White Rose shortlist for winter theme park

Have your say

Stockeld Park has been shortlisted in the prestigious White Rose Awards.

It could be third time lucky for the Wetherby winter theme park which has been shortlisted for the last three years and this time they’re hoping for success in the best tourism event and customer service award categories.

Susie Grant, who owns Stockeld Park with husband Peter, said: “We’re truly thrilled to have been shortlisted again in the White Rose Awards this year, particularly alongside some really fantastic businesses.

“The last 12 months have been a period of development and expansion of the attraction at Stockeld Park so we’ve got our fingers crossed for success in recognition of the improvements.

“Being shortlisted in the customer service category is particularly rewarding for our hard working team.”

Gary Verity, Chief Executive of awards organisers Welcome to Yorkshire, said: “Competition this year was so fierce that every business making it to the shortlist should consider it a huge achievement in itself as they have had to contend with some real quality competition.”

Winners will be announced in November.
