The Ropewalk retains VAQAS accreditation
The Ropewalk in Barton upon Humber has been praised during its recent assessment for the renewal of its Visitor Attraction Quality Assurance Scheme (VAQAS) certificate.
The VAQAS assessor Ian Foster said in his report that The Ropewalk certainly merited its continued accreditation by VisitEngland.
Highlighted for praise in Mr Foster’s report was the events and exhibitions publication, Ropewalk Magazine, the new Barton upon Humber Shrink Map and an improved website.
An assessment of the Maltkiln Road building, which includes art and craft galleries, a coffee shop and a live entertainment venue, Ropery Hall, concluded that it certainly merited the VisitBritain accreditation.
The exhibition galleries were also very well presented while in the Ropery Coffee Shop the presentation of food and drink was to very high quality standards and “ideal for the contemporary arts and craft area.”
Also highlighted was an improvement in the Museum display while the Sculpture Garden was described “as a very effective area and despite the time of year presented well.”
Managing Director, Liz Bennet, said she was delighted with the efforts of all The Ropewalk staff that had enabled The Ropewalk to secure the VAQAS certificate for a further three years.
“Everyone who works at The Ropewalk believe it is something special and the retention of the VAQAS certificate confirms our views,” she said.
“We believe all our staff care passionately about our customers and they are all committed to providing the highest standards of customer care, “she continued.
