Oswestry Borderland Tourism is the only organisation that exists solely to promote Oswestry, Shropshire and Welsh Borderlands as a visitor destination. We do that by running Oswestry TIC in the Visitor & Exhibition Centre, producing the brochure – Oswestry, what to see, do and where to stay – and designing, maintaining and promoting this web site www.oswestry-welshborders.org.uk. We also liaise with other organisation such as Oswestry Town Council, Shropshire Tourism and Shropshire Council on all tourism related matters.
For 2017 we produced 25,000 copies of the brochure- Oswestry, what to see, do and where to stay. This year 19,000 have gone to a national distribution company and the remainder are distributed locally throughout Oswestry Town and attractions and venues in the area. The 2018 brochure will have 4 more pages and will have a print run of 30,000.
This web site was re-launched in June 2016 with lots of new sections describing the area and more sections for accommodation providers including dog friendly and wedding venues. We also promote members via Facebook and Twitter especially any special events or special offers that they may offer.
Membership is £65 per year and runs from 1st September to 31st August each year. Basic membership includes a line entry in the brochure and one page on the web site e.g. Hotel, restaurant or wedding venues. Enhanced memberships are also available with display adverts in the brochure, these have more entries on the web site.
Get in touch if you would like to be a member or have more queries about membership or fill in the membership forms.
