PURBECK activities company Cumulus Outdoors has received the Dorset Tourism ‘Active and Sporting Experience’ Gold Award.

The award 'recognised providers of truly memorable and immersive active and sporting activities for visitors to participate in.'

Judges were made up from a panel of past award winners, media representatives and independent experts.

As well as looking for an ‘immersive and interactive experience’ the award, presented last month at The Tank Museum, also recognised the contribution to the visitor economy.

Cumulus Outdoors director Steve Thompson said: “This award is not about the company, it is about the professional, hard-working and passionate team we have working within it and I’m delighted Dorset Tourism have recognised this through the presentation of this award.

"We feel very fortunate and privileged to live and work in the fabulous Isle of Purbeck within the stunning county of Dorset and we feel equally privileged to be able to help people, both the young and not so young, to engage with it and enjoy it as much as we do."
