Volunteers and staff at our Information centres provide an invaluable resource, engaging with visitors face-to-face, providing local knowledge and increasing the visitor length of stay and spend whilst they are in our region.  The stories and advice they provide visitors inspires and enhances the experience for those who are seeking information.  The service and skill of our frontline ambassadors is something to embrace and reward and this program aims to provide exclusive benefits to those who deserve them at the same time as giving them the opportunity to grow their product knowledge in our vast region and beyond.
