THE SILVER MOUNTAIN EXPERIENCE, LLYWERNOG, PONTERWYD, ABERYSTWYTH, CEREDIGION, SY23 3AB
At the Silver Mountain Experience there have been very exciting developments recently, in the areas of visitor experience through to the conservation and development of the fascinating heritage here at this unique Silver-Lead Mine, which dates back to over 250 years ago.
Silver Mountain would like to invite MWT members to to one of their local business network sessions on Thursday 7th June or Tuesday 19th June.
The sessions will include two free guided tours, an opportunity to see the surface attractions and developments around the site, and to join us for a cuppa and a chat in the café.
All they ask in return is that you take away some of their leaflets, events flyers and a poster to display in your business.
We very much hope you will be able to come. Spaces are limited.
If you are unable to make any of these dates, feel free to contact them on 01970 890 620 and they can help arrange another time for you to come for a complimentary visit!

GDPR - G-Day Tomorrow - Don't panic!
We have had calls from a number of members concerned and confused about the upcoming changes relating GDPR.
Firstly - Don't panic. The latest advice on the Information Commissioners Officer website (ICO) can be found on https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/marketing/ and MWT has asked Business Wales to see if they are able to arrange a GDPR session tailored specifically to the tourism industry.
For now, we suggest that:
Electronic mail marketingThe most important thing to remember is that you can only carry out unsolicited electronic marketing if the person you're targeting has given you their permission.
However, there is an exception to this rule. Known as the 'soft opt-in' it applies if the following conditions are met;
Your Legal Requirements
Note - The customer’s rights under the GDPR do not over-ride the requirements of other legislation
It is important to note that the customer’s rights under the GDPR don’t over-ride the data requirements of other legislation. For example, the Immigration (Hotel Records) Order 1972 requires you to record the full name and nationality of all guests and to keep this information for 12 months. As such, a guest cannot ask you to delete this information from your records until 12 months have elapsed. Similarly, a customer cannot ask you to delete any financial information you are required to keep for tax purposes.
If you're unsure on GDPR and what it means then the Visit Britain Pink Books has a nice summery from the Tourism Alliance- See here for more info
