Howletts and Port Lympne Wild Animal Parks were judged Best Leisure and Tourism Business in Kent by KEiBA officials at a glittering awards ceremony held at Gillingham Football Club on Thursday 28th June.
The KEiBA awards, now in their fourth year, were staged and produced by Kent County Council and The KM Group to celebrate the cream of Kent enterprise. Thirteen businesses and individuals were selected as category winners after a tough judging process whittled down hundreds of entries to just 40 finalists.
Managing Director of Howletts and Port Lympne, Bob O’Connor said: ‘I am absolutely delighted that Howletts and Port Lympne Wild Animal Parks have been awarded Best Leisure and Tourism Business in Kent by KEiBA, it’s a testament to all of our hard working staff who endeavour to make the parks a wonderful day out for visitors.’
