Bunn Leisure scoops prestigious award

West Sussex-based holiday park, Bunn Leisure, has fought off stiff competition to win another top tourism award.

The 300-acre holiday park was awarded the regional Hospitality, Leisure and Tourism award at The News Business Excellence Awards in 2017, and was then automatically shortlisted for the JP South Business Awards.

At a glittering award ceremony at the Grand Hotel in Brighton, Bunn Leisure triumphed over other regional winners to win the Hospitality, Leisure and Tourism award for the south.

The award recognises those businesses that put the Portsmouth area on the map as a great place to live and visit.

Bunn Leisure is made up of four “villages” on the Sussex coast at Selsey. It provides a significant contribution to the local economy of West Sussex and south-east Hampshire, both through tourism and the provision of employment.

Managing Director John Bunn said: “We feel honoured that our hard work and huge reinvestment programme have been recognised with such a prestigious award.

“Bunn Leisure can accommodate in excess of 12,500 customers over a peak-season weekend, employing approximately 300 full-time staff and up to 300 additional staff during peak season.

“The entire operation contributes in excess of £60m to the local economy annually.”

Johnston Press Business Awards, now in its seventh year, is dedicated to recognising, rewarding and celebrating local businesses. The awards were presented by TV personality Nick Wallis on Friday, October 6.
