Mary Rose Shortlisted for The News Business Excellence Awards

The Mary Rose Trust has been shortlisted for two awards by The News Business Excellence Awards in the categories of Community Contribution of the Year and Hospitality, Leisure and Tourism.

The Business Awards, now in their fifteenth year, recognise those who can prove business achievement and excellence in their field.

Paul Griffiths, Head of Operations at the Mary Rose Trust comments “I am absolutely delighted and honoured that we have been shortlisted for two awards by the Portsmouth News. We have an amazingly dedicated team of staff and volunteers at the Mary Rose and these nominations are very much due to all their hard work and efforts. Since opening the museum in May 2013 we have welcomed 750,000 visitors and I know from talking to other local businesses this has had a significant impact on the city’s economy. It is an exciting time for the city of Portsmouth and we are delighted to be able to play a part in its success.”
