A finalist in Awards for Excellence
Hard on the heels of the gold award the West Bay Discovery Centre collected at South-west Tourism Excellence Awards 2021/22, the Centre has now been chosen to go forward to the Visit England national tourism award finals. The Centre stands to win gold, silver or bronze in Ethical, Responsible & Sustainable Business category in competition with three other finalists.
We are stunned by this further achievement as we thought our success at the South-West awards was the summit of our achievements but national recognition is beyond our expectations and a very pleasant surprise. Care for the environment and promoting sustainability is central to what we do. We aim to have a low impact on the environment by recycling our waste, buying sustainable and locally produced merchandise wherever possible and promoting local beach cleans. We have interactive displays showing how we can all reduce our carbon footprint and lessen the impact of climate change. We are also a “Bridport Plastic-free business champion”. The final will take place in Birmingham on the 8th June.
