Steve is a retiree and has a lot of connections in the town and also does ‘ghost tours’. Hannah, who is also local, is studying Spanish and French at the University of Leicester.

They are easy to spot in their bright orange tops and always happy to help. You will see them around the town until early to mid September.

Liz Healey, visitor information centre and box office manager, said: “We are delighted to be working with the four Town Ambassadors again this year. They are getting out and about meeting all the businesses and attractions and are also on hand with a friendly welcome to answer questions about Warwick to visitors and locals.

“They are promoting forthcoming events and will also get involved with local campaigns over the course of the summer. If you would like them to assist at your event in Warwick please contact the visitor information centre."
