Around Ireland with a fridge comedian Tony Hawks popped up at another RICS regional awards on Friday, this time in Yorkshire (yes he did the being mistaken for Tony Hawk the skateboarder joke, again).
Bedecked with sparkling lights, the Centenary Pavilion on Eland Road in Leeds saw around 250 of the county's property professionals gather to see who had won the RICS Pro Yorkshire awards - the Hepworth Gallery in Wakefield had a very good night - and we handed out our own Yorkshire & North East adviser and property company of the year awards.
Picking up the adviser award for the 8th year running was Sanderson Weatherall. No Tim 'Bananaman' Caterall this year but David Rastrick and Richard Dunn were on hand to celebrate in the usual exuberant Sanderson style. Raising not just a (pint) glass or two (see pic right)
Henry Boot Developments lifted the property company award. Speaking afterwards Vivienne Clemants said how surprised they were to win as the company normally keeps a low profile.
With the awards dispensed it was time to hit bar and with only our West Midlands awards left to present EG's regional awards are nearly over for another year.
Congratulations to Sanderson Weatherall and Henry Boot and all our other winners.
A few unofficial official snaps can be seen in the slide show below, and we'll add in the official photos as they arrive.
