Transport bosses challenged to boost tourism in Oldham Borough

On tram stations across Oldham Borough there are very photogenic scenes of Didsbury park in south Manchester advertised to Metrolink passengers.  These are part of a recent tourism drive.  Councillor Howard Sykes MBE applauds the strategy to advertise different parts of the region and contacted Transport for Greater Manchester to see how they can build on this.  He wants Oldham Borough to get a fair share of the benefit.  This is so that local businesses and people can profit from additional foot fall. 

Howard Sykes

“Right across Oldham Borough we have a rich industrial heritage.  Impressive architecture and areas of astounding and unique rural beauty are our daily gift.  I have asked that adverts supporting Oldham’s tourism and first class countyside might appear on Metrolink platforms across Greater Manchester.”

“It is an honour to be a local councillor in Shaw, a very green area much loved by nature seekers internationally and locally.  Plans should be made to include as much as Oldham Borough, with all its hills and heritage, into this huge marketing campaign.”
