Have you seen the recent coverage of Minehead's new Gift Card Scheme?
The Minehead card, due to be launched in the next few weeks, will make the perfect present for any occasion and will help to support our local businesses by keeping the spend in town!
How will it work?
Please take a look at the Town and City Gift Cards website for more information.
Each town operating a gift card scheme has a Home Page on their site - Minehead's is under construction at the moment while businesses join our scheme.
From this page, you will be able to order and load a card with the amount you wish to gift and it will be sent to you, or direct to your giftee.
We are planning that you will also be available to pick up gift cards in Minehead, initially from the Minehead Tourist Information Centre, if you would prefer not to use the online option.
All sorts of shops and services can join the scheme so there will be a wide range of businesses where the card can be used and, importantly, it can be used at multiple different businesses until the balance is used up.
Here are a couple of examples of Gift Card schemes:
You can see many more on the Town and City Gift Cards website
If you're a gift giver...
Look out for an announcement about the launch which is planned for early April. As soon as the scheme goes live, you will be able to order cards and the shops and other local businesses will be ready to accept them.
