A recruitment event will take place next week as Newbiggin Maritime Centre looks to recruit more volunteers.

Existing volunteers are also being invited to the event on Tuesday, July 9.

The centre has a team of dedicated volunteers helping out with the operation on a daily basis but with the busy summer months looming there is an opportunity for more volunteers to assist in the day to day operation of the facility.

Richard Martin, from the Newbiggin Heritage Partnership, said: “There is lots going on in the maritime centre and we want to invite more volunteers onto our team to drive the venture forward.

“Volunteers could be meeting the many visitors and telling them about our village, but they may prefer to help in the reception or shop.”

The event takes place between 6.30pm and 8.30pm.
