Partnership will bring new town guide to Falmouth

From 15 February 2012

Fal River teams up with Falmouth BID and town council to launch innovative new guide.

An exciting and innovative new guide for Falmouth is being launched after three of the town’s leading organisations banded together to help promote the town.

The 2012 Falmouth Town Guide is being produced by Fal River Cornwall in partnership with Falmouth Town Council and Falmouth BID.

The new guide will replace the Town Council’s current bi-annual town guide and the Falmouth Tourism Partnership’s accommodation guide.

Nicola Kneebone, Fal River Visitor Information Centre manager, said: 'We're delighted to be working so closely with Falmouth Town Council and Falmouth BID to bring together the main marketing strands for Falmouth, and hope we're able to reach out to even more people than before.
'We want to produce an up to date and attractive guide that benefits both visitors and the local community.
'We still get many enquiries for printed material, and have found there is still a demand for this kind of guide.'

Positive impact

40,000 of the new, free 100-page A5 pocket-sized guides will be produced in time for Easter. It will feature information on the town including detailed mapping, a shopping guide, places to eat and accommodation.

Falmouth Town Council's, Ruth Thomas, added: 'Bringing two guides together to create one dedicated book for the town is something that will add value to the users.

'And with 40,000 being produced we believe it will have a positive impact on the businesses that are listed.'

Richard Wilcox, Falmouth BID manager, continued: 'We’re really pleased to be working in collaboration with the Fal River Visitor Information Centre and Falmouth Town Council to produce this guide.

'It’s going to really emphasise all the great things to do in Falmouth, and will be a benefit to both visitors and locals alike.'

Advertising space in the guide is limited. For anyone wishing to advertise in the 'must have' guide for 2012, please contact Nicola Kneebone on 01326 313394 or
