Stone updates its visitor information

The new town map shows places of interest


Stone Town Council is pleased to announce the next phase of its investment in Stone Town Centre.

Visitor information boards and ‘finger’ posts are being refurbished and relocated , with the support of Stafford Borough Council, and a range of new visitor information has been prepared and is to be introduced in the coming weeks.

The information boards will be located at key entrance points to the town centre and will display a hand drawn town centre map, illustrations of several historic places and a calendar of forthcoming events. In addition, a business directory will be included that has been compiled by the Stone Traders Group.

Cllr Ian Fordham, Chairman of the Council’s Estates Sub-Committee, said:

“We want the town centre recognised as a noted leisure destination. These initiatives will help ensure that residents and visitors can enjoy the town to the maximum.”

Speaking about the calendar of events, Cllr Jill Hood, Chairman of the Tourism and Town Promotion Sub-Committee, said:

“The Calendar outlines all our upcoming events. There is something for everyone taking place in and around the town centre: highly regarded festivals, cultural and heritage events as well as family attractions. We look forward to welcoming residents and visitors alike to enjoy everything that Stone has to offer.”
