ADVENTURE Island staff once again came together to mark the hard work that went into securing another successful summer of business.

The annual Star Awards were held at the Cliffs Pavilion as staff swapped their Adventure Island uniforms for suave suits and fancy dresses.

£100,000 was handed out to deserving staff members as their achievements throughout the year were honoured.

One big winner was Megan Grootaers who won a host of rewards resulting in a handy £3,000 win.

Her awards this year included top overall host, top summer host, best dress – a whopping three times – and Queen of Stockvale.

The awards mark the end of a very successful summer for Adventure Island, which saw tens of thousands of people enter the park, as well as a host of improvements to facilities.

Adventure Island tweeted: “One last HUGE congratulations to everyone who won awards at this year’s Star Awards evening.

“A fantastic night was had by all and over £100,000 in prize money was given out throughout the year to our amazing staff.

“Here’s to 2020.”

At the start of the summer, Adventure Island was given a £2million upgrade, including restaurants being redecorated and £180,000 spent on painting the park alone.
