Alan Campbell, MP for Tynemouth today met with local McDonald’s franchisee Bill Liddy and his team at the newly transformed Coast Road restaurant, to discuss his recent investment, contribution to the local community, and the high-tech makeover.
During his visit, Alan was given a tour of the restaurant, including the kitchens, and met staff who gave him insight into how the restaurant operates locally.
Alan was particularly interested to hear about the restaurants’ work in dealing with litter through the daily litter patrols and the partnership with anti-littering group Keep Britain Tidy. Just last week nine volunteers tackled the rubbish in and around the Garth Housing Estate, as part of the nationwide campaign – Clean for the Queen.
Alan Campbell MP, said: "I found my visit to McDonald's, on Coast Road, very valuable and I was really impressed with the new features. It’s positive to see how staff are valued and have a wide range of opportunities available. What's more the company cares about being part of the local community – events such as Clean for the Queen are a good example of this.”
