NEW tourist guides packed with information about what to do in Evesham are the best the town has ever had, according to the mayor.

Visitors to the Almonry Heritage and Tourist Information Centre in the town centre can pick up their free copy of the 2013 Your Guide to Evesham, which has been produced by the town council.

Robert Raphael, Mayor of Evesham, said: “I think it’s without a doubt the best town guide we have ever had. It’s an essential read for anyone visiting Evesham and the surrounding area, with details of the town’s rich history, its culture and leisure destinations, and the huge choice of festivals and events.
