Visitor helped change tourist signs

THE Visitor has been congratulated for helping to secure revamped tourism signs for the resort.

Campaigners had been working for 10 years to give the brown signs off junction 35 of the M6 motorway a much-needed makeover.

But only weeks after our front page story, “It’s not a good sign”, highlighted the sorry state of the signs, city councillors rubber stamped an agreement with the county council to put £5,000 each towards revamping tourists’ first impressions of the resort at last Wednesday’s budget meeting.
