Businesses from across the region were honoured in nine award categories in front of an audience of more than 500 guests watching the glittering ceremony, hosted by actress and impressionist Debra Stephenson, at the Poole Lighthouse.

 

Organised by Dorset Chamber of Commerce and Industry and also supported by Wave 105 and the Dorset Echo, the Dorset Business Awards have become the largest of its type in the county, and the awards ceremony is a major feature on the county’s annual business calendar.

 

Dorset Tourism Award – sponsored by Dorset Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Liz Lean PR

Shortlisted:

Christchurch Harbour Hotel & Spa, Christchurch

Hoburne Holiday Parks, Highcliffe

Monkey World Ape Rescue Centre, Wareham

Winner: Monkey World Ape Rescue Centre

Judges’ comment: To use the much-overused word, Monkey World Ape Rescue Centre really is unique and in the 20-plus years of its existence has grown to almost occupy all 65 acres of its site. With an affordable ticket price, and open 364 days-a-year, visitors are supported by a highly-knowledgeable, patient and caring team of guides.

Offering an enjoyable and educational experience for all ages, and from individuals to families to school groups, visitors have access to seeing first-hand and understanding some of the world’s most endangered and persecuted species of primates. Comprehensive foreign-language materials and a welcoming cafeteria and gift shop, round-off an experience which encourages return visitors, many of whom become long-term supporters of Monkey World.
