A NEW social media campaign has been launched to help businesses in Wiltshire during the Covid-19 outbreak.

VisitWiltshire has created an Instagram story to encourage people to tag their favourite places to eat, drink, visit and stay in, when in Wiltshire.

The official tourist information site for Wiltshire is asking people to share this image to their personal Instagram story and nominate friends to do the same.

The aim is to raise awareness of businesses in the county and increase their online presence.

This Instagram story is the first in a series that will be posted by VisitWiltshire over the next month, that aims to highlight different businesses.

Head of marketing Fiona Errington said: “We’re excited about launching this campaign. We hope that people local to Wiltshire and previous visitors, will get behind this and support our businesses in a time when they desperately need our help.

“With this campaign, we want to inspire people living in Wiltshire to visit different restaurants, pubs, attractions and accommodation providers, when it’s safe for these businesses to open their doors again.

“We also want to encourage people who have visited Wiltshire previously, to return, and visit places they haven’t been to before.

“We’re also hoping to inspire people who haven’t been to our beautiful county before, to do so in the future.”
