Anne-Marie Trevelyan, MP for Berwick-upon-Tweed, was delighted to visit Northumberland College’s Berwick campus on Friday. She was met by the new team which runs the recently merged Sunderland and Northumberland Colleges, the CEO Eilen Thinnesen of Sunderland, Northumberland and Hartlepool Colleges and Nigel Harrett, Principal at Northumberland College. 

Anne-Marie was able to visit one of the courses and chat to the students.  She had a full briefing on how the merger of the colleges had progressed and then discussed in detail the plans for the new college at Berwick.

Anne-Marie said “I was delighted to have the opportunity to chat to the students and see the plans for the new campus building that will be developed in Berwick.  This is a fantastic opportunity for our area and my thanks go to all those who have made this a success”.
