The Inspiration Dolphins Awards 2017

The Inspiration Dolphins Awards took place at the Dolphins Hall in Tetbury on Friday 29th September 2017.  Groups and individuals came together to thank the many people who help make Tetbury a thriving town.

The Awards were jointly presented by the Mayor, Councillor Stephen Hirst and Councillor Kevin Painter, who came up with the concept for the first Awards event in 2010.

Councillor Hirst said “I am delighted that we have been able to recognise the contribution of so many people to the life and vibrancy of this beautiful town.”

Councillor Painter said “This is why people love to visit and live in Tetbury – it’s the people that make it.”

The event was well received by all concerned and, following feedback, the Town Council is looking to repeat the event in 2019 or 2020.
