Tewkesbury's digital makeover

Tewkesbury's digital makeover

The official website promoting Tewkesbury has been transformed to showcase the town's riverside charm and the many attractions it has to offer.

Residents and tourists can visit visittewkesbury.info to discover things to do, hear about the latest events and find many different places to eat, drink and stay. The website has all the information needed for planning a trip to Tewkesbury, including interactive maps to help navigate easily around the town.

The website also reveals the new 'Discover Tewkesbury: an extraordinary riverside town' branding. Its responsive design means that the website can be used easily across all platforms and devices.

The website is an integral part of a programme of investment to boost Tewkesbury's identity as a popular tourist destination as well as a great location to do business.

Lead Member for Economic Development and Promotion, Councillor Rob Bird, said: "This new website is a fantastic representation of Tewkesbury online and illustrates the potential for a great visit to the town, whether it's for a few hours or for a few days. Tewkesbury has so much to offer local people and tourists, as well as the local and national business community, so I'm incredibly pleased that we have this new tool at our disposal and can market the town to its full potential."

Dave Handley, Managing Director of Mosaique said: "We are really enjoying working on this contract, it is a real labour of love and we are delighted with how the website looks and how easy it is to use.  We love the town as a place to live and work and we hope this website will go a long way to show visitors why they should come and stay."

The contract to deliver the work was awarded to local businesses Mosaique Creative & Design and The Vivid PR Consultancy, both based in the town's St Mary's Lane.  The website has been developed working alongside local business networks to create a fantastic one-stop shop for visitors to the town.

Funding for the website was secured by Tewkesbury Borough Council from the government's Business Support Flood Grant, which helps flood-affected businesses based in Tewkesbury and along the Rivers Severn and Avon.
