Chris Bushby, executive director of the Suffolk Agricultural Association, has resumed the role of chairman at the Choose Suffolk Tourism Partnership.

Mr Bushby recently completed a term as the partnership's chairman and handed over the role to Noel Byrne, managing director of the Bedford Lodge Hotel in Newmarket.

However, Mr Byrne had had to step down temporarily from the role for personal health reasons, and Mr Bushby has agreed to stand in.

“We are pleased that Chris Bushby has kindly agreed to extend his previous role as chairman for the immediate future until Noel is able to resume the role,” said a spokesman for the partnership.

“Noel has expressed great enthusiasm in leading the Choose Suffolk Tourism Partnership and we look forward to welcoming him back in due course.”
