09 November 2017
Tiverton’s Tourist Information Service, housed in Tiverton’s Museum of Mid Devon Life, is thrilled to have been chosen as a finalist in the Visitor Information Service of the Year category of the 2017 Devon Tourism Awards.
This year saw a record of 205 entries and an increase to 25 categories in the competition which is now in its 8th year following its launch in 2010.
Visitor Information Officers Carrie Thomas and Liz Brooks and the large team of front desk volunteers at the museum will be eagerly awaiting the prestigious Awards Ceremony on 23rd November to find out if they have won bronze, silver or gold. The event is taking place in Plymouth Guildhall and will be hosted by Britain's leading travel commentator, Simon Calder.
Awards organizer Robin Barker of Services for Tourism commented: “This year’s Devon Tourism Awards have broken all records with 205 entries and our judges carrying out 120 business visits, most of them mystery visits. The competition has been tough and the standard outstanding. With tourism increasingly recognised as one of the UK’s and Devon’s most important industries, it is great to see so many exemplars of excellence across the county.”
