Mayor welcomes visitor centre reopening


Mayor of Truro Bert Biscoe recently visited the newly reopened visitor information centre to welcome back the staff and customers.

The Visit Truro team have worked hard to implement Government guidance and have completed all risk assessments to reassure customers both an enjoyable and safe visiting experience.

The centre is operated by Truro City Council. It not only answers enquiries from visitors but also residents of Truro and Cornwall who are either planning their days out or looking for further information on the City and its services.

Since it relocated nearly two year ago, the retail offer has expanded and is now popular for seeking out that unique Cornish gift, with 95% of products being sourced from local Cornish businesses.

Mayor Biscoe said: “I’m very glad to see the Truro Information Centre open again. Since it moved into its present premises in Boscawen Street many more people now use it. It is as useful for local people as for visitors. The City Council took over a rundown building – a small gem of Truro’s 1960’s architectural community – and with a few deft touches of design and common sense, has made it a hub for the town.”

Visit Truro manager, Abi Steel, added: “During the lock down period we used the Visit Truro website to create useful information about services available to residents including the city’s takeaway food offer. We are a call centre, a communications centre, an information centre and as we see it a customer service desk for the town.
