A TOWN has celebrated the launch of a new guide promoting what it has to offer.

The Woodbridge Town Guide 2006 includes a simplified map of the town marking major sites, and lists and describes accommodation, shops, restaurants and businesses and places to visit.

Town centre co-ordinator Marion Wells described the new guide, designed by local designer Glenn Travis of Rainbow Creative Design, as “fantastic”.

She hopes it will increase footfall in the town centre by providing a comprehensive directory of what is available.

It has been produced as a joint project between Woodbridge Town Centre Management Group, Woodbridge Chamber of Commerce, Rainbow Creative Design and Linn Barringer Ltd.

Dr Wells pointed out that the town offered a range of specialist shops that no supermarket or shopping centre could match, including 30 places to eat, 10 hairdressers, three barbers and two complementary health centres.

Website designer Linn Barringer has created a website at www.WoodbridgeTownGuide.co.uk where the guide can also be found.

“There are more than 100 independent shops run by owners who really understand the meaning of personal service,” said Dr Wells.

“This guide has really moved Woodbridge into another league and shows what a splendid choice shoppers have when they visit the town. The designs by Glenn were original and very clear and the final product is superb. We are optimistic that more businesses will want entries in the 2007 guide.”
