Tourism stars seek to win national title
Two Westcountry tourism workers have reached the finals of a search to find the UK's tourism superstar.
Claire Preece, who works at Kents Cavern, in Torquay, and Colin Spargo, a volunteer at the National Maritime Museum, in Falmouth, have reached the final of the Tourism Superstar 2013 Award, run by VisitEngland.
The award seeks to recognise the dedication and passion of those working in the tourism industry and is awarded to an individual who goes above and beyond the call of duty.
"I just do what comes naturally to me. Customers are here to enjoy themselves and my approach is to give the level of service I expect to get from others," said Ms Preece.
