AN ELECTRONIC information kiosk is to be installed in the newly designed St Benedict's Court in Huntingdon.

The information point - with a second screen at a lower level for use by people in wheelchairs - is similar to those already installed in The Great Whyte, Ramsey, and Market Hill, St Ives. It is due to be installed in October.

The screens will be live 24 hours, seven days a week offering access to Huntingdonshire District Council's website with information on council services including things to do, events to go to, places to stay and visit and directions to get there.

As reported by The Hunts Post, the current tourist information office, in Huntingdon Library is to close in the spring when the library will be demolished and rebuilt in a new centre as part of Huntingdon's town centre redevelopment programme.

The tourism service will then be run from Pathfinder House, the district council's headquarters, by telephone, fax and e-mail.

When Pathfinder House is later itself rebuilt, it is planned that tourist information will once again offer a face-to-face service.
