Volunteers needed at Upton TIC

Volunteers are needed to help run Upton Tourist Information and Heritage Centre.

The centre, based in the historic Pepperpot in Upton upon Severn, provides an important service to visitors to the town.

Malvern Hills District Council, which runs the service, is seeking people with a few hours to spare each week and who like meeting and helping people.

Volunteers would provide a warm welcome to visitors, offer information and advice on the area, and sell gifts. Volunteers will also help to open the centre and offer support for the TIC staff at busy periods.

Some knowledge of the Upton area and its history would be helpful although training will be provided.

Simon Smith, Economic Development Manager at Malvern Hills District Council, said "The centre is open throughout the year to welcome visitors and provides a wealth of information on attractions, events, accommodation and its fascinating history.

“The TIC also helps the local tourism economy, and volunteering at the centre is a great support to tourists, residents and businesses”.

Anyone interested in volunteering can pop into the TIC in Upton or call on 01684 594200 for more information.
