An initiative to highlight the many assets of Steyning, and to put the town firmly on the map, was launched last week.
The Steyning and District Community Partnership, Visitors and Tourism Group, chaired by Martin Leigh-Pollitt, has produced two new leaflets to promote the town.
Many of the people who gave their time freely to produce these leaflets met for the launch at Whites, Steyning.
They enjoyed a cup of coffee and Danish pastries before venturing outside for photographs.
They also took a look at the town through visitors’ eyes.
Explore Steyning is a snapshot brochure on all the things that are great in the area.
It is being professionally distributed to places up to 90 minutes driving time away, so will hit a very wide audience indeed.
The aim is to put Steyning and district on the radar of many potential new visitors and bringing more business to shops, restaurant, hotels and pubs.
The second of the projects is the Steyning Town Trail.
This has been produced to promote the history of Steyning by encouraging visitors to take a fascinating walking tour of approximately one mile around the pretty streets of the town, taking in interesting and historic buildings.
Janet Pennington – local historian – and Steyning Museum helped with the content.
Both projects have been created and completed by volunteers from the community and financially supported by Collabor8. Hidden Britain also offered advice.
The leaflets are on brochure racks at the TI Centre at Steyning Post Office.
