TOURISM chiefs have been celebrating the launch of a new camping guide to boost the region’s holiday trade.

Visit Peak District & Derbyshire tourist board joined forces with The Camping and Caravanning Club to help produce the 34-page guide.

Club spokesman Matthew Eastlake said: “The increase in campers in the area is good news for the local economy.”

Copies of the Camping & Caravanning Club Guide 2011 are available at tourist centres and forthcoming events including Derbyshire Food and Drink Fair at Hardwick Hall, near Chesterfield, on May 21 and 22.

VPDD spokesman David James said: “The guide offers a wealth of information amid a range of superb landscapes.”
