Championing Urmston for The Local Community

Featured member - Catherine Mackey

We’re so pleased to have Catherine as our first featured member. She’s an active member of the Partnership and also regularly cheers on other local businesses. Take it away Catherine!


I’m Catherine Mackey and I am a Travel Counsellor, a caring travel expert offering individual advice and a personal service to my clients.


As I work from my home office rather than a retail outlet, I initially joined Urmston Partnership 3 years ago to enable me to get to know other local businesses, raise awareness of my own business, and become more involved in the Urmston community. Over that time as well as doing that I have made many friends amongst my fellow business owners and enjoy meeting everyone at the Partnership meetings, getting together at the breakfast networking group and watering my barrier baskets on the railings for Urmston in Bloom!


As a Travel Counsellor, I’m passionate about creating travel experiences that my clients remember forever. I specialise in tailormade itineraries to anywhere in the world, from an extra special mini-break with every detail included, through to multi-centre adventures in faraway destinations, in sunshine or snow, on land or by sea. I also act as an agent for hundreds of main-stream and specialist tour operators and cruise lines.


My areas of expertise include:


  • Adventure & Touring – private, small group, special interest
  • Cruise – as a CLIA Cruise Master I’m an ambassador for the cruise industry
  • Luxury escapes – private villas and dream destinations
  • Group Travel – eg. schools, sports & social groups, large family groups/weddings
  • Accessible Travel – making it possible for my clients with access requirements to travel the world without limitations
  • Business Travel, Corporate Incentive Trips and Events


Every travel experience I create is covered by Travel Counsellors Financial Trust, which includes full ATOL protection, protecting every single penny of your money.

Do get in touch to arrange a convenient time for a phone or coffee shop consultation at a time to suit you. Then all you need to do it sit back, let me do all the hard work and look forward to getting away from it all.


Here’s to a 2020 filled with exciting adventures!
