To support tourism and economic regeneration in the town, we have installed a Tourism Information Access point in the Library.

The information point signposts visitors to the Hello Shepton and Visit Somerset websites to show them what there is to do and where they can go in the local area. We have also produced some flyers that visitors can take!

Local businesses, organisations and charities can add their events, listings and venues to Hello Shepton for free and it is promoted by the Council in and around the local area.

Matt Harrison commented: “Hello Shepton was launched as a one-stop online place for organisations, businesses, charities and any group that contributes to life in Shepton Mallet to share their events and details. Reflecting the way people find out information nowadays, it is always accessible and always being updated.”

“The Town Council was conscious though that visitors to our town centre don’t have a Tourist Information Centre to call in on; however, our wonderful, modern library has extensive opening hours and provides a natural base to locate a physical place for everyone to access Hello Shepton. Come on in and have a play…. And if you want your community event or organisation details added, simply visit”
