MP Hears There Is No Fun In Amusements Industry Anymore

Following a meeting with the owners of an amusement arcade in Hornsea, the MP for Beverley and Holderness Graham Stuart, has called for a revitalisation of the tourist industry along the coast.

Graham has invited Tobias Ellwood, Shadow Minister, Culture, Media and Sport to come to the area and meet business owners struggling to stay afloat in the tourism and amusements industry.

He said: "I hate to admit it, but visiting these arcades in Hornsea was depressing.

"The owners are struggling with rates and council tax payments and at the same time there appear to be fewer people visiting the arcades to spend their hard earned money."

And he added: "The coastal towns in the constituency used to be thriving tourist hotspots and - while I appreciate times have changed - they could still offer so much to visitors to the area."

Graham met with mother and daughter owners of Pastimes and Regal Amusements in Hornsea Mrs Barbara Underwood and Miss Alyson Underwood.

They told Graham there needed to be some way of encouraging the amusements arcades to flourish so they would, in turn, entice more visitors to the town.
