TWO new attractions have joined the partnership working to bring more visitors to the Bay.

Babbacombe Theatre and Brixham's Golden Hind have joined the English Riviera Attractions Partnership.

Chairman Richard Cuming, from Bygones in St Marychurch, said: "Our association continues to evolve and expand.

"In addition to the important addition of the English Riviera National Trust this year, I am pleased to welcome both Babbacombe Theatre and the Golden Hind to the group for 2012.

"The partnership will continue to work closely with the ERTC, supporting its campaigns, and we are working on several projects of our own including repeating the production of our highly successful passport booklet for next year."

Colin Matthews, owner of Matro which runs Babbacombe Theatre, said: "We are delighted to have been accepted by the English Riviera Attractions Group, which we feel will raise our profile as all the major attractions of the area are members of this active and prestigious group."

Sharon Waring, general manager, said: "Having had many opportunities to work with members of the group already on varying projects and activity over the past 10 years, I am thrilled to be able to join them under the ERAP umbrella to utilise their combined talents and their wealth of knowledge and experience."

Simon Read at the Golden Hind said: "I am delighted to be accepted into ERAP and to have the opportunity to work with the highly experienced and motivated partners within this high profile marketing group.

"Exciting things are happening for Torbay's tourism industry, especially in Brixham and by working together so much more can be achieved not only in marketing terms but general awareness for our visitors and our important market. I hope the Golden Hind will be able to significantly contribute to the team and I am looking forward to working together."

The current members are: Babbacombe Cliff Railway, Babbacombe Model Village, Babbacombe Theatre, Brixham Heritage Museum, Bygones Victorian Street, Cockington Court, Golden Hind, Greenway Ferry, Hiflyer Balloon, Kents Cavern, Living Coasts, National Trust English Riviera (Greenway, Coleton Fishacre), Occombe Farm, Paignton Pier, Paignton Zoo, Splashdown@Quaywest, Torquay Museum, Torre Abbey and Waves Leisure Pool.
