Woods Travel of Bognor Regis scooped top prizes in the Arun Business Partnership Awards held recently on the south coast. The Elsmere family who own and run Woods, picked up three key awards; Customer Care, Business of the Year (over 10 employees) and Overall Business of the year.

Tina Shaw-Morton, a Director at Woods Travel was ecstatic about the fact the company had triumphed. She dedicated its success to the overall hard work of the Woods team. She said: “I am speechless; I didn’t expect us to win business of the year. It has been a good year for us as a company, which is shown by the number of customers we have had – many of whom are doing repeat business with us, which is fantastic. To have won the customer care award was really pleasing, as that’s the main reason we are still here and are continuing to grow.”

Fellow Director Kristy Elsmere said she was “incredibly proud” to have won three awards in a particularly tough year in the tourism industry. She added: “They are a testament to the continued commitment of our staff to be the best at what they do. The Overall Business of the Year Award was the icing on the cake, as the winner is chosen from all of the nominees, not just the category winners.”
