They’re off. Dartmouth Visitor Centre is galloping into the New Year with the launch of its new visitor guide.
Subscribers and supporters alongside town, county and district councillors joined volunteers, directors and DVC manager Karen Perrow at the Mayor’s Avenue visitor centre today (Wednesday) to mark the start of the 2018 season.
Among those present were DVC partners, Jeff Cooper from We Make Magazine who produces the guide and Anna Roach and Sydney Voisey from the Discover Dartmouth website operators, Visit South Devon.
District and County councillor Jonathan Hawkins added his support alongside DVC director Gina Coles and board chairman, district councillor Hilary Bastone.
A total of 26,000 maps and guides have been printed for the visitor centre this year – an increase of 7,000 on 2017.
The coloured brochure includes a comprehensive A to Z of Dartmouth, its accommodation providers, places to eat and drink and attractions of interest.
DVC chairman Hilary Bastone thanked everyone for their continued support.
The DVC and its free-to-visit Newcomen engine museum is open six days a week throughout the winter and seven days a week during the summer.
