Visit Gloucester launches My Gloucester Passport
Visit Gloucester is running a summer activity, for residents and visitors alike, called My Gloucester Passport.
It’s sponsored by Gloucester Bid, Gloucester Quays, the Aspire Trust and a number of other local businesses and attractions.
The citywide event launching on August 1 and running until September 5, is aimed at children to encourage them to explore the amazing city of Gloucester.
Visitors can pick up one of the 1,000 passports at the Tourist Information Centre in the Museum of Gloucester.
Affixed to a Lanyard, sponsored by Gloucester Bid, ‘My Gloucester Passport’ is a loyalty style card, which sees participants collect a sticker from eight of the 18 sticker destinations to complete their passports.
Once they have eight different stickers, they take their passport to Customer Services at Gloucester Quays, to get their passport stamped and receive a fabulous aluminum drinks bottle, sponsored by Gloucester Quays.
Everyone who completes their passport can then enter the Grand Prize Draw backed by the Aspire Trust who are offering a six month Aspire Academy membership.
Councillor Richard Cook, Leader of Gloucester City Council, said: “The Gloucester Passport is the perfect opportunity for families this summer to get active and explore their city. It has been designed to promote sustainable transport by showcasing the walkable nature of our city. It’s a great way to celebrate the varied range of shops, museums, and activities visitors and residents can enjoy within a 30-minute walk. We are extremely grateful to the Gloucester BID and Gloucester Quays as well as all of the other businesses for their help and support with this trail. “
The activity is free of charge, so everyone is encouraged to get involved and enjoy discovering places in the city they may never have been before, as well as visiting old favourites!
