Corsham centre set to win tourists

Changes are under way at the Corsham Heritage and Information Centre, as it prepares to relaunch offering a range of new services.
Based in Arnold House in the High Street, it now serves as a tourist information centre and houses items of historical importance to the town.
However, after a reduction in its council funding, the group which runs the centre is looking to transform it to a self-sufficient entity.
The centre will have four sections, covering tourism and heritage.
A new Corsham Area Tourism Association has been established to work with hotels and promote the town to visitors.
The building’s former Heritage Room will now be rented to commercial groups, as well as host a series of permanent displays.
The final change will be the creation of a Made in Corsham shop.
Peter Tapscott, chairman of the Friends of Corsham Area Heritage Centre, said: “We’re currently working to get it all ready, but hopefully it will all be up and running by Easter.”
