Jamie Driscoll, the region’s first elected mayor, will give a presentation on Wednesday, February 5, at the St James’s Centre, Pottergate, at 6pm.

Tim Kirton, Alnwick Town Council projects officer, said: “The North of Tyne Mayor’s role will be of great interest to Alnwick businesses.

“Having a North of Tyne elected Mayor has secured an additional £600million for Newcastle, North Tyneside and Northumberland over the next 30 years. The authority aims to use this to grow small businesses, create 10,000 jobs adding over £1billion in goods and services and levering over £2billion of private sector investment, and to boost the local economy by over £1billion.”

“We will hear from Mr Driscoll as to how Alnwick and its businesses can benefit from this.”For information, contact Tim Kirton on 07926 364339 or email [email protected]
