Coastal Activity Park – Come And Play!

Bournemouth’s newest attraction is now open offering more than 30 different activities in around one and a half kilometres of prestige, golden seafront at Boscombe. The Park provides visitors with a great opportunity to try new sports, tone up, join in a fitness class or simply sit back and enjoy the spectacle. 

The new website, gives all the news on events, sports, activities, how to book, where to eat, maps and more.

The Coastal Activity Park, which the NCTA is helping to promote, offers something for every age and level of fitness from beach yoga to slack-lining, table tennis to touch rugby. There’ll be dance classes, national sports events and competitions, training sessions, sports courts and equipment for hire and, better still, lots of activities are totally free.

There are new table tennis tables, climb and play giant boulders, 16-unit gym buddy trail and a fantastic new musical instrument trail along Boscombe Pier for budding composers.

The Big Hospitality Conversation

Some 159 new job opportunities were created in the tourism sector at the Big Hospitality Conversation which took place on April 2 at the Premier Inn. The event, which the NCTA helped to promote, is part of a nationwide British Hospitality Association initiative to create opportunities for unemployed young people.
A number of businesses, who had never before offered work placements or apprenticeships, did so for the first time. The event created 41 apprenticeships, 69 work experience positions and 48 youth employment opportunities.  All the pledges will be followed up by Springboard.  In addition, Premier Inn has pledged 90 apprenticeships for the region, and has committed to achieving 150 apprentices this year.

The Government is offering substantial funding for apprenticeships, to find out how you could get involved contact
