Liz Hill, Founder of Rural Concierge in Hereford, has reached the top ten in Visit England’s Tourism Superstar competition in conjunction with the Daily Mirror, and is seeking the county’s support in an online vote.
The competition recognises the dedication and passion of those working in the tourism industry, and aims to reward the individual who goes above and beyond the call of duty.
Liz Hill, founder of Rural Concierge based in the Hereford Butter Market, was nominated by Visit Herefordshire for her commitment to the industry and passion for the local area. Her company, Rural Concierge, was established in 2013 when Liz spotted a gap in the market for local tourism information in Herefordshire. The company arranges tailored trips and itineraries, including tips on how to “get off the beaten track”, and works closely with local businesses and coach companies.
The success of the idea has won plenty of recognition for the Rural Concierge team. In 2016, Liz won Best Rural Tourism Business at the Rural Business Awards. She was also a finalist in the Chamber Business Awards
in June 2016 for Small Business of the Year.
Liz said: “I am really happy to be nominated by Visit Herefordshire for the 2017 Tourism Superstar. This will help raise even more awareness nationally of Herefordshire and is great timing with Hereford’s bid for the City of Culture”.
Voting is now open
for the 2017 Tourism Superstar via the Daily Mirror website. The winner will be announced during English Tourism Week (Saturday 25 March – Sunday 2 April).
