Anthony Climpson moves on from NFDC

Not many people reading this will know of Anthony Climpson, but he has headed up the New Forest tourism at New Forest District Council for numerous years, and in that time has been a big supporter of promoting Milford on Sea.

In his 30 years with NFDC Anthony has done an excellent job and received accolades both national and international as well as an OBE.

A restructuring at NFDC has meant that Anthony is still looking after New Forest tourism, but now as chief executive of a start up community interest company called Go New Forest. He will also be joined by Carol Seymour, who has worked closely with him for many years. 

At his NFDC leaving event, there were gracious words from the Council Leader (Barry Rickman), from NFDC's Chris Elliott and an amusing response from Tony with reminiscences and quotations. 

Anthony was also presented with a compiled picture/quotations book and a large picture of a New Forest scene. 

The Food Week Team send our thanks and good wishes for all the help Anthony and Carol have given us in the past.
