However, could you research what local attractions there are in our local area. Once you have researched what is around here can you create a 'Relaunch' leaflet for that attraction. Think that this attraction needs to draw attention to the attraction after being closed for so long. On the front, you'll need to grab the attention of the reader, while inside you will need to tell their visitors if there are any changes to opening times, facilities etc. Maybe over the closure something new has been created or built.

Good luck!
