As part of a post-Covid recovery plan for the Pewsey Vale economy, the Pewsey Vale Tourism Partnership is seeking to gain Walkers Are Welcome accreditation, a national scheme launched in 2007. Local support has to be demonstrated by individuals, businesses or other organisations e.g. schools signing an on-line register here.
This accreditation will provide the area with additional publicity and will show the Vale to be an excellent destination for anyone who wants to enjoy a walking holiday.
Susie Brew, Coordinator for Pewsey Vale Tourism Partnership, said, “To meet the criteria for the scheme, we have to demonstrate that walking routes within scope are well maintained which we are doing in conjunction with local walking groups, landowners, the AONB, Wiltshire Council and others on this project.
We also have to demonstrate that the accreditation is supported by local people, businesses and organisations – so we have set up an online Register of Support. It takes just a few seconds to register here and we are urging as many people as possible to do so. We need to get more than 700 signatures on our online register so quite a task!”
The Pewsey Vale Tourism Partnership is a not-for-profit, voluntary, community organisation set up in 2015 to promote the Vale of Pewsey. It is supported through annual membership – for more information contact Susie Brew – email@example.com or visit the website here
