Four new free guides showcasing the town centres of Bolsover, Clowne, Shirebrook and South Normanton have been launched aimed at encouraging more people to visit.
We have produced the guides as part of its tourism drive to attract more people to the area and explore the many historical attractions, shopping experiences and countryside that’s available in the District.
The guides highlights some attractions for visitors, be it Bolsover Castle, Creswell Crags and Hardwick Hall, to Willow Tree Family Farm, Peter Fidler Reserve, Harlesthorpe Dam and or the Archaeological Way.
Cabinet Member for Media and Marketing, Councillor Steve Fritchley said, “Our towns and surrounding villages are great places to live and visit. We have so much history, culture and beautiful scenery that even those of us who have lived here for many years can always find something new and exciting to do.
“This is the first of many ideas we have to try and improve our town and village centres. As a council we need to make the most of what we have got. We need to promote the area more and showcase what we have to offer which will then hopefully attract more people to visit us and spend money in our town centre shops and businesses.”
These useful guides will provide visitors and residents alike with great ideas on where to visit and what to do in our district and will be available from local attractions, cafes, libraries, council offices and shops. To download a copy click here.
Our website is our main means of communication, so we have decided to remove our corporate Facebook account to drive more people to visit our website to get their information.
It’s not a case of removing a way people can get information about us, we are just changing the way people access it. We don’t advertise on Facebook and the information we post is all on our website so we are simply reducing duplication and allocating our resources more strategically so we can concentrate on making the website a better and easier experience for the end user and explore other ways of communicating with our communities.
We want to make the website a hub where people can go and get all the information about us as well as their community and we will be refreshing and revamping our site over the coming months.
If you have contacted us via Facebook, you can still do this through the Do It Online section of our website.
