Team of the year RVTA

"Teamwork, so important to a successful business, and often critical to managing some of the major events in Ribble Valley. Most of the successful events in the area are run by volunteers and this presents added challenges. The winner of the next award, continually demonstrates, year on year, just what a successful team can deliver, a fantastic popular event, entertaining thousands of visitors and preserving unique aspects of country life and local tradition. The Team of the Year award goes to the Chipping Steam Fair Committee" Ribble Valley Tourism Awards, March 2016.
