Winners of 2017 Awards – Trips with a tot South Yorkshire For Kids Awards

Hello and a big welcome to the announcements of the winners of the Trips with a tot South Yorkshire For Kids Awards 2017.  There were THOUSANDS of votes (wow!!!!) and countless times where many shortlisted nominee’s where at a draw and came head to head. A big thank you to all who voted in the awards, your vote really did count to who won the awards this year.

Running these awards were a lot of fun, even though it was quite a last minute decision for myself! It was amazing to give the chance of so many fantastic places, things to do and small family friendly businesses the recognition they deserve. The winners list continue to be here in future so that everyone can benefit from getting inspired about the best things to do for kids in South Yorkshire.

A big congratulations to all winners and runners up!

Thank you to everyone who voted and nominated!

What will happen in next years awards? Well, firstly, the feedback I got in general was that there are far too many categories… and I agree. I will be merging these into 4 categories in total: Best Days Out & Things To Do, Groups & Classes, Food & Drink and Special Mentions. In many of the categories, the subcategories will be condensed and some of them will be removed all together. I’m very excited about the awards for 2018; I’m hoping to split up the categories at different times of the year rather than all together. Please stay tuned for more information of these will start.

You can see the original two awards blog posts here if you missed them:
