Gloucestershire Family AwardsPublished:
In November 2017, Cheltenham Rocks received a Highly Commended award in the category of Family Champion at the Gloucestershire Family Awards.
After starting the website in 2016 as a place for Cheltenham families to easily find things to do local to them, the social community and website visitors have grown beyond anything we could have imagined, with over 8000 followers on social media and tens of thousands of visitors to the website each month.
The main aim has always been to help families get the most out of their time together and try to take some of the stress out of family life.
Receiving this award was a huge boost in confidence and confirmation that we're on the right track. Thank you to the Cheltenham Rocks community of followers, contributors and users, every one of you helps to keep the site going.
