Exmouth’s new Tourist Information Service held an official launch party on Wednesday 21 August 2019 to celebrate the opening of its new premises in The Strand.
Based at AJ’s Taxis just around the corner since May 2015, the Tourist Information Service has recently moved to dedicated premises at 45a The Strand, in the centre of town. To celebrate the move, as well as the Visit Exmouth brand refresh, the Town Mayor, Councillor Steve Gazzard, presided over the official launch.
This included the unveiling of a commemorative plaque in memory of former Mayor, Councillor Bill Nash, who was instrumental in Exmouth Town Council taking on responsibility for the Tourist Information Service back in 2014. The Town Council, who supported and organised the move, attended the opening along with local business owners and organisations representing Exmouth’s tourist industry, including Ambassador Chris Woodward from the Jurassic Coast Trust.
The Tourist Information Service would particularly like to thank AJ’s Taxis for their support in hosting the service over the last few years.
Manned by knowledgeable and friendly local volunteers, the new office is open 6 days a week, Monday to Saturday, 10am to 4pm. You can also find more information on the Visit Exmouth website, www.visitexmouth.org. Jurassic Coast postcards and “Eye Spy Sheets” for children are available at the centre for a small donation.
Veronica Boatman, Tourism Officer for Exmouth Town Council, said “I would like to express my gratitude to the amazing team of volunteers who donate their time to provide Exmouth with a Tourist Information Service we can all be proud of. It is because of this wonderful group of people that Exmouth has a sustainable tourist information service for the future.”
The service is looking to expand their team of volunteers, so if you think you have what it takes, then get in touch with Veronica Boatman at Exmouth Town Council on 01395 276167 or via email.
