TOWN TEAM AIMS

Pop up restaurants, community shops, galleries, promote reduction in business rates & landlord responsibilities ...

Fill Empty Shops

Promote Tiverton to the tourist attractions to get the tourists to visit other attractions nearby and also Tiverton Town itself.

Voucher Scheme

It’s not glamorous but improved signage works. Signs to Tiverton to be more attractive & signs in Tiverton to be more helpful.

Signage

Establish and promote a town centre coach park to encourage touring companies & day trippers to come to Tiverton.

Coach Park
New Coach Park.  There are no coach parks in the town. We've done a deal with Banburys to convert their car park into a coach park.  Attraction Visitors will be able to pop into town.

Schemes to encourage for residents of Tiverton & the surrounding villages to choose Tiverton for their weekly shopping.

Shopper Loyalty Scheme

We want to show that Tiverton is a fantastic, vibrant and eclectic mix of shops..  We are very lucky with a wide range of retailers.  We know that there are a number of empty larger shops in the town but this is due to national issues and not specifically because of issues in our town.  We are the largest town in Mid Devon and with rising fuel costs it makes sense for people to use their nearest town.  Rural residents need to be enticed (and reminded) how great it is in Tiverton.


Loyalty Scheme

Firstly, we are thinking about having a Tiverton Shopping bag.  We don’t think carrying a card is going to work...in other towns they get too complicated to manage.  


Ours is simple.  Use the bag in town and get access to special offers that the shops provide.


Each shop will have offers for you throughout the year.  E.g. buy a loaf and a couple of pasties and get a free cake.  Or buy lunch for two and get a free coffee.

This is in the early stages, we have trialed the bag design by getting 250 bags (see pic) and having those in 11 locations. They have all mostly gone.


We had them in the following locations :


Westexe - Landrake Farm Shop, Easylife & Kaladeiscope

Fore Street - The Wool Merchant, Snob

Bampton Street - Reapers, Costa Coffee

Gold Street - Wellington Boots, Lantic Gallery, Flying Pickle

Plus the Tiverton Museum of Mid Devon Life


Next step is to work on the offers and perhaps a new design…

We had some feedback at the public meeting in August that the bags were “sexist” and men wouldn’t use them… well we will see how it goes and maybe introduce a golf club bag - you’ll gets lots of muesli in it...
