Northumberland County Council and Northumberland College have teamed up to offer some great free courses for tourism businesses. If you're employed in the tourism industry and would like to increase your knowledge of some of our key cultural assets this is not to be missed!
This is a pilot scheme which will feature four free of charge courses and a cooking course that requires a little financial contribution.
The first Amble Puffin Festival is now underway! Running from the 18th May – 1st June the festival celebrates everything puffin! There’s a great activities PDF you can download giving you loads of info about all the events taking place. There’s loads of ways you can support the event. If you’re an avid tweeter keep an eye out for @AmblePuffinFest or on Facebook there are some stunning images being shared via their page.

2013 is a busy year for Northumberland. To keep things simple we’ve created a printable PDF that you can download and use to update your guests with all the great events taking place this summer.
The PDF features highlight events that your customers will want to hear about. It’s a trouble-free way to make sure your visitors know What’s On when they stay. Why not offer to book tickets in advance of their trip?
We will now ask that all businesses that advertise on our website, or in our publications, sign up to our customer charter, agreeing to provide a good level of customer service for visitors.
During our Tourism Forum held last week we asked attendees to discuss how they felt Northumberland’s geography should be presented to visitors. There were some great ideas proposed which we will now need to explore in more detail.
