TIC highly commended at SW Tourism Awards
The Tourist Information Centre team has been highly commended in the South West Tourism Excellence Awards.
The TIC, which won silver at the recent Cornwall Tourism Awards, was recognised in the Visitor Information Service category.
It is the only Scilly business mentioned in the shortlist for this year's South West awards.
This year saw a record 651 entries, while the team of 51 judges undertook a record 472 visits to entrants.
The Islands' Partnership said: "To be recognised with Highly Commended is a huge achievement, especially in England’s top tourism region, so huge congratulations to the TIC team."
Three Scilly businesses were successful at last year's awards. Hell Bay Hotel picked up the gold for Best Small/Boutique Hotel of the Year (for the second time in three years), Star Castle scooped bronze for Best Bistro/Restaurant of the Year and Scilly Seal Snorkelling won bronze in the Active & Sporting Experience category.
