Northumberland Day is a great success

Today 7 Northumberland Food and drink producers ventured south to the House of Commons in Westminster, backed up by Visit Northumberland and Hadrians Wall Heritage representing tourism. We had over 500 people through our doors and everyone from the PM, to Cabinet Ministers, MPs from all parties and dozens of House of Commons staff were all curious to see why they should be visiting then eating and drinking in Northumberland. Jane from Tatse North East was amazing too - I will not repeat the story of her boots and the photographer. Huge credit to my office in London particularly Pete, who worked his socks off to make this happen. Massive thanks to the producers /tourist team who came down. Really hope you felt it was worth it - I and all of Westminster thought so. Fantastic Pics will follow soon.
