AskBoA: Is there any progress with getting the Tourist Information Centre back on the agenda?
At the end of November the Wiltshire Times and others announced that the Town Council were getting the businesses and volunteers together on 12th December to see what could be done to revitalise this important body. It has all gone ominously quiet maybe due to the HCZ debate. In my view one of the arguments for the HCZ was to help the business footfall and this can be achieved by a vibrant TIC. Up to its closure the TIC achieved a footfall of 40,000 per annum, no mean achievement for a small office.
I understand that a group of volunteers is manning the fort on a makeshift basis to give advice and handouts but as we are coming into the holiday season surely some sort of permanency is required!
