In April 2019 Leominster Town Council was successful in securing grant funding to support a project to improve and enhance signage and interpretation materials in Leominster. The grant, part of the European Union LEADER funding initiative, aims to encourage investment in recreation infrastructure, tourist information and small scale tourism infrastructure.
The funding was provided to help us develop:
- improved pedestrian finger post signage throughout the town
- a trail of 10 heritage interpretation boards, located around the town centre
- replacement welcome signs located on town entrances
- updated visitor information signs in the town car parks, bus station and railway station.
We have been working with heritage groups and historic venues from across Leominster to identify the best content for each of the signs and to ensure that we make the most of this opportunity to draw attention to our town’s fantastic heritage and attractions.
The timeline for the Enhancing Leominster’s Heritage project has been affected by the recent COVID-19 crisis, however we look forward to unveiling Leominster’s new signage in the near future!
