Showcasing Whitchurch on Test, North Hampshire’s Hidden Gem

They say a picture is worth a thousand words; the team at Whitchurch, Hampshire are hoping their fabulous new double-sided banners purchased with a Basingstoke & Deane borough grant will prove this correct.

Since achieving Walkers are Welcome accreditation in 2015, showcasing and promoting Whitchurch and North Hampshire to a wider audience has been an important part of the ongoing tourism development work (place shaping) being undertaken in the town. The borough Local Plan update currently underway, has presented the perfect opportunity to provide input to the Plan’s rural policies and develop a destination management plan for the town and with the recent publication of the Government’s Landscapes Review, our work locally has gained a new momentum.

Commenting on the new publicity material, Jackie Browne, co-ordinator for the town’s Walkers are Welcome tourism accreditation said, “there’s more to Hampshire than the New Forest, the north of the county has so much to offer, not least walking without the crowds; these banners will help ‘sell’ that message at events within and outside the county and hopefully encourage more visitors to come and explore the fabulous North Wessex Downs and the valleys of the chalk streams”.
