April was a great month for Shropshire as a independent travel experts Peakes Travel Elite and local sports club Shropshire Squash Club both picked up prestigious awards.

Both organisations had recently boosted their online presence by investing in a brand new website from Shropshire’s expert web developers Six Ticks.

Peakes Travel Elite was awarded the prestigious ‘UK & Ireland’s No.1 Travel Agency 2019’ award in the TTG Top Travel Agencies 2019 awards.

Shropshire Squash Club was named ‘Squash Club of the Month’ by England Squash, a result of key efforts in the past 12 months to upgrade the club’s facilities and profile.

Claire Moore, Joint Proprietor and Manager of Peakes Travel Elite comments:

“We are thrilled to receive such amazing industry recognition for the work we do. Being crowned the UK & Ireland’s No.1 Travel Agency is one of our proudest achievements. We have always been committed to providing the very best service to our customers and to have that acknowledged on a national scale is wonderful. We are excited to build on this success and keep going from strength to strength.

“Following the launch of the new website we have already seen a huge increase in the number of inquiries we have received which suggests it will be great for business going forward.”

Ben Schur, Junior Development Coach, Shropshire Squash Club, comments:

“We’re thrilled to have been named England Squash Club of the Month for April! It’s great recognition for all of the individual voluntary work undertaken within Shropshire Squash Club to achieve so much in such a relatively short period of time.”

Andy Lawrence from Shropshire Squash Club Committee added:

“With a dated website and 10-year old technology, we thought it was high time to both raise the marketing profile to generate a new wave of young players, and to make certain features more accessible for club members…The site was launched this summer and immediately began attracting new members in exactly the manner we’d hoped and planned.

“From where our journey began, we’re now a fantastic 27% up on total membership numbers and have an immensely satisfying 62% increase within our key 20-39 age group.”
