On February 28th 2011 we were awarded with the Meetings and Incentive Travel Industry Silver Award for Access Excellence, presented to us at a Gala event in London. This is in recognition of our achievements in going well beyond the statutory requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act. Judges commented that the Centre is a very special place, which excels in its provision for all visitors.

In late 2009 our 5th birthday year we successfully achieved 3 international standards; ISO14001 and the Investors in People and Leadership and Management awards.
