Ilfracombe in North Devon was the first town in the UK to complete a pilot programme run by the National Campaign for Courtesy to recognise businesses for their courtesy.
On Friday 8 June 2012 at Ilfracombe Library, the Right Honourable Ann Widdecombe presented the Mayor of Ilfracombe with a certificate marking this achievement after more than 100 businesses took part.
Ilfracombe courteous town initiative
More than 100 Ilfracombe businesses were recognised for their courtesy during the programme.
The aim is to recognise ‘courteous businesses‘ and to help all businesses improve courtesy to make it an even better place for everyone who works and lives there and to improve the experience of everyone dealing with businesses in Ilfracombe.
How did the initiative help your business?
Each week, for 15 weeks, the initiative focused on a different aspect of courtesy, how it can help your business and what you can do to improve, if you need to.
But I’m already courteous
Then please help spread the word to help others.
Do you want your town to be recognised for its courtesy?
Following the success of the Ilfracombe pilot scheme, the National Campaign for Courtesy has built on it to create the annual Top Town Award.
