Have your say

IT’S an opportunity to shout from the rooftops about the great and good and last night at Welcome to Yorkshire’s White Rose Awards in Harrogate they did just that.

The annual awards event, which is the largest celebration of tourism in the country, attracted more than a thousand people as businesses from across the county went head in 17 different categories – ranging from the best Yorkshire pub and holiday park to tourism event of the year.

Guests at the event were treated to special musical performances from James Bond and Annie, as well as appearances from Yorkshire’s Olympic and Paralympic heroes and stars from the world of stage and TV.

Tourism in Yorkshire is worth a staggering £7bn each year and awards ceremonies like these are a reminder not only of what a truly breathtaking county we live in, but also the great wealth of talent that exists here.
