Key North Belfast organisations including St Malachy’s College, St Anne’s Cathedral, Belfast Charitable Society and Ashton Community Trust have linked up to take part in World Host Training this week at Clifton House. This training has been funded by the Barbour Fund. Although the Barbour Mill at Hilden has been closed for some time, the legacy of Barbour continues. They have recently joined forces the Belfast Charitable Society to fund training which enables participants to gain skills in hospitality and tour guiding.
Gerry McNamee, archivist of St Malachy’s College said, “Having completed this training I would highly recommend it. It is a great way to build up your confidence and skills in helping visitors to the area.” Paula Reynolds, CEO of the Belfast Charitable Society said, “We are delighted in partnership with the Barbour fund to offer this training. It is an excellent opportunity for North Belfast organisations to come together for shared learning.”
