2023 Stratford Business & Tourism Awards: Finalist, Family Business of the Year

Having been shortlisted as finalists in previous years, we were delighted to again be shortlisted for the 2023 Awards, in the Family Business of the Year category.

Unfortunately, we didn’t scoop the top prize, but we had a great night at the Awards Ceremony in October 2023 and were delighted to cheer on so many other fantastic local businesses.

2023 Family Business Awards: Finalist, Digital Excellence

We spent our locked-down time in 2020 wisely, and invested in new digital processes for our business. These included a new, easy-to-use booking system to improve our customers’ experiences, and digital transport management software to streamline our minibus operation.

Thanks to these developments, and our strong social media presence, Go Cotswolds was a finalist in the Digital Excellence category of the 2023 Family Business Awards.

2023 SME National Business Awards: Finalist, Family Business Award

Results of the 2023 SME National Business Awards will be announced in December 2023.
