Tourism AwardsMonday 13th October 2014
It was a mild Thursday evening in October and the captain and mermaids were happy to get the old glad rags out ready for a glamorous event at the Wolfcastle Hotel. We were greeted by the Pembrokeshire Tourism team and a beautiful glitzy setting. As finalists in the 'Sustainability' category at the Pembrokeshire Tourism Awards we scooped silver for our environmentally friendly procedures and litter picking incentives at Freshwater West this summer. The evening was a lovely one, we met lots of local business we hadn't yet crossed paths with such as 'Wickedly Welsh Chocolate' who deservedly took gold for most exciting new business. The entertainment was great and the Wolfcastle Hotel provided some really fabulous food. Not bad for an Autumn week night at all!
It goes without saying that we will continue to hand out free tea and coffee in exchange for litter off the beach next season and as ever we shall endeavour to use local sustainable food because we have a strong sustainability ethos (and we want to go back to the awards next year!).
