It’s time to THINK BIG with us!

We are investing significantly in the long term development of the district’s visitor economy through InvestSK, the development company set up by of South Kesteven District Council, and we would like to work with you so that you can reap the benefits for your business or organisation.

We want to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to become part of the active ‘tourism family’ of South Kesteven – a special partnership scheme for businesses and individuals who are involved in attracting visitors or who can benefit from increased visitor numbers.

‘Visitors’ include us all and can be local residents, their visiting family and friends, business travellers, holiday makers and overseas visitors. Joining this exciting new partnership will entitle you to involvement in a series of major projects for South Kesteven, being launched in 2018 + 2019.
