TownCrierWATP is a forum for all local businesses to gather and spread information, express a view about our town, and most importantly to work together for the benefit of all.

This website is the way to exchange news, to promote businesses, share in each other’s successes, have immediate access to each other, and to have first-hand news on matters of interest.

Here you can find details of our activities and those of other organisations, of which there are many!

We aim to arrange regular gatherings (either 8.00am Breakfast Meetings -dubbed B4B4WA , or 6.00pm After Work Tea and Cake Meetings – AWT4WA), but our main meetings are held every second Tuesday at the Town Hall, at 9.15 am.  These are Steering Committee meetings, but are open to all interested parties.

We organise a number of now annual events, such as the Pancake Races in Sun Street, the Christmas Window competition, the distribution of Billams’ Turkey Sandwiches to Sun Street shops (sorry everyone doesn’t get one!).  We also work to create a better environment for residents and visitors alike.  Some examples are:  The Meridian Line Mosaic in Sun Street, the new directional finger posts around town, and currently we are working with local experts to create a Heritage Trail, with new information boards and an accompanying leaflet.

Always working to improve our town!

Although this is our current website, it is a fact that most people gain their information from Facebook or other social media platforms. We therefore tend to use our Facebook page as a more immediate way to keep local people informed.

We still hope to maintain personal contact with all local businesses, thus helping to create and maintain our desire to work closely together.


Of course, the success of your business matters most to you, but it also contributes to the economy and well-being of our town, and so every business very important to us all.
