MEMBERS of a tourism group celebrated the launch of the new Visit Romsey website.

The Romsey Future Tourism Group, are encouraging residents of the town to help boost the website’s position in search engine rankings.

Mark Edgerley, town centre manager, said: “Even though the new website is packed with information to encourage visitors in to the area and promote Romsey’s events, it’s currently below the old and defunct Visit Romsey website ( in the search engines.

"We’re urging everyone, please, visit, promote it on Facebook, add links to it from your websites, share it on Twitter and include it on printed publicity.

"The more activity on the site, the quicker we’ll climb in the rankings, which will not only help attract visitors to the town, but encourage them to stay longer.”
