Global expert, local action

In an interview with the Faversham News (May 30, p10), globetrotting professor of tourism Harold Goodwin explains why he has been driven to campaign on local issues – including the creek and the neighbourhood plan – by what he believes to be a lack of democracy in his home town. On the subject of tourism in Faversham, he says: “This is more than a food and drink town. I do not think we should turn our back on the creek.” It is not, he says, “a prissy Weald of Kent-type town. What keeps it different is that it is a working town … it has a very special quality which keeps me living here.”
