Newton Abbot company win Gold at the annual British Pool & Hot Tub Awards 2017
Westcountry Leisure Pools based in Newton Abbot, Devon is celebrating after collecting Gold and Bronze Awards at the prestigious British Pool & Hot Tub Awards, hosted by BISHTA and SPATA, in Coventry.
The British and Irish Spa and Hot Tub Association (BISHTA) and the Swimming Pool and Allied Trades Association (SPATA) are the relevant bodies upholding standards within the Wet Leisure Industry. Rebranded in 2015, the first SPATA awards were won in 1978, and the first BISHTA awards were won in 2008.
These well-established awards are the UK’s number one wet leisure industry accolades.
The SPATA Gold Award was presented to Westcountry Leisure Pools for the Residential Outdoor Pools over £125,000 category. This swimming pool sits beautifully in its dramatic natural surroundings mirroring the colour of the sea and the recycled natural York stone copings age the pool beyond its years.
Mark Gilpin from Westcountry Leisure Pools said: “It is fantastic to be recognised by SPATA at the British Pool & Hot Tub awards this year. Taking home Gold and Bronze SPATA awards is a great achievement especially alongside such worthy contenders.
“As the industry body, SPATA’s recognition is a testament to the hard work our entire team.”
