Biggest Number Of Scilly Businesses Entered In Cornwall Tourism Awards

hugh town centre buntingNine Scilly businesses have entered this year’s Cornwall Tourism Awards and organisers say that’s the biggest response from the islands so far.

Robin Baker, who arranges the event, says locals have applied in the Small Hotel, B&B, Tourism Experience, Café, Pub, Attraction and Customer Service categories.

There have been 120 entries in the Cornish categories, which include Scilly, and the winners will be announced in the autumn.

Robin says he hopes some more locals may apply for a newly introduced category, the Wildlife Friendly Business award. He believes that is suited to many island businesses.

That class, and the Tourism Event category, remain open for entries until August 30th.

The Southwest winners will go on to represent the region at the Visit England awards and success in the regional awards could bring national publicity.

The Islands’ Partnership has offered to help potential applicants submit entries.
