Web extra – Quaker Tapestry wins award
The Quaker Tapestry in Kendal has been named 'Small Visitor Attraction of the Year 2008' at the Northwest Tourism Awards.
Described as an 'exceptional attraction', the judges were impressed with the way the Quaker Tapestry tells its distinctive story in a wide range of ways. Sheila Williams, administrator at the Quaker Tapestry, described winning the award as 'brilliant' and showed the potential for national recognition. In November they will be visited by a mystery shopper and assessed for a national tourism award next April. Helen Batte from the North West Development Agency has mentioned previous success at the Enjoy England awards for entries from the northwest and is 'cautiously optimistic' for the Quaker Tapestry to win at the national level.
