Better weather boosts business in south east

Improved weather between July and September boosted the performance of hospitality and tourism business in the South-east of England.

A business confidence survey by Tourism South East found that 46% of accommodation providers and tourist attractions found trade during the first nine months of 2005 to be better than a year ago.

They attributed the improvement to the warmer, drier weather over the July-to-September period.

Despite concerns over the current economic climate, rising costs and security issues, the majority (47%) of business were confident that 2005 would be better than 2004.

The survey covers businesses in Kent, Sussex, Hampshire, the Isle of Wight, Surrey, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire.
