Hoseasons’ sales team racked up its 5,500th travel agency visit of 2011 this week and celebrated with a cake.

The Beccles branch of Co-operative Travel in Suffolk was the agency that helped the operator mark the achievement.

Pictured holding the cake are Pali Badwal, vice-president for lodges, parks, boating and apartments and Zena Calderbank.

Calderbank.said: “We have gone all out this year to help travel agents take advantage of the continued demand for domestic holidays.

“Our team has visited more agents to give support, training and guidance to make sure they have been ready to make the most of the opportunities that the appetite for UK holidays have brought about. We have offered training, product advice and merchandising support to more agents than ever before.”
