With over 50 members and the town mayor, Councillor John Price attending, Oswestry Borderland Tourism launched the 2020 Oswestry – where Shropshire meets Wales brochure with a social evening at Oswestry Visitor & Exhibition Centre.
Having the event in one of Oswestry’s oldest buildings, the old school, emphasised one of the themes of this year’s brochure explained Lee Lucks, chairman of Oswestry Borderland Tourism. She went on to say that visitors to the town often say that the things they most enjoy about visiting Oswestry are the history, the friendliness of local people and the surprise that there is so much to see and do and those themes feature throughout the latest brochure. Using stunning images by Graham Mitchell throughout the brochure, the latest version showcases all the best things that visitors can find to do and see and find out what’s on.
The evening was all about telling members how Oswestry is being promoted not only locally but also nationally and internationally. The updated web site, www.Visitoswestry.co.uk is Oswestry’s number one web site and with more social media marketing and getting involved with other groups, Oswestry Borderland Tourism is one of Shropshire’s most active tourism associations. Oswestry BID manager, Adele Nightingale, and Mark Hooper from Visit Shropshire also talked about the exciting plans that they have for promoting Oswestry, The Borderlands and Shropshire which will bring new visitors to town.
The brochure is available locally from the Town Information Centre and will be distributed country wide throughout 2020. It can also be downloaded directly from the Oswestry and Welsh Borders web site: www.visitoswestry.co.uk
