Top of the class with new gift packs

John Freeman
School children and teachers in Lancaster can now buy visiting students the ideal gift pack to remember their time in the district.

Lancaster Tourist Information Centre (TIC) has launched the new gift pack after regularly receiving requests from local schools for gift ideas to give to exchange students and retiring staff.

The packs can include pens, pencils, key rings, notepads, boxes of chocolates and glassware plus much more. They range from £5 to £10 and can be individually tailored to suit the occasion.

The Lancaster branded gifts are a great way to promote the area and are ideal for student trips and official school visits.

The gift packs and other fantastic gift ideas are available to view on Lancaster City Council's tourism website:

Coun Abbott Bryning, cabinet member with responsibility for tourism in Lancaster, said: “This is another great way of promoting the district to visitors. I’m sure exchange students or visitors to schools will be delighted to receive one of these gift packs. ”

For information on buying a pack please contact Lancaster TIC Manager Paula Higgin on 01524 582394 or Visitor Services Officer Allison Thomas on 01524 582397. Alternatively you can contact Lancaster TIC by email at
