FINAL touches are being made to a new website which will showcase everything Shipston has to offer tourists.

The site is being created through the efforts of the town's Tourism Group and is intended to provide information about the attractions of the North Cotswolds and Stratford, as well as what Shipston itself can offer visitors.

Thanks to financial help from an 'Operation Footfall' grant from Warwickshire County Council, the new site will feature a searchable database of accommodation, eating places and events.

The site is currently being tested before launch.

“We were surprised and delighted when we started to do the research and found how many accommodation providers there were in and around Shipston,” said Tourism Group chairman, Trev Trevethick.

“It was also very encouraging to see how many responded when we asked for their details to be put on the database.’
