Rothwell residents now have an easy-to-use hub for ‘all things Rowell’ after the launch of a new app.
It also includes a heritage trail showcasing some of Rothwell’s historic landmarks and a calendar of events happening in the town.
The app is supported by Rothwell Town Council and Rothwell Town Centre Partnership and was developed in partnership with company UK Town Apps. It has been funded by the town council and is intended to benefit the promotion of Rothwell using new technologies to support the town’s local and visitor economy.
Cllr Ash Davies, part of the Rothwell App Team, said: “I have really enjoyed being part of this brilliant community project and it is exciting to see the app go live.
"We are inviting everyone to download the app and share the word so it can be widely used and benefit the community.”
As an incentive to download there will also be a range of local offers available exclusively on the app.
Businesses and groups in the town have been encouraged to take part if they are not on the app already and are invited to contact [email protected] to get involved.
Chair of Rothwell Town Centre Partnership, Cllr Mark Cox, said: “We’re really pleased that the app has now been downloaded by over 900 users since launching.
"The app will help to better promote local businesses and groups.”
