STAFF at West Midland Safari Park are celebrating after winning two national awards, recognising their service to group travel.

The first award was scooped at the British Coach Awards where the Park saw off competition from many national attractions, to win best 'Coach Friendly Visitor Attraction'.

This was awarded to the Bewdley attraction for demonstrating their commitment to welcoming and developing relationships with coaches, their drivers and coach groups.

For the third year in a row, West Midland Safari Park scooped 'Best Animal or Sea Life Attraction for Groups' from the Group Travel Awards.

The national award is highly coveted as it is voted for by visitors and recognises the best suppliers to the group travel industry.

Sue Day, guest relations officer, said: "We are thrilled to have accepted both awards this year on behalf of West Midland Safari and Leisure Park.

"It is our third consecutive year receiving the Group Travel Award for 'Best Animal or Sea Life Attraction for Groups' and we are delighted that the Park continues to be recognised for its valued relationships with both the coach and group industry."

West Midland Safari Park has seen a growth in investment over the last few years, with new exhibits including the Land of the Living Dinosaurs in 2015, education facility Safari Academy and a new children's play area - set to open this summer.
