A popular attraction has unveiled plans to get its visitor numbers soaring.
The Grampian Transport Museum, based in Alford, is hoping to exceed 30,000 visitors in 2017.
If that target is reached, it will be the busiest year in a decade for the popular tourist attraction.
Taking on the challenge of meeting those numbers is the museum’s new marketing boss – who is aged 17.
Oliver Edwards beat all other candidates, and is now believed to be the UK’s youngest marketing manager.
Oliver previously worked on marketing projects in his native Yorkshire and further south in Cornwall.
When he was 13 he managed special events on the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, the line made famous in The Railway Children film, before moving on to the Bodmin and Wenford Railway in Cornwall to control marketing operations in early 2016.
The museum has a number of events coming up in 2017, which it is hoped will draw the crowds.
Cycling to the Bicentenary is a celebration of 200 years of bicycles, and the museum will continue its successful Guy Martin displays, featuring championship motorbikes and custom vehicles.
Oliver said: “It’s an honour to take over marketing at the Grampian Transport Museum.
“With high visitor numbers, a great team and good working ethos, I’m sure we’ll continue to thrive.”
Grampian Transport Museum opens for the new season on Mother’s Day this Sunday.
