A COACH firm which operates in the Portsmouth area has been given a national tourism award.

Woods Travel, based in Bognor Regis, won the award for Coach Holiday Programme of the Year in the Coach Tourism Awards.

The category recognises the programme that demonstrates innovation and creativity together with a good mix of destinations.

The judges commented on the fact that 50 new tours had been added into the current programme, including a good mix of destinations linked to the forthcoming anniversary of the First World War.

The focus on the different products, including two-centre tours and a singles programme also caught the judges’ eye.

Collecting the award, director Kristy Elsmere said: ‘Winning the award for holiday programme and being a finalist for excursion programme is down to the hard work of all our staff.’
