About us

What we do

The Higham Ferrers Tourism, Business and Community Partnership was set up in 2002 by a group of volunteers who live locally and who are willing to devote time and energy to promoting the town, through tourism and regeneration activities.

What do we do?

The group works in partnership with local businesses, the Town Council and community groups, to stimulate interest, growth and community cohesion, and thus to support, facilitate and co-ordinate activity within the town.

Our committee is made up of people who encompass a wide range of interests in the town.

Which heritage site do we manage?

Tourism works in partnership with English Heritage to manage the important heritage site in the town – Chichele College. 

This 15th-century building is not only used by a number of groups on a regular basis, but also now has a well-established medieval garden. Tourism has raised funds to improve the toilet facilities, providing disabled facilities with suitable access, and to restore the Cloister Garth garden area in 2012.

How do we raise money?

To fund such improvements we arrange or contribute to, a number of town activities:

Chichele Garden Fair

Where does the money go?

We have provided, and contributed to, many community-wide projects:

… and provided a variety of entertainment for visitors and residents of all age groups.
