Trio recognised for contributions to tourism

 Three East End ambassadors were recognised as part of Unesco’s World Tourism Day celebrations.

Kristin White, the owner of Long Story Short bookstore and a tour guide, Dennie O’Connor, the co-owner and operations director for Tobacco Bay and Clearwater Beach, and Alfred Konrad, the chef and co-owner for Wahoo’s Bistro and Patio, were honoured as ambassadors by the Corporation of St George.

The Bermuda Tourism Authority also donated a bench in memory of Phillip Anderson, a former councillor for the Town of St George, who died last year.

Ms White won the award in the cultural tourism category, Mr O’Connor in experience tourism and Mr Konrad in hospitality tourism.

All four were honoured at a presentation in St George’s last Friday, attended by George Dowling III, the Mayor of St George, town administrator Courtney Trott, Bermuda Tourism Authority chief operations officer Karla Lacey and area MP Renée Ming.
