Staff at Lyme Regis Tourist Information Centre (TIC) have been thanked for their service as the centre has now closed.

Trudi Robson, Miranda Horsfield and Fiona Common were presented with flowers from well-wishers after the building closed last week.

Lyme Regis TIC has closed as the town council, which owns the building, terminated the lease to Dorset Council as it wants to refurbish it and use the space.

The councils are still in discussion regarding the future of the service in the town.

A spokesman said: “It was good for the community to have this opportunity to thank them for their work and support over many years. We wished them all the beast in their future endeavours.”

Visitor information can still be accessed during this time by calling 01297 442138, emailing LTIC@dorsetcouncil.gov.uk or the webform on the Lyme Regis TIC webpage on the Dorset Council website.
