Brockholes wins awards

It’s been an eventful 18 months at Brockholes with public and business visitor numbers increasing. Brockholes has welcomed hundreds of thousands of visitors, from delegates to day trippers and feathered friends to creepy crawlies.

The popular award-winning destination is benefiting from work on the wider reserve, with record breaking wading bird numbers and an increase in the number of breeding lapwing, ring plover and redshank, to name a few.

Brockholes has now won more than 20 awards and has many more nominations in the pipeline. A regional TV campaign on ITV Granada sparked an increase in visitors over the summer.

There’s more good news, too, as Brockholes has now been granted a ceremony licence to enhance its already popular wedding reception offer. Dates are already booking up fast and there are no signs of a rest for the Brockholes team any time soon.

And booking are now being taken for Christmas lunches for businesses and the general public.

Brockholes’ reputation for corporate events is growing. Recently, Lancashire County Council visited Brockholes for a full day conference and topped it off with a team-building scavenger hunt.

Event organiser Janet Zaldats said: “Brockholes was a super location to bring together our four area offices in a bright and spacious, self-contained meeting venue.,It had flexibility for group work and a definite out of office feel to the fun team building exercise, which got people outside and mixing.” www.brockholes.org
