After a 2 year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic it was fantastic to see the industry gather and celebrate the award finalists and winners of the 9 new awards categories.
Held at the Barn on 10th of June, the 450 guests were welcomed through a magical tunnel of fairy lights and enjoyed complimentary drinks before formal proceedings started with M.C Lehmo providing plenty of laughs and entertainment throughout the evening. Each award category was presented by its sponsors and celebrated all the finalists before announcing award winners.
The highlight of the night was the announcement of the GTTIA inaugural Timber Legend Award- Mr Glyn “Pat Rusty” Lamb. Honouring the incredible achievements of his career and showcasing how his efforts to establish the export chip market from Portland continue to impact and benefit the Green Triangle region today.
The GTTIA Committee are very pleased to have held such a successful evening. GTTIA Chairman, Mr. Adrian Flowers said “To be able to be together and celebrate our industry and its people’s success is incredibly important. I am so pleased to share, nominations for this year’s event were of especially high calibre which is why we had so many finalists for each category. We are also exceptionally pleased with the turn out to the Gala Dinner – it was a great night and opportunity to gather with people from across the region.” Mr Flowers then went on to say “ We also would like to recognise the sponsors of this event who continually support us together with all of the suppliers who have had to alter plans many times due to the continual delays. It is because of them that we have been able to host an incredibly successful evening for all the attendees and award winners”.
