Two top bosses have been given the best large independent travel agency award by Peter Andre.

Don Bircham and Lindsey Barber of Hays Travel North West, which runs stores across the borough, met the Mysterious Girl singer at the Jet2 VIP conference in Calpe, Spain.

The three-day conference recognises the hard work and commitment of the best independent travel agents throughout the UK.

Don and Lindsey were joined on the trip by Hays Travel North West Regional Manager Toni Smith, former manager of The Galleria Bolton store, and Emma May, manager of the firm’s Maghull store in Merseyside.

They were among more than 300 top performing agents and delegates taken out to the AR Diamante Beach & Spa in Calpe, Costa Blanca, by Jet2, the second largest tour operator in the UK.
