Awards for the crème de la crème of Wirral tourism

WIRRAL'S tourism heroes were celebrated at the sector's annual awards ceremony that took place on Thursday, 14 April 2016. More than 200 tourism professionals, including those from the Wirral Visitor Economy Network (WVEN), gathered at New Brighton's Floral Pavilion Theatre and Conference Centre for the prestigious Wirral Tourism Awards. The Awards reflect the very best of Wirral's tourism sector, recognising the quality, achievements and continuous hard work of the individuals and teams behind the success.

Mayor of Wirral, Cllr Les Rowlands, was guest of honour at the ceremony and said:- "I'd like to congratulate all of the businesses and staff, from over 450 nominations this year, who were finalists for the awards. Just being nominated shows how highly valued they are by their customers. The Wirral Tourism Awards once again reinforced the great work businesses in this sector do on behalf of the borough and the positive impression they make on local people and visitors alike."

Big winners on the night included Shore Cottage Studio on Thurstaston beach and a number of New Brighton businesses. Indeed, the Outstanding Contribution to Wirral Tourism award was given to Promenade Estates (Wirral), who were formerly known as Neptune Developments, who played a major role in the regeneration of New Brighton over the last 10 years.
