Northumberland Tourism remember David Hunter

David's death was a great shock. David was involved with Northumberland Tourism for a long time. He was involved in the management of flagship hotels and pushed the bar of those hotels. Doxford Hall was one of the leading hotels and [David] provided a great service. So there is disappointment he is not here to take things forward.

– Jude Leitch, Tourism Development Manager, Northumberland Tourism
