Carlisle Living Awards 2017

We were honoured to be part of the 2017 Carlisle Living Awards which took place on Friday 8 September.  The annual ceremony which was attended by more than 400 guests, showcased the very best of Carlisle and the surrounding areas.  The evening was a fantastic celebration of all that is great about the border city that help to make Carlisle the incredible place that it is.  Awards included the best restaurant, country pub, place to visit and digital success which David Allen IT Solutions were once again the proud sponsors of.

We were greeted on arrival to a drinks reception at the beautiful venue of the Garden at Eden, Eden Golf Club before taking our seats for the evening enabling us to mix and mingle with all of the other nominees, sponsors and guests of the awards.  We were delighted to have Anthony Cross and his partner Laura in attendance as our guests on behalf of Solway Communications and had the pleasure of their company for the evening where we all enjoyed a delicious meal before the awards ceremony began.

John Myers took to the stage and hosted the event, keeping us entertained throughout the evening with his usual wit and charm.  Here Hannah Cundall our Marketing Senior and Ashleigh Williams from our Financial Services team took the opportunity for a photo with John!

It was wonderful to see so many of our clients recognised for all of the hard work they put into making their businesses a success.  Tullie house were awarded the ‘Best Place to Visit’ award.  We are so pleased for them.  After last year’s ceremony where a special mention was made to Kyle Fisher of Dirty Filthy Barbers stating if there was a best barber category that he would win hands down, we were pleased to see the introduction of ‘The Best Barber Award’ this year which Kyle won, acknowledged for his amazing levels of customer service.

A special mention must go to Matt Rayson of The Old Bank City Pub and Chop House who was recognised with a ‘Very Highly Commended’ award in the ‘Best Restaurant’ category.  Team DA are regulars at The Old Bank and even get a lunch delivery to the office each week, so we were all delighted to see Matt’s hard work and fantastic journey to date celebrated.  Here we are enjoying the evening with Matt and his team…

There was simply too much success to mention, however we are proud to say that our clients really are the #bestofCarlisle.

David Allen IT Solutions once again, were the proud sponsors of the Digital City Award and I was delighted to take to the stage and present the award to Lloyd Motor Group marketing team who are leading the way with digital marketing.

We would like to thank Carlisle Living for hosting a fabulous event and look forward to next year, it was a pleasure to attend and celebrate everyone’s success.
