Lichfield Visitor Information Centre has been awarded the ‘We’re Good To Go’ UK-wide industry standard, a VisitEngland and VisitBritain initiative to provide confidence for tourism as the sector reopens.

Achieving the standard and supporting mark shows that Lichfield Visitor Information Centre is following government and public health guidance.

It also means it has carried out a Covid-19 risk assessment to make sure it has the required processes and protocols in place to safeguard visitors.

These measures include making hand sanitiser available at the door, requiring visitors to wear a face covering, ensuring social distancing, and installing a screen at the information desk.

Councillor Iain Eadie, cabinet member for visitor economy at Lichfield District Council, expressed his pleasure at the centre getting the award.

He said: "I am really pleased all the measures we have put in place to make the Visitor Information Centre as safe as possible have been recognised and that we’ve achieved the ‘We’re Good To Go’ standard.

"This is just part of our work to boost tourism across the district in a measured way, and we look forward to welcoming more people to our Visitor Information Centre and highlighting all that our fabulous district has to offer."

Based in St Mary’s on the Market Square, the Visitor Information Centre is also the place to sign up for the new Visit Lichfield Card, which gives cardholders exclusive special offers and discounts.
