Tour Guides for Herefordshire and Welsh Boarder
Marches Tours & Talks – our tour guide association – takes its name from this area of western England, which is called ‘The Marches’ meaning a ‘boundary’ – the boundary between England and Wales. One of the counties in these Marcher lands is Herefordshire – still a secret place known only to those who really seek it out. Here you will see an unspoilt rural landscape at its most beautiful, where you can wander and walk. We have no motorways and no theme parks – just a slower pace of life which gives you time to think and relax.
Each of the CDs are on sale at £5 from local Tourist information centres or direct from marches Tours and Talks (£6 inc p&p) or visit http://www.marchestourstalks.co.uk/

How many of us have a loyalty card loitering in our purses and wallets. Now in the first scheme of its kind in the UK there is now the chance to obtain a loyalty card that is loyal to local shops and businesses in Ross and across Herefordshire. If you take advantage of this great opportunity cardholders get exclusive treats and offers along with invitations to new product launches as well as exclusive Truffle Cardholder events. The Truffle loyalty card promotes Herefordshire’s local businesses and helps them flourish. In short there will be weekly email of offers from the participating businesses which are collated by Truffle Herefordshire, and sent to cardholders. This will be backed up by a website and viral marketing using Twitter and Facebook. Customers are able to sign up for the scheme at any of 220 shops and business already signed up including shops, restaurants, bars, pubs, nightclubs and many more. You can even sign up from the comfort of your own home by going online to www.truffleherefordshire.co.uk and the card will be sent to you. Businesses have shared access to Truffle card holders to promote their business to them, and they are part of a scheme that aims to redress the balance from huge corporates to smaller local businesses. This has been made possible with support and funding from Herefordshire Council and Hereford City partnership. Truffle Herefordshire is a Not for Profit Enterprise.
