A room full of winners who joined us for dinner

Little did we know, when we celebrated 25 years of the GloucestershireLive Business Awards, that the sparkling awards ceremony which took place at Cheltenham Racecourse on Thursday 12 October, would sadly be the last!

Each year, in the Spring after the GloucestershireLive Business Awards ceremony, we celebrate with the winners by inviting them to a Winners’ Dinner at our office to congratulate them personally and get to know them better.

On the 7 March, we transformed our large meeting room into a restaurant for the evening and served a delicious two-course meal catered by Stroud-based Joanna Parker.

Before dinner was served we gathered with our guests in our reception area and raised a glass to the winners as well as to thank Reach Plc, with their brands; Gloucestershire Live and Business Live, represented on the evening by Clare Young, Key Account Director, for an amazing 25 years of the Gloucestershire Live Business Awards.
