Visitor information centre to remain at Hollis House in Stow for the time being

Share this article

Cotswold District Council is currently in talks with an un-named third party about the relocation of its much valued Visitor Information Centre (VIC).

Whilst these talks are in progress, an agreement has been reached for a scaled-down service to remain at Hollis House, temporarily from April 18th. The Visitor Information Point (VIP) will be available alongside the Stow Festival Organisers, who will be moving into the building later on this month.

The VIP will remain temporarily in the centre of Stow providing information only, which will mean there will be no shop, accommodation booking or other sales for the time being.

Cotswold District Council has been working closely with Stow Town Council, Gloucestershire County Council, representatives of the business community in Stow and St Edwards Hall Trustees, all of whom form the Vic working party; to find a new location for the VIC.

Cllr David Fowles, Cotswold District Council’s portfolio holder for sport, culture and enterprise, said:

“Cotswold District Council is committed to provide visitor information in the North Cotswolds.”

“Whilst we are in the process of negotiating a long-term solution for Stow, a scaled-down visitor information point will remain open at Hollis House after April 18th, providing information services only. I am determined that the long-term solution to the visitor service in Stow will provide cost savings without removing visitor information provision from the town.”
