*CORONAVIRUS UPDATE. No-one can predict how your celebrations may be affected on 13 October – whether they will need to be re-scheduled or simply adapted on the night. We wanted to assure you that, should numbers be restricted, we are exploring ways that other members of your organisations can join us virtually, and table requirements will be adjusted accordingly. We will keep you updated on developments throughout the summer.
One thing we do know is that nothing will stand in the way of our resilient #HighwaysHeroes. Recognise, Reward, Celebrate.
