White Rose Award Winner
Thirsk has the best TIC in Yorkshire
The thirty volunteers who operate Thirsk Tourist Information were surprised and delighted to be awarded the Visitor Information Award, sponsored by BBC Yorkshire, at the Welcome to Yorkshire White Rose Awards on Monday 9th November 2015
The award follows five seasons of growth since Thirsk Tourist Information became independent of Hambleton District Council in April 2011.
Harry Gration from BBC Look North presenting the award to Peter Rush said: ‘And what’s amazing, they are all volunteers’.
We are a welcoming group of volunteers with a wealth of knowledge and a passion for Thirsk and the surrounding region.
