A NEW visitor information centre will be opening its doors next week.

The new venue is located in the foyer of Maldon Town Hall in Market Hill.

It will be unveiled to the public next Monday (September 30) at 10.30am.

Discover Maldon ambassadors will be helping residents and visitors to find out about events, venues, travel information and tide times.

A new ticket purchasing facility for local events and performances will be provided in the Town Council Offices on the first floor of the Town Hall during office hours.

A town council spokesman said: “Town councillors believe that ensuring visitors and residents are able to find out about the fantastic places there are to visit in Maldon is key to supporting the economy of the town centre.

“Since learning that Maldon District Council will be closing the Tourist Information Centre in Wenlock Way 12 months ago, Maldon town councillors have been working on other ways the town council can provide this service and support the town effectively.”

The centre will be open on weekdays between 10.30am and 3.30pm.
