Awards celebrate the best of Wirral's Tourism

25th April 2013

Categories: News

Caffe Cream winner of two Tourism Awards

The leading lights of Wirral’s ever-expanding tourism industry came together on Thursday 17th April for their annual celebration of achievements within the sector.

More than 250 tourism professionals gathered at New Brighton’s Floral Pavilion Theatre and Conference Centre for the prestigious Wirral Tourism Awards.

Now in its 12th year, the Tourism Awards reflect the very best of Wirral’s tourism sector, recognising the quality, achievements and continuous hard work of the individuals behind the success.

Kevin Reid, Chair of the Wirral Tourism Business Network (WTBN), and Director of Ness Gardens said: “I’d like to congratulate all of the fantastic tourism businesses and their dedicated staff who have been nominated for this year’s Wirral Tourism Awards. The quality and number of nominations received shows the strength and depth of Wirral’s tourism offer.

“Tourism businesses and their staff can be a great influence on public opinion and I am confident that visitors to Wirral are gaining the very best impression of the Borough. Each award category has been keenly contested and the winners can be rightly proud of their awards.”

Councillor Phil Davies, Leader of Wirral Council, added: “What has been particularly refreshing from this year’s awards has been the number of new faces, representing new businesses across the borough, sitting side by side with the more established names.

“Tourism in Wirral grew faster than any other in the city region last year. Indeed, since the WTBN was established in association with the Council, tourism has grown by 13% and is now worth over £285million to the Wirral’s economy. Our position as an attractive destination for visitors will of course be strengthened even further next year when we welcome the return of The Open Championship.”

Big winners on the night included Caffe Cream in New Brighton scooped two awards; the Family Friendly Business award and the award for Outstanding Customer Care, which was presented to Linda Crighton. Inglewood Manor in Ledsham took the prestigious Accommodation of the Year accolade and Adam Bowers of Portrait House in Hoylake won Wirral Young Chef of the Year.
