VISITORS to Littlehampton will be able to find the town’s tourist attractions much more easily thanks to new signs.

The signs, which are a mixture of fingerpost and easy-to-read maps, were put up earlier this month and are already proving a hit.

Celia Thomson-Hitchcock, Littlehampton Town Team Lead of Portas Pilot Project, said the new signage pointed towards a strong partnership with Littlehampton Town Council and Arun District Council – which helped get the regeneration project off the ground.

“We are thrilled that we will now have clear and concise signage that we have all been working towards achieving over the past years for our valuable tourist and economic growth,” she said.

The signs provide a better link to the town centre, seafront and riverside, making it easier for visitors to navigate their way around the Littlehampton.

The new signs have been placed up in the High Street, along the seafront and by the river.

John Edjvet, Littlehampton Town Centre Regeneration Officer, said: “This project has very much been driven in partnership with the local traders who are very active in promoting Littlehampton and to improving the town for residents, workers and visitors alike.”

The costs of the signs has been funded through section 106 grants.

It is hoped that tourist information boards will be installed on the riverside walkway, expanding on the existing boards and giving tourists a flavour of the town’s nautical heritage
