Purpose and Aim
We aim to promote a positive image of Cowes and East Cowes through social media and via our website with the intention of encouraging more people to visit and stay in both towns.
What are we doing?
- We have a website (this one!) that provides information including how to get here, where to stay, where to eat and what to do. Each business can have an entry on our site
- We are busy on twitter promoting positive views of the towns and encouraging people to visit
- We post scenic views of Cowes and East Cowes on Instagram to let people know what a beautiful area we live in
- We provide information about and links to other organisations and facilities which may help people visiting, such as Red Funnel and the town councils
- We have other plans in place including providing walking routes through the towns to encourage people to spend time here and providing information to visiting cruise ships
