Awards success for Falmouth team


Falmouth won a brace of awards at the Town and City Management Industry Award 2022.

Falmouth Business Improvement District (BID) executive director, Richard Wilcox, was named UK Inspirational Leader of the Year, while the virtual Sea Shanty Festival was named Best Digital Project.

“I am proud and humbled by our recognition,” said Wilcox. “I know that up and down the country, there have been some incredible projects delivered by my colleagues and their teams to support hundreds of thousands of businesses and enable high streets to continue operating through the pandemic. For Falmouth to be acknowledged as one of the best is, as I say, humbling.

Speaking about the judging panel’s decision to recognise Falmouth, Ojay McDonald, chief executive of the Association of Town and City Management (ATCM), commented: “Falmouth continues to punch well above its weight. The stresses and strains of the pandemic have created challenges for destinations everywhere, but the hard work, professionalism, and dynamism of the Falmouth team has allowed the town to gain influence on the international stage.”
