Engaging with the rapidly growing digital audience on social media, Discover Rutland will be showcasing the brand-new range of merchandise, emblazoned with 'RUTLAND' across hoodies, sweatshirts, tops and hats for both adults and children, by offering an online giveaway through Facebook, Instagram and the new TikTok account.
