NATO Summit - website should include Newport too!

As wonderful and as significant as the photographs of Caernarfon Castle and Beaumaris Castle are, more relevance to the host city of Newport would not go amiss. I appreciate the importance of pushing the Welsh brand but Newport and the surrounding area must feature too.

Extract from the South Wales Argus 

Criticism has come for the lack of focus on attraction in Newport on the government’s website for the summit which features Beaumaris Castle, Caernarfon Castle and Rhossili Bay.

The website does point out Tredegar House and the Transporter Bridge as attractions in Newport but is more focused on Wales as a whole.

Jessica Morden MP said: “As wonderful and as significant as the photographs of Caernarfon Castle and Beaumaris Castle are, more relevance to the host city of Newport would not go amiss. I appreciate the importance of pushing the Welsh brand but Newport and the surrounding area must feature too.

“If the government are just going to cut and paste from Welsh tourism sites this is a wasted opportunity for Newport.”
