It is now official… something that has been on the horizon for a while now has been announced… the Tourist Information Centre in Bradford on Avon is closing due to financial reasons.
It does seem a rather bizarre situation that a town like Bradford should be without this valuable service, but there it is. It has been increasingly difficult for the Centres around the country to stay afloat after funding from central Government was stopped. It appears that Local Council funding just doesn’t stretch far enough.
It was only a few posts ago that we mentioned our inclusion in the Where to Shop Guide, produced by the TIC, for the coming year. Let us hope that, should this guide go ahead, it gains prominent distribution points around the Town.
We do hope that an alternative can be found for the services that are currently offered. After all, the internet can only go so far and who wants to be permanently looking for things to do on their iPad when they’re on holiday?!
