Tourism team gives info in a flash

Tourist information providers in Northallerton now have information available at their fingertips.

volunteer Ann Whitewick.
Thanks to a council grant, the town’s tourist information centre  has provided its volunteers with iPads, printers and training to access information such as bus timetables, train times, details of local accommodation, opening times and costs of local attractions to help deal with the enquiries.

The centre's Vivien Cragg said: “Over the years the way people access information has changed. We receive over 5000 enquiries per year – 70 per cent from tourists and 30 per cent from residents and being able to use the internet and iPads to help them is a real boost for us and helps us showcase everything that Hambleton has to offer.”
