Group Leisure & Travel Awards 2020

Many congratulations to all the winners of the GL&T Awards held yesterday evening on line.

Especially to those AGTO Associates who won and also those who were nominated – a great achievement.

AGTO had 2  nominations from its membership for GTO of the Year 2020 – congratulations to Anne Barnes and Gwen Wright for their nominations, but they faced exceptionally stiff competition from Christine Bennett, Deaf Group Holidays – a worthy winner. Anne & Gwen should be proud of themselves, AGTO certainly is, that they made the shortlist such a shame to miss the usual glittering bash.
