These visitors will come from down the road, across the country and around the world. They will arrive on holiday, to conduct business, to visit friends and family and to further their education. The money they spend will create jobs, sustain business and help support a wide range of facilities and service to residents. I took a telephone call in the i-SITE Visitor Centre last week from a Wellington resident wanting to know where they could bring the family to see the snow in Upper Hutt. Unfortunately at that stage the snow was already gone, but I guided them to Kaitoke Regional Park as that was where they had seen photos in the snow. The call made me think about the wide range of reasons why people visit Upper Hutt and the benefits we derive from their visits. If local government, com- munities and the visitor indus- try work in partnership we can strengthen the industry’s con- tribution to the sustain- able economic development of our city and region. It is a timely to reflect on the wide range of activities and attractions that draw people here. Rugby World Cup 2011 is already filling up part of our accommodation sector at peak match times. In its own small way the recent snow attracted people and attention to Upper Hutt. Our own residents do not always know what is on their own door- step or have even visited the sites. I have been talking to people who ventured up Mount Climie last week to enjoy the snow. The whole Wellington region is well-known in the industry to have an above average ‘‘Visiting Friends and Relatives’’ market (VFR). This means we host friends in our homes rather than them staying in commercial accommodation. The challenge then is to make sure local people have knowledge of our attrac- tions and can either take their guests to the locations or know where to send their visitors. If you want to improve your local knowledge check out our website upperhuttcity.com. We also have a free city guide map of Upper Hutt at the i-SITE Visitor Centre, 90 Main St. Call in and pick up a copy. It has lots of useful information on some of our hidden secrets. It is amazing how many visitors still arrive to check out the Lord of the Rings film locations. The map has a reminder of these. Don’t forget the Visa Welling- ton on a Plate food festival, Friday till Sunday, August 21. In Upper Hutt The Short Straw Cafe, Mayfair Cafe, Bell House, Staglands and the Furnace are taking part – check out VisaWel- lingtonOnaPlate.com.
