Mosgiel is the latest addition to a national ‘‘motorhome friendly town’’ scheme facilitated by the New Zealand Motor Caravan Association.

Speaking at the accreditation ceremony in Mosgiel last week, Dunedin Mayor Dave Cull said Mosgiel was the ‘‘ideal location for motorhome visitors, with a mix of rural charm, excellent local amenities and a number of attractions in the local area’’.

In a statement, association chief executive Bruce Lochore said that the accreditation was a ‘‘win-win’’ for everyone.

‘‘For Mosgiel, official recognition as motorhome friendly will encourage more of our members to stop, stay and spend. And for motorhomers, the town’s status as motorhome friendly is a clear indication that they can expect a warm welcome.’’

The motor caravan association has more than 80,000 members in New Zealand.

At the ceremony, Mr Cull was given a certificate and two ‘‘motorhome-friendly town’’ signs for display in Mosgiel.
