James Cain, managing director of Water Brands Group, said:
We are delighted to be sponsoring this category again. The event showcases the fantastic individuals who work in this town – they’re very welcoming to tourists and those attending hospitality events – which helps contribute to Harrogate’s success as a first-class tourist destination. Last year’s winner, Craig Drummond from Montey’s Bar beat tough competition to take the title of Bar Person of the Year 2011 and is a fine example of the type of candidate we are hoping to find again this year.
Further evidence of that comes as programmes such as ‘The Great British Countryside’, which first aired on BBC One on the 16th February, chose to film in Harrogate – which was featured on the programme this Thursday evening, 23rd February. Presenter Julia Bradbury stopped off at our spring water plant to see for herself how our spa town’s famous mineral water product is sourced and bottled.
