Alnwick Town Guide Volunteer team have celebrated their hard work over the year with a slap-up fish and chip supper.

The volunteers operate as part of Alnwick Community Trust, which aims to improve the social and economic health of the town by working closely with local businesses, voluntary organisations, residents and Northumberland County Council.

Linda Wood-Mitchell, chairwoman of the trust said: “During 2022 guides have worked tremendously hard, meeting and greeting over 3000 tourists as well as helping with queries and distributing information leaflets including the Alnwick Good Food Guide and the Percy Lion trail App.
