DUNMOW’S mayor has sent out an appeal for more volunteers to man the town’s tourist information centre.

The facility has been moved to Dunmow Library in White Street having been operating at the back of Banana Travel since being launched in 2009.

The town council hosted a community event on Saturday to publicise the centre, and Cllr Clover is eager for more people to offer their time to support the facility.

“It is a very good facility that has a wealth of information and knowledge,” he said. “We can never have enough volunteers, we run from Monday to Friday but it would be most valuable on Saturday when we have more people in the town. Any help would be much appreciated.”Saturday’s event included children from St Mary’s Primary School, accompanied by assistant headteacher Clare Griffiths, displaying their artwork depicting what they would like to see in the recently-refurbished town square.

Pupils suggested renovating the derelict building adjoining the site into a café, and putting a water feature and more planting in the centre of the square. The display will remain at the library for a few more days.

The day also coincided with the one-year countdown to the Dunmow Flitch Trials.

Anyone interested in volunteering for the tourist information centre is asked to contact Dunmow Town Council on 01371 872406. No experience is necessary.
