We were honoured and delighted to be contacted by a customer who was happy to share some incredible images she took at the Scottish International Airshow held early in September. It was reported that a record breaking 160,000 visitors attended the event over two days which included a spectacular display from the Red Arrows which is captured so majestically in these dramatic images.

The concert planned to be performed on Sword Beach on 6th June 2019 has been relocated thanks to a successful petition. The concert received fierce protest and opposition from veterans who objected to the location and date of the concert which coincided with the 75th Anniversary of the D-Day Landings, where many relatives of veterans involved in the Normandy Landings are planning to visit to mark the anniversary.
Thank you to all who signed the petition which resulted in the concert being moved to a more fitting location.Read More

It was a pleasure to sponsor and support the sixteenth National Service Day event at the National Arboretum this year. The National Service Memorial and National Service Day were the brainchild of Gerald Rose, Chairman of the National Service Foundation, who campaigned tirelessly and was finally rewarded for his endavours in 2003. The then Prime Mninister, Tony Blair, confirmed that the last Sunday in June of each year was to be an official day of remembrance and reminiscence for all conscripts of National Service: National Service Day. It has always been a great pleasure for us at AWARD to work with and support Gerald who has retired from the role of organising it this year. His legacy to acknowledge the vital contribution of those who served National Service is one we can all be grateful for. .
