The first time you use the service you will be required to bring proof of identification and you will be asked to fill in a short registration form. You will then be asked to pay a small annual membership fee to maintain the centre. The staff will then train you how to use the equipment. This should take no longer than 15-30 minutes and when you feel ready off you go! It is recommended to ring the office in advance to arrange the loan of your equipment. Opening Times: Tue - Sat (excluding Bank Holidays) 10am - 3pm 01872 241813 www.gotruro.co.uk
Truro is the retail and commercial centre of Cornwall and boasts an enviable range of independent shops and multiples. In a compact city centre, this strong and diverse mix is unique - Truro is not a clone of other towns. Its intriguing and eclectic offer of art galleries, bars, restaurants, nightclubs, a cinema, the Hall for Cornwall, Truro Cathedral and the Royal Cornwall Museum make it a year round destination for those who live, work or visit the city. Truro was the first location in Cornwall to introduce a Business Improvement District (BID) as a method of realising the views and aspirations of local businesses to improve their trading environment, along with an appropriate budget and resource to deliver. Truro is also the first location in Cornwall to successfully renew its BID. A Business Improvement District (BID) is a precisely defined geographical area of a town, city or any other commercial district where ratepayers have voted to invest collectively in local improvements that are in addition to those already delivered by the local authority. Truro’s BID is delivered by Totally Truro a dedicated not-for-profit company – and is delivering projects such as this guide and this year’s stunning festive lighting scheme.
