Beautiful South Awards - finalists for the Access and Inclusivity Award

Over the last few months a team of independent expert judges have been deliberating on entries for the Beautiful South Awards and the finalists have been announced.

We are delighted to announce that The Watercress Line is one of the finalists in the Access and Inclusivity Award category. The Mid Hants Railway demonstrated exceptional customer service to all, particularly those with impairments and other access needs.

Competition was as fierce with a record 179 entries in 20 categories. Finalists will discover whether they have won Gold, Silver or Bronze at an Awards Celebration Event on Thursday 24th of November 2016 at the Hilton at the Ageas Bowl near Southampton.

Nigel Smith, Chief Executive of Tourism South East, said, “Every year is a reminder of the fantastic range and quality of tourism businesses the South East has to offer. Many who have entered are world class and a match for any in the UK. I want to thank all those that entered and the judges who again had the unenviable task of deciding who deserves to be recognised as the best of the best.”
