It’s official - Tori is a tourism superstar
By Nicky Carter - Reporter
A DALE falconer has been named as a finalist in a national tourism campaign that recognises “individuals who go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure visitors have an unforgettable experience”.
Visit England has revealed the names of ten people who have been shortlisted for this year’s Tourism Superstar awards. Walworth Birds of Prey’s head falconer, Tori Goodall, is among them.
Ms Goodall, who has spent the past seven years establishing the visitor attraction at Walworth Castle, said she was “over the moon” to be nominated and delighted to be one of the finalists.
She said her main aim has been to ensure every visitor has a “once-in-a-lifetime” experience and leave with a smile on their face.
Ms Goodall has also developed her own promotional handout for the area with information about things to do, places to see and stay, as well as hidden gems and dog walks.
The winner of the tourism superstar award is decided public voting at mirror.co.uk.
The winner will be announced on April 25 and they will receive their award at a Visit England Excellence ceremony in Hull on June 16.
Last year’s winner was Emily Hope from Beamish Museum.
