Local visitor information centres nominated for national tourism award

John Freeman

Morecambe and Lancaster Visitor Information Centres (VICs) have been nominated for a prestigious national tourism award in the Visit England Awards for Excellence 2015.

Having been the highest performing VICs shortlisted in the Customer Service Award category of the recent Lancashire Tourism awards, judges decided to nominate the centres to represent Lancashire in the Visitor Information Provider category of the national Visit England awards, which showcase the very best England has to offer.

Councillor Ron Sands, Cabinet member with responsibility for tourism and leisure, said:  “This nomination to represent Lancashire in such a prestigious national competition, is testament to the hard work and dedication of our VIC staff and recognises the city council’s commitment to tourism, which remains a vitally important industry to our area.”

Morecambe and Lancaster VICs are run by Lancaster City Council, in partnership with Lancashire County Council and based in the Platform buildings in Morecambe and the Storey building in Lancaster.
