Louth Town Partnership launches Love Louth guide
A SHOWCASE of what makes Louth Britain's Favourite Market Town has been included in a new tourist guide.
The leaflet, produced by Louth Town Partnership, is a first for Louth as it is solely aimed to encourage visitors to the town, highlighting many popular tourist destinations.
It has been launched by the partnership to coincide with English Tourism Week which runs from tomorrow, March 16 until Sunday March 24.
People wanting to pick up a copy of the leaflet can visit a special tourism market stall planned for Friday, March 22.
The guide will be available in many tourist information centres in the East Midlands and will be taken to a county leaflet swap. The partnership is also planning to meet with a group of 70 tour operators to encourage more coach trips to the area.
Louth Mayor and Partnership Board member, Councillor Jill Makinson-Saunders said: "It is time we started really shouting about what makes Louth Britain's Favourite Market town.
"We know that Louth is a lovely tourist destination, with plenty to do for the whole family, so our task now is to make sure others do too.
"Louth has it all - boasting a vibrant three day market, an award winning food offer, a state of the art leisure centre, places for picturesque walks, the list goes on.
"We are set for a great year ahead with the Zero Degrees Festival starting on June 21 with Party in the Pews and finishing on July 14 with the food festival and a whole host of events in between.
"The main objective of the partnership is to encourage footfall into the town, which is achieved through Louth's big event days.
"It is hoped that this guide will mark Louth as a great all year round holiday destination."
