12th Feb ’15 saw 98 trophies handed out to the elite of the regions tourist industry (which LBRC is proud, and perhaps a little surprised, to be included in!) at the Grand Pier Weston Super Mare.

The event was hosted by ITV new anchor Kylie Pentelow, with an inspiring and amusing speech from SW based travel writer, presenter, marine biologist and seemingly all round good egg Monty Halls…

Michael Eavis, organiser of the legendary Glastonbury Festival was also present for the evening and was himself recognised and awarded and Outstanding Contribution award for his many years of service and drawing literally millions of people to the region over the years…Michael Eavis SWTAwards

As a result of reaching the finals of the regional round LBRC has also been selected to enter the national Visit England Awards scheduled for later this year, which if chosen as a finalist will be an AWESOME accolade in itself… we’ll be sure to keep you posted!
