Celebrating the best of the best in our annual tourism awards

Each year we recognise the contributions of our tourism businesses with the Enjoy Staffordshire Tourism Awards and this year was no different.

This year’s ceremony took place on Thursday at the brand new £8m Aspects Conference Centre at the National Memorial Arboretum and was hosted by Joanne Malin, who you may know from BBC Midlands Today.

More than 40 attractions, activities, and accommodation businesses entered, and I would like to say a huge well done to everyone, including a special congratulations to the winners.  Amongst them were Drayton Manor Park, who picked up 2 awards, Middleport Pottery, The Dorothy Clive Garden, Swinfen Hall Hotel and the NMA themselves.  Also, and on my patch, well done to Heywood Hall and Lower Micklin Touring Park both in Denstone who also picked up awards.

Tourism is a really important sector for the county and our local tourism businesses continue to do us proud and a great job, bringing in almost £2bn each year and sustaining tens of thousands of jobs.  So once again, thank you and well done.
