The theme park near Lichfield finished first in the large company category of The Sun’s Best of British Awards, which aim to recognise businesses which treat staff well.

Managing director William Bryan said the accolade was a pleasing one to pick-up.

“It’s fantastic news that we’ve come first in the large company category,” he said. “As a family owned and run business it means such a lot for us to be recognised in this way.

“Our employees work incredibly hard every year to ensure that all of our visitors have an enjoyable experience. We wouldn’t be where we are today without the team’s dedication and enthusiasm and it is great to have this award recognise our achievements.”
