The Tank Museum will host its third wellness event on 5 October 2023, to shine…
Who said working with children and animals isn’t easy? It is an absolute pleasure if you love what you do!
Family favourite Farmer Palmers were proudly flying the flag for Dorset. Imagine the sheer elation after scooping the South West Tourism Excellence Awards Regional Gold Award for Large Visitor Attraction of the Year at the Eden Project! They were sponsored by the world-famous Jo Downs handmade glass artist, and the trophy is stunning.
There are reports this morning, that the animals and some of the excitable team can be heard mooing their joy from the barn rooftops, down on the family run farm. They are so excited for the future and really feel part of the community of excellence, standing proud for diversified farmers everywhere.
Sandra Palmer-Snellin, Director said, “This belongs to the team, their exceptional, top quality ‘’nothing is too much trouble” attitude deserves this recognition. This award follows on from the success of winning Winner of Winners, at the Dorset Tourism Awards last year, which gave us entry to the South West Tourism Excellence Awards.
We believe customers deserve excellent, quality service, and a warm welcome. It is lovely to see all the hard work, ongoing investments, and attention to detail were recognised by the judges who secretly shopped our experience. We always listen to feedback from our customers, so we are grateful for the opportunity for feedback from the judges. Knowing that Farmer Palmers is heading to the National Awards is mind-blowing! Success is golden and we are looking forward to the sunshine ahead.”
This year, Dorset’s Farmer Palmer’s Farm Park, is celebrating 25 years in business. Generations of children have grown up there, learning in the fun countryside environment. You can really feel that the customers and the team are one big family. Evidence of their united culture, traditional values, and focus on delivering variety and top customer service to families is part of the magic of this diversified family farm.
Now, more than ever, play is a crucial full-body exercise that develops critical thinking skills. Children are like sponges, soaking up everything as they learn new things. At Farmer Palmer’s they can be curious, investigate, explore, run, bounce, climb, communicate, as well as, develop imagination and creativity. Add giggles of laughter to the mix and the magic is made!
Farmer Palmers were among a strong Dorset representation at the awards and had a fantastic night. Congratulations to Lappa Valley, Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm and WWT Slimbridge Wetland Centre who were in the Large Visitor Attraction category.
It just goes to show that by nurturing the seeds of teamwork and quality, you can harvest success that benefits everyone.
