Visit Bradford, Bradford Councils Tourism Service and the Haworth based tourist attraction, the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, are working together on a new way of providing visitor information in Haworth.
The Keighley and Worth Valley Railway have allocated space within their Haworth Station booking office for a Visitor Information Point, which will offer information about the local area to tourists and visitors.
Visit Bradford are now looking for local people who are interested in being Volunteer Ambassadors to provide a warm Yorkshire welcome to visitors at the new Visitor Information Point.
The team are looking for enthusiastic people who are passionate about the local area, who would be able to help visitors to make the most of their visit, by sparing a bit of their time each month to work as part of the Volunteer Ambassador team. The team will be based at Haworth Station on the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway and will receive full training including in customer service skills.
A drop in session is being held on Wednesday 26 June between 10am and 2pm at Haworth Old School Room for people to find out more about the new information point and what volunteering opportunities are available.
Councillor Sarah Ferriby, Bradford Council’s Executive Member for Healthy People and Places, said: “This is a fantastic partnership opportunity between KWVR and Bradford Council. We are fortunate in our district that we have people who have great local knowledge about their area and are passionate about letting people know about the opportunities for visitors. These are the type of people we would love to see come forward to take part in this innovative project and become Volunteer Ambassadors.”
Rebecca Atkins, Commercial Manager at KWVR, said: “We are really excited to be able to assist in providing an Information Point for the local area, we appreciate the positive impact it has and feel that it is an important part of the Haworth community and for tourism in the Worth Valley.”
