Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre Launches New Website

Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre Launches New Website
The Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre in Craven Arms is excited to launch their new website, as part of their ongoing commitment to improving the whole visitor experience and making the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre a ‘must see’ attraction for both visitors and the local community.

The Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre, previously operated by Shropshire Council, is now managed by Grow Cook Learn, a social enterprise that's committed to connecting people, food and the landscape of the Shropshire Hills.

Manager Valerie Meehan said "we invited Shropshire Tourism to design and develop our new website and we love the result.

The Discovery Centre still houses the exhibition that uncovers the secrets of the Shropshire Hills and of course the Shropshire Mammoth which features prominently in our new website design. There are already some significant changes taking place to the café and shop bringing a much greater focus on local food and local products. The new website gives us the platform we need to promote all of this and more, including our new events and plans for a red kite experience in the Autumn."

Kay Corbett, Head of IT at Shropshire Tourism said, "we were delighted to be asked to develop the Discovery Centre’s new website. It is a totally bespoke, responsive design ensuring it adapts to fit the screen size the visitor is viewing it on. It is also fully integrated with social media and enables the team at the Centre to easily add new events, photo galleries and much more, to really showcase their fantastic facilities, events and activities."
