The track to success

The High Sheriff of East Sussex, Juliet Smith, presented the Trip Advisor 2015 “Certificate of Excellence” to the Volk's Electric Railway staff and volunteers yesterday.

The certificate was awarded by Trip Advisor, a travel site which gauges popularity and customer experiences from reviews written by visitors to attractions. The presentation took place at the Aquarium Station on Monday 13 July at 3.30pm.  

Volk's Manager Stuart Strong accepted the certificate of behalf of his staff and volunteers. Stuart said: “It is wonderful to see the effort the staff and volunteers put in rewarded and recognised in this way. We look forward to welcoming many more people to this historic attraction over the summer months and the years ahead.”
