South West Tourism Excellence Awards 2019/2020
We had an amazing evening at the South West Tourism Excellence Awards at Exeter Cathedral. We were so proud to have been selected as one of the finalists in the ‘New Business Category.’ The Discovery Centre was one of a record 773 entries from the region, including Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Bath, Bristol, Somerset, Dorset, Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. To our delight and amazement, we won the silver award! A great achievement for all those who have been involved in helping us achieve such an accolade in just 19 months since we opened!
The awards were presented at a special event in Exeter Cathedral attended by over 400 invited guests. They were the result of visits and assessments by an independent judging panel, which made the final decisions.
The judges described the Centre as “Communicating in a very imaginative & personal way”. The full list of winners can be found here. Congratulations to all the winners, it was great to have some neighbouring businesses representing our part of Dorset. See the other winners here.
