New Summer Initiative - Appeal For Volunteers

An appeal has gone out from the tourist organisation Tourism St Andrews for volunteers for a new summer initiative!

The new organisation is hoping that coach visitors to the town can be met and greeted by St Andreans when they arrive.

The group estimates that around 40 tour buses with visitors from across the world arrive in the town each day during the summer – and those tourists need some direction!

“We tried this out at the Open in 2015, and it went down well,” Linda-anne Beaulier of Tourism St Andrews explained.  “We want to offer a service to visitors so they can make the most of their often short visit to the town. We want to make sure they have a great experience from the moment they get off the coach and point them in the right direction to suit their interests whether it be golf, heritage, shopping or dining.”

Volunteers can give as little as two hours a week to the project and will receive training.

“We are looking for people who have an interest in St Andrews and the wider Scotland with some history knowledge,” Linda-anne added.
