September 23, 2011 Leave a comment
The annual Lancashire & Blackpool Tourism Awards 2011/12 took place on the evening of 22 September at the glittering Paradise Room at Blackpool Pleasure Beach where the best tourism and hospitality businesses contended for 16 categories. Blackpool born Jody Prenger, star of BBC 1’s “I’d do Anything” and Cameron Mackintosh’s revival production of “Oliver!” was the host for the spectacular occasion. Wyre’s businesses and Wyre Tourism Association members shone during the event which saw wins for Caravan Holiday Park of the Year (Sunset Park) and Small Visitor Attraction of the Year (Old Holly Farm). I was so very proud of the Wyre winners and shortlisted Wyre finalists too!
I am especially proud of a project very close to my own heart – The Visit Garstang Centre which was shortlisted with 3 other very worthy contenders for the Visitor Information Provider Award. I’m very pleased to say that we WON and took home a beautiful glass engraved trophy and certificate I was so very proud of our achievement and my wonderful staff who made it all possible. Here’s to the National Awards which we will do our utmost to be shortlisted for which will take place in May 2012, possibly in London.
