John to be England's Tourism Superstar 2016?

img 4618lo 

Dr John Bevan, Chairman of the Historical Diving Society and the driving force behind Gosport’s Diving Museum has been selected by the national tourist board VisitEngland/Daily Mirror for the shortlist to become the Tourism Superstar 2016. The award recognises the dedication and passion of those working in the tourism industry, and is awarded to an individual who goes above and beyond the call of duty to ensure visitors to England have an unforgettable experience. 

Without his vision and input, the Diving Museum simply would not exist. He converted a derelict Victorian Gun Battery into an international tourist venue, which identifies Gosport as the home of global diving. His efforts paid off handsomely; the Museum recently reached the top six ‘Family Friendly Museums’ in the country (Telegraph newspaper), reached the top six in ‘Services with a Smile’ competition and this year it’s a finalist for the Queen’s Award for Volunteer Services.

The eventual winner of the Tourism Superstar will be chosen by public vote, so it would be great if you could vote for Dr Bevan and encourage your friends to vote for him also.

Dr Bevan is the second name down on the voting form.
