Gullivers Win Tourism Award
Staff at Warrington theme park Gulliverâ€™s World came out on top at a Cheshire tourism awards ceremony this week.
Gulliverâ€™s staff were named â€śTeam of the Year 2010â€ť at the Visit Chester and Cheshire 2010 â€śCelebrating the Achievements of Talented Staffâ€ť Awards.
Ten employees from the theme park, which opened its doors for Christmas last weekend, attended the ceremony in Tatton Parkâ€™s Grand Marquee. They included an entertainer, gardener and seasonal workers.
Gulliverâ€™s training and development manager Dean Kimberley said: â€śThere are two special elements within our team – the core full-time staff, who provide the backbone to our business, and the seasonal staff, without whom we could not operate.
â€śSeasonal team members play a major role in the tourism industry yet theyâ€™re rarely celebrated for their achievements. The combined talents of our team, made up of everyone from students to retirees, have this year provided a remarkable platform to boost our company profile and that of Cheshire and the North West.”
Gulliverâ€™s Kingdom, Matlock Bath won the same award at the Visit Peak District and Derbyshire 2010 Excel Tourism Awards earlier this year.
Gulliverâ€™s World is open to Christmas visitors on selected dates throughout December â€“ festive guests can meet Santa in his grotto, become a certified elf at the special Elf School and enjoy Christmas rides, attractions and snow every day.
