The Shropshire Hills and Ludlow Destination Partnership is reviewing the Sustainable Tourism Strategy. All member organisations were asked for views and there is still the opportunity to respond. The Strategy can be found at www.shropshirehillstourismpartnership.org.uk
I would like to remind all members that the Shropshire Hills and Ludlow Visitor Survey 2013 is available on the DDP website at www.shropshirehillstourismpartnership.org.uk
The new Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery will be opening its doors this Spring. It is intended to promote the whole of Shropshire and the artefacts and exhibitions will inspire visitors and locals to explore further afield. We would like to enlist all tourism businesses in the county to help promote the new venue. We will be issuing invitations to visit the new Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery so look out for messages about this in your email inbox.
