A BRAND-new website has been launched to show off the best of Whitchurch trade and tourism.

The site – visitwhitchurchshropshire.co.uk – is live and is chock-full of links directing visitors to what businesses are available in the town.

Joe Sheldon, from Audlem Printers – based in Whitchurch – is behind the design of the site and he admitted he was proud to be asked to put it together.


He added that it will demonstrate the depth of what is available in the town for both residents and visitors.

“The website is to show the best of Whitchurch and why we think it’s such a great town,” he said.

“The idea is to have the hope to attract people from further afield to come to see just what Whitchurch has to offer.

“It has an events page where we hope to let people know what and when things are happening.

“Whitchurch is a fantastic area to visit with so many independent shops, offering an array of items such as gifts, antiques, homewares and clothing.

“And we want to shout about how proud we are of where we live and work.

“Whitchurch has the luck of location because it’s open to all of Shropshire but because it’s the north of the county, it has Cheshire tourists too.

“I was delighted to be asked to design the website for the town because it’s a project that means so much to so many people.

“The people in the town love Whitchurch and if I can help them achieve more business and mote tourists through the website then that would will be fantastic.

“I’m really proud of the work so fingers crossed it works.”

The website has a variety of easily-used tabs and links for businesses in the town, and are grouped into relevant categories.

For example, the many independent local businesses in Whitchurch – ranging from auctioneers Trevanion in Station Road to estate agents and more – are all under one tab.
