Chamber discusses town map issue

At their meeting in the Hand Hotel on Monday evening members of Llangollen Chamber of Trade and Tourism discussed the issue of a new town map.

At one of its meetings late last year the chamber expressed its interest in a street map – modelled on the one handed out at last autumn’s Llangollen Food Festival – featuring adverts from local businesses around the edges.

Chairman David Davies said that this had been looked into and a private company had said it could produce one similar for the chamber based on 50 advertisers being charged £50 each for inclusion on the map.
However, he pointed out that Denbighshire County Council featured a Llangollen town map on its website which local businesses might be able to download for free to hand out to customers.

He said that the chamber had also been given a few hundred copies of last year’s food festival map which were available to members.    
Chamber secretary Ian Parry said the county’s countryside services team had produced a local map for Corwen, adding: “If that seems to go down well there they would probably also do one for Llangollen.”

Member Simon Collinge said he would still like to see the chamber having its own map and Mr Davies replied: “That’s maybe something we could do as a joint project.”
