Quorum Mini Beast Hotel Open for Guests

We’ve installed three new bug hotels in partnership with the Northumberland Wildlife Trust 

At Quorum Business Park we want to create a pleasant and sustainable environment where people, animals and business can thrive! 

To achieve this aim we make sure sustainability and the environment are given a central role. 

With the help of some onsite volunteers and a team from Northumberland Wildlife Trust we were able to put together three hotels.

Mini beast hotels (also know as wildlife stacks) are made from durable materials that are put together to create a number of small, secure and sheltered spaces where small creatures can make their home.  Read more… “Quorum Mini Beast Hotel Open for Guests”

Shuttle Bus Fare Changes from Mon 3 April

The 60p single Q Card fare will no longer be available on the Quorum Shuttle Bus and therefore anyone travelling as a single or return journey will pay:

  • £1.10 Single
  • £1.90 Return

 Q Card Saver Ticket:

Regular users will instead be able to get an even greater Q Card discount than the current offer by purchasing a weekly or monthly ticket:

  • £5.50 weekly ticket – buy driver, online and M-ticket 
  • £20 28 day ticket – buy online or via the M-ticket app

****Please note, there appears to be an issue buying the monthly saver online- we’re working with Arriva to get this fixed but in the interim you can buy directly from Amy Walker by telephone on 0191 520 4231 or by e-mail at walkera@arriva.co.uk.****

(valid on the 555 and 52 buses between Quorum and Four Lane Ends)

Passengers must show their Q Card when presenting their Q Card Saver Ticket to the Driver.

Valid Arriva, Network One and NE Smartzone Tickets will still be accepted as payment for the bus.

Ducks Spotted back onsite!

Spring must truly have sprung as the Quorum Ducks are back around the centre of the park! 

We’ve had a family of ducks visit us around Springtime every year since the park has been open, the ducks are regularly seen enjoying the sunshine between the Q8-Q15 Buildings in the centre of the park. 

They are very comfortable around passers by and you don’t need to avoid them but we do ask that you take care when driving out of the car parks as there has been a duck hit by a car in the past. 

There have been ducklings sighted in the past too – please take care when leaving the park and be patient if they are crossing the road.  Read more… “Ducks Spotted back onsite!”
