Thank you to Jude Leitch
TMI would like to thank Jude very much for all her work on behalf of the TMI and its members, particularly as former TMI Chair.
Jude was Director of Tourism at Northumberland Tourism, and also chaired the National Rural Tourism Group, lobbying government for changes to benefit tourism businesses and support to help rural tourism areas compete.
In 2018 Northumberland was crowned ‘Best County/Destination’ in the British Tourism Awards, establishing the county as Britain’s favourite ‘staycation’ choice.
Jude got involved with TMI in 2010 and joined the board in 2015.
We wish Jude all the best as she now concentrates on running her Bed & Breakfast business on the Northumberland Coast.
