This month sees the conclusion of the Town Council’s project to improve and enhance signage and interpretation materials in Leominster. The work has been funded by a European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development initiative that aims to encourage investment in tourism information and infrastructure.
The funding was provided to help us develop:
- improved pedestrian finger post signage throughout the town
- a trail of 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.
The town’s new welcome signs are now in place, with additional space for event notices to be added once COVID measures allow our fantastic range of town events to start up again. The pedestrian signage in the centre of town has also been given a much-needed update, with the addition of new fingerposts and two additional signposts in Corn Square and West Street. The final stages of the project are due to be completed this month, with the installation of visitor information signs in key points throughout the town and a trail of heritage interpretation boards that bring Leominster’s unique and fascinating history to life.
We are very grateful to the individuals and heritage groups that made this project possible by generously giving of their time, skills and expertise We would also like to thank our funders, for this wonderful opportunity to invest in Leominster’s signage and heritage.
