey, the outgoing SECHWA chairman for his hard work and dedication. I’m sure, under the stewardship of Nigel Tett, SECWHA will continue to go from strength-to-strength. Tourism is worth around £480m to East Lindsey’s economy each year, creating thousands of jobs both on the coast and inland. Along with Visit East Lincolnshire, SECWHA has a vitally important role to play in pulling together key players in the industry to work in partnership to seize opportunities. Over the next year, the council will continue to work with SECWHA on a number of exciting projects.”
