Why not #DiscoverHambleton?

Launch of Discover Hambleton

Today sees the launch of the new #DiscoverHambleton social media feeds, aimed at offering a comprehensive guide to what’s going on across Hambleton.

#DiscoverHambleton is a digital communications campaign which consists of a Facebook and Twitter feed, which from today will be populated with information on Hambleton events, visitor attractions, café & restaurants, ideas for days out and much more.

The feeds will act as a one-stop shop for residents, visitors and tourists who want to find out more about what the beautiful district of Hambleton has to offer, with local leisure and tourism businesses urged to provide information about their business to be considered for the feeds.

The launch event which was held at the World of James Herriot in Thirsk this morning, offered an opportunity for representatives from the Hambleton tourism sector to come together to mark the launch of this new digital community which will support those businesses in recovering from the Covid crisis.

Leader of Hambleton District Council, Councillor Mark Robson said: “As we move to step three on the Government’s roadmap to recovery, the #DiscoverHambleton concept is both perfect timing and great news.

“#DiscoverHambleton is set to be a really useful source of information for everything that’s going on across Hambleton, meaning residents or visitors can check the feeds for ideas and inspiration when planning a day out.

“My hope is people follow the feeds, and it encourages them to visit our market towns and surrounding countryside for a day out or to enjoy a staycation.

“After such a challenging year for businesses involved in leisure and tourism, my hope is this new online presence offers much needed practical support in encouraging people to get out and about in our district and enjoy what’s on offer.

“This is great news for Hambleton businesses who want to put their business on the map and will encourage both residents and visitors to discover all our wonderful district has to offer.”
