BID Project Manager, Mel Martin and BID Chairman, George Le Hunte, with proofs of the Camborne Town Guide 2015
The third annual Camborne Town Guide is ready. Packed with essential information for residents and visitors, it’s available from hundreds of distribution sites within a ten mile radius of the town.
Featuring both the new Camborne Town logo and the Cornish Mining Heritage logo, the focus of this year’s guide is the town’s mining heritage.
Produced by BID Camborne, it invites the reader to ‘Uncover the Real Camborne’, home of the county’s deepest mine and birthplace of Richard Trevithick, the father of steam power. It describes a town now busy with independent shops and businesses surrounded by a rich history of industrial innovation.
The guide is an easy to use A2 sheet folded to a convenient-to-carry A5 size. It includes useful telephone numbers, details about how to get to Camborne by bus, bicycle, rail, road and on foot, where to park and how much it costs, dates of special events and information on the diverse shopping opportunities in the town – from traditional butchers and fishmongers to specialist shops selling model railways, musical instruments and computers.
The flip side of the leaflet shows a map of the town centre running from Camborne Rugby Club at one side to Dolcoath at the other. The map is colour-coded for clarity: shops are gold, services – for example dentists or financial advisers – are purple, places to eat and drink green and parking facilities yellow.
“We’re really pleased with the 2015 Camborne Town Guide and the positive statement it makes,” said BID Camborne Project Manager, Mel Martin. “It even includes a competition. The prize is £100 worth of shopping vouchers. Anyone can enter by visiting the website: www.camborne.town.com and signing up for the newsletter.”
