Golly G-Awards Are a Stunner

The G-Awards achieved a record turnout with 14 trophies presented (the highest number ever) and an attendance of 600 at the gala black tie and posh frocks dinner.

 Two new awards for 2022 – for Rising Star and Machinery Supplier of the Year were added to the dozen from previous outings.

The glass G-22 trophies were presented by actor and comedian Hugh Dennis who entertained the crowd with his wry sense of humour before welcoming the  winners up to the stage to be applauded by their peers.


 “Once again, we have seen how the real leaders have come to the fore when they were put to the test.”
