NFU Mutual Wessex is delighted to have been able to support the Dorset Tourism Awards 2021/22.

In their ninth year, the awards recognise pubs, cafes, restaurants, activities and accommodation in the Dorset area.

The chair of the judges, Professor Peter Jones, said: “Over the past two years the tourism industry has experienced the very lows of lockdown and the highs of the demands for staycations, all in the same year. As this year's winners have shown, they are working exceptionally hard to overcome any setbacks and to showcase the excellence that Dorset tourism offers all of its visitors.”

Simon Hedges, Partner, NFU Mutual Wessex said, “We are delighted to support these awards which honour Dorset’s resilient, creative and innovative tourism businesses. As sponsor of the Glamping category it is fantastic to see the industry continue to grow and develop despite the difficulties of the last two years.”
