The organisers of Eat: Weston-super-Mare are flying high after scooping two ‘phenomenal’ awards in as many weeks.
Sarah and Beverley Milner Simonds were awarded best event organisers of the year by the National Outdoor Event Association (NOEA) for their Eat: Festivals.
NOEA is the UK’s leading outdoor events trade association and the pair were up against some stiff competition for the title.
Beverley told the Mercury: “To be recognised by peers is a phenomenal result and we were delighted to have made the shortlist.
“We pour a lot of love, care and time into creating festivals which work for our visitors, producers and our host towns.”
Sarah added: “To have won is testament to the hard work of the team and the support of our partners and sponsors.”
The team were also awarded a gold award at the Bristol, Bath and Somerset Tourism Awards as the event of the year.
