Gold for Discovery Centre at South West Awards

West Bay Discovery Centre collected a gold award at the prestigious South West Tourism Excellence Awards 2021/22 Finals in Exeter. The Centre won gold in Ethical, Responsible & Sustainable Business category beating off competition four other finalists.

Discovery Centre Trustee John West said “we are absolutely delighted with this achievement. To achieve a gold in competition with other top businesses and visitor attractions from the South West’s six counties and Bristol and Bath is a great accolade for all the team at the Centre.

“Care for the environment and promoting sustainability has and will always be central to what we do, so this award means a lot to us. We aim to have a low impact on the environment by buying sustainable and locally produced merchandise, recycling our waste, and promoting local beach cleans. We are also a “Bridport Plastic-free business champion.”

He added “Showing that we care for West Bay, the place that we are located and live is very important to us. There were a number of Dorset winners and we delighted that Highlands End Holiday Park deservedly collected gold in the Holiday Park of the Year category.”

The Discovery Centre run by a local charity is open six days a week Tuesday-Sunday and new volunteers are always welcome to join this award-winning team.
