Bids invited for Thistle Awards

NOMINATIONS are being sought from tourism and hospitality businesses in the region for the South of Scotland’s regional Thistle Awards

Members of the public are being urged to show their support and appreciation for a hotel, restaurant, visitor attraction or event whose quality and excellence makes them a prime contender for an award.

Entries must be submitted by the closing date of April 28 with the regional shortlist due to be announced in July and the awards ceremony planned for October.

David Hope-Jones OBE, chief executive of the South of Scotland Destination Alliance (SSDA), said: “Last year’s inaugural South of Scotland Thistle awards were a brilliant success, and it was wonderful to see so many quality businesses from the South of Scotland being recognised by their industry peers in the region and throughout Scotland.

“If you know a tourism or hospitality business in your local community that deserves to be celebrated for excellence and innovation, then this is the time. Get your nomination in and show them your support!”
