Discover Wimborne – which was cancelled last year – is to go ahead in April, albeit digitally.
Wimborne BID organise the event, and BID manager, Tammy Sleet, said, “We wanted to provide something that connected people to the town, and Discover Wimborne is a great way to do that. There’ll be a dedicated website, and people will be able to view videos, download activities and see special offers.
“We never thought of doing a virtual festival before the pandemic but in future, even when we are allowed to get together again, I am sure an element of online will stay with Discover Wimborne.”
Some of the events on offer include a virtual version of the well-loved craft market, Handmade Wimborne, a virtual food tour, and some top tips from specialist businesses.
As well as the website www.discoverwimborne.com, the events will be supported by Wimborne’s digital shop window, ShopAppy. ShopAppy. Supported by Wimborne BID and Dorset LEP, it gives an opportunity for every business in Wimborne to sell online. It has been a lifeline to some businesses in Wimborne and allows customers passionate about shopping local to support their favourite businesses, even if they are closed.
The platform will play host to the Handmade Wimborne market. Visit www.shopappy.com/wimborne.
