The West Somerset Railway are celebrating this week after winning a prestigious award.
They attended the Bristol Bath & Somerset Awards and were awarded BRONZE in the Large Attraction of the year grouping.
The winners were judged by a panel of experts. Laura Rawlings from BBC Radio Bristol announced the winners, and was joined on stage by Marcus Trescothick MBE. The winners were all presented with individually crafted, hand inscribed awards by Will Shakspeare, from Shakspeare Glass in Langport.
This award reflects the hard work and dedication of the many volunteer and paid staff that work tirelessly to deliver a memorable day for all our passengers.
General Manager, Paul Conibeare said “becoming a finalist in the Bristol Bath and Somerset Awards is a wonderful achievement for the railway, so we are thrilled to accept the bronze award on behalf of the team at the West Somerset Railway. This award highlights the fantastic efforts made by every staff member and we are very proud of this achievement”
