'Clarke Willmott' recognises that every business, and every resident, in Somerset benefits from our county having a strong, high quality tourism product. We look forward to many mutual benefits from our partnership."
'Clarke Wilmott' Chairman, Tim Walker has said; "The opportunities that present themselves with our partnership with STA are far reaching. We have worked and continue to do so with a number of key Somerset tourism providers and businesses so this seems like a natural step. We look forward to working closely with the STA as they continue to attract people, businesses and services to enhance tourism and provide economic growth to this great county."
