The fourth 24housing awards went down a treat last night, with 14 awards being given out to a range of categories, including the highly coveted 'Housing Professional of the Year'
With more entries than ever before and with judges finding it harder than before to pick the winners from the shortlisted entries, the 24housing awards celebrated the best of the best. The winners were selected by a judging panel consisting of Eamon McGoldrick, Jenny Brown, Denise Fowler, Matthew Baxter, Chan Kataria and Mehban Chowdery.
Returning to the Ricoh Arena in Coventry for the second year, the event was hosted by the brilliant Mark Dolan, with the awards being followed with music from King Mantis, who topped off a great evening. Below you will find the winners of each category, for those who either missed out on attending or who consumed too much drink to remember...!
