CHESTERFIELD’S Visitor Information Centre has scooped a top tourism award.
It won bronze in the ‘Visitor Information Provider of the Year’ category at the prestigious VisitEngland Awards for Excellence 2012.
Staff were presented with the plaudit at a glittering ceremony in Leicester.
Coun Ken Huckle, Chesterfield Council’s assistant executive member for leisure, culture and tourism, said: “We were thrilled to achieve a bronze award.
“It had extensive refurbishment work done just a few months ago and staff have worked hard through the changes, so it’s a great testament to them in achieving this award.”
Assessors said staff ‘gave an efficient and knowledgeable service with a caring attitude and demonstrated very good local knowledge’.
