On Thursday 7 November, the world-famous Pleasure Beach Arena, Blackpool was the ‘coolest’ venue for Marketing Lancashire’s annual Lancashire Tourism Awards, and we were very excited to be there as one of the shortlisted finalists in the category – Small Visitor Attraction of the Year.
Although it wasn’t to be this year, we were still incredibly proud to be representing our family farm on the evening, and it’s thanks to the continued hard work, support, creativity and loyalty of our team that we were even shortlisted.
Huge congratulations must go to Carnforth Station Heritage Centre who were the eventual winners in our category.
Rachel McQueen, Chief Executive of Marketing Lancashire in her opening speech said,
“There are many reasons why almost 69 million visitors a year choose to come to Lancashire – for our events, attractions, hotels, pubs, restaurants, our stunning coastline, beautiful countryside, heritage, culture and lots more. Lancashire’s amazing tourism businesses and the people who run them. The Lancashire Tourism Awards is about recognising the quality and talent that we have in our tourism industry.
We must also acknowledge the levels of investment businesses are making; investment that enables us to constantly raise our game and gives Lancashire standout against the competition.”
