Thank you Jean for a fine effort at Warwick Infomation Centre
JEAN Frankland has reached her 30th year as a volunteer Tourist Officer at the Warwick Visitor Information Centre.
Rob Hamilton of Destination Southern Downs estimates over the years Jean has spoken with more than 40,000 visitors.
"It is amazing that Jean has committed herself to more than 30 years of voluntary service to Warwick, the region and the nation," he said.
Jean said the volunteer work had provided plenty of fun.
"I've had a good time and met some wonderful people," she said.
The Visitor Information Centres in Warwick and Stanthorpe are gateways for visitors to the Southern Downs and Granite Belt. They provide a sample of the region - its people, its experiences, its services; and demonstrate the true character of the Southern Downs region.
The VICs are staffed by volunteers.
These men and women take pride in delivering a consistent and competent visitor experience.
And they know the hidden gems that make a visit to the Southern Downs and Granite Belt an unforgettable experience.
Are you someone who knows the pleasure of living on the Southern Downs and Granite Belt?
Do you appreciate this beautiful environment and want to share that appreciation with others?
If so, why not act locally and volunteer.
A few hours of your time each week or month could make all the difference to the future success of the Southern Downs and Granite Belt as a tourist destination.
Training and a familiarisation tour throughout the Southern Downs and Granite Belt is offered to all volunteers.
