Moving here was just the beginning…

Welcome to Our Town!  


We aren’t currently visiting during the Pandemic, but hope to re-start basket delivery soon.

If you’ve moved here within the last year, Request a Visit from a Welcome Team Volunteer:

  • Special gifts and offers from local businesses!
  • Publications and information about community services, attractions, opportunities, and events!
  • A friendly visit and recommendations for our favorites!

The Peterborough Welcome Team is a volunteer group that welcomes new residents with a friendly visit and information about local organizations, businesses and services, samples and promotional items, all delivered in a beautiful, locally-made Peterboro Basket. The PWT also hosts Meet and Greet events to give new residents a chance to meet their Peterborough neighbors.

The PWT is an official committee of the Peterborough Economic Development Authority.

Be included in EVERY basket by providing 50 “special” items that are branded and valuable to the recipient (coupons, giveaways, samples). Brochures and business cards alone do not qualify.
Sponsor an upcoming Meet and Greet event: In exchange for providing refreshments, the event sponsor has an opportunity to showcase their business at the event, including signage and branding on related collateral material and promotion.
Donate a door prize for the Meet and Greet event: Businesses who provide a prize for the Meet and Greet event will be recognized at the event.
Bring materials for the Information Table at the Meet and Greet event.
Provide brochures and information that become part of the PWT library to be distributed as our volunteers bring targeted information to new residents.

It’s easy to partner! Register online. A member of our team will be in touch to follow up.
