Award for Market Deeping travel agency

STAFF at a Market Deeping travel agency have picked up a company-wide award – less than 12 months after the branch opened.

The Market Deeping Anglia Co-operative Travel outlet scooped the branch of the year award for its region at an annual conference.

The branch opened at The Precinct in Market Deeping in February and manager Sarah Mantle was joined by staff Siobain Aaron, Sarah Clark and Kimberley Bland to pick up the award.

Sarah said: “We feel very proud. It’s still sinking in – to get such an important award in our first year is fantastic for us.”

Staff were rated on their customer care and community activities.

Anglia Co-op retail group manager, Paul Dale, said: “The girls are so well-known – Sarah Clark and Siobain Aaron worked for Deeping Travel in Market Deeping before it closed and Kimberly Bland was with Deeping Travel in Bourne – and they have gelled really well together.

“For them to win branch of the year in their first year is absolutely amazing.”
