Wensum Pools Ltd based in Fakenham, Norfolk are celebrating after collecting a top industry award at the prestigious British Pool & Hot Tub Awards, hosted by BISHTA and SPATA, held on Tuesday 30th January, at the Ricoh Arena, in Coventry. The British and Irish Spa and Hot Tub Association (BISHTA) and the Swimming Pool and Allied Trades Association (SPATA) are the relevant bodies upholding standards within the Wet Leisure Industry. Rebranded in 2015, the first SPATA awards were won in 1978, and the first BISHTA awards were won in 2008. These well-established awards are the UK’s number one wet leisure industry accolades.
The SPATA award was presented to Wensum Pools Ltd for the Peter Geekie Award for Retail Excellence sponsored by Certikin International in recognition for Syd, and Andrea Morrison’s showroom situated on one of the main roads of the Norfolk Coast. It is highly visible to the vast amounts of traffic that pass by. The site features eye-catching flags on the roadside and a swimspa and enclosure that are lit up so that site is highly visible from the roadside at all times. The show site has a bandstand and log cabin on a grass area, with the total site featuring a whole host of product displays including a performance Endless Pool with treadmill and Roldeck easy cover, a Hydropool swim spa in a log cabin and they also display over 20 hot tubs from Jacuzzi, Caldera Spas, Intex, Hydropool and Viking.
Andrea and Syd Morrison of Wensum Pools Ltd commented: “We are thrilled to be recognised at the British Pool & Hot Tub Awards. It is such good news for our dedicated team at Wensum Pools Ltd and a testament to the hard work we have put into the development of our show site. This is a wonderful acknowledgement of our capabilities and those of our committed team.”
