So – spring is here. Hard to believe, I know, with footage in recent weeks of ten-foot snow drifts and reports of the coldest March on record since 1975, but it’s great to see that the tourism industry hasn’t let a few snowflakes prevent a “full steam ahead” march into exciting programmes of spring and summer events.
