Clacton Pier tastes success at Blue Ribbon Awards
October 9, 2017
Clacton Pier enjoyed the sweet
taste of success at the Tendring Blue Ribbon Awards 2017.
The company picked up the
prestigious accolade in the Hospitality and Leisure category having entered the
event for the first time this year.
The Pier was also nominated for the
overall Judges Award but lost out to Sta-Lok from Mistley which claimed top
spot on the night staged at Clacton’s Princes Theatre.
Two members of staff – Ewelina
Majewska and Sharon Charters – made the final four in the Employee of the Year
Award which eventually went to Colin Taylor at Funland in St Osyth.
Pier Director Billy Ball said that
it was a fantastic evening and all those involved had a great time.
“The Pier prides itself in being
very much part of the local community and this was a night for celebration for
Tendring’s business community,” he added.
“We were incredibly proud to pick
up an award and to have three nominations in two others. It is important that
businesses get together and support each other in any way they can.
“I would like to thank the
organisers of the Tendring Blue Ribbon Awards for all their hard work and look
forward to next year.”
Mr Ball said it had been an
extremely busy year for the Pier and it was very satisfying to cap it off with
a top award.
“We are one big team and this
honour reflects on the achievements of everybody on the staff.
“Now we are all concentrating on
what is going to be an even busier 12 months for the Pier as we embark on a
major programme of works.”
