Danielle Daglan, Cultural Services Manager at Craven District Council, said: “Our team have been working hard to welcome visitors back safely and are looking forward to opening up the centre again.

“We would ask that only one person, couple or family should be in the information centre at any one time. Please read the signage on arrival and follow the instructions. We are encouraging contactless payments where possible.

“We’re glad to be back providing a service for all those who want to know what’s happening in the Craven District, along with a great range of maps, books, souvenirs and gifts.”
