Time for Tennis!

Summer is well and truly on its way when the Quorum Sports Club brings back Tennis Season! 

From Friday 21st April you will now be able to play tennis on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Monday – Thursday will still be football. 

Q Card holders can book tennis sessions online here. 

Can’t do the weekend? If you are interested in playing tennis on another evening and there are no football bookings in that evening we might be able to accommodate you – email hub@quorumbp.co.uk for more info. 

Quorum has three tennis nets so you can choose the number of nets you wish to book (we do ask you only book more than one net if you actually need more than one net). 

Email hub@quorumbp.co.uk for more on lunchtime tennis coaching sessions coming this July.

Quorum spread some Easter Joy

Over 300 Easter Eggs were collected on behalf of The Great North Children’s Hospital in the run up to Easter. 

Donations flooded in from tenants across the park and were boxed up and delivered on Wednesday 12th April in time to be shared over the hospital’s 14 ward and outpatient clinics in time for Easter.

Jenny Palmer, Matron at the Great North Hospital was over the moon with the collection. ‘We’re thrilled with the donations, its great to see so many people giving just a little something to those in our care, we really appreciate the kind gesture. When I saw how many eggs were collected, I was blown away. We’re absolutely delighted, and look forward to sharing with the children.’  Read more… “Quorum spread some Easter Joy”

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

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

(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.

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!”
