SEPT 2020: Awards

With the postponement of our SVW Register annual event to next year we have lost the opportunity to pleasantly surprise the winners of our awards during the evening gala dinner. To try and maintain that pleasant surprise element, I list the winners below and I give them all my personal congratulations.

The Frances Adam Award for exceptional services to the Register is awarded to Gary and Perm Perry for the outstanding work they did in upgrading the Register website. The SVW Register committee gave Gary and Perm an outline brief of the requirements of the upgrade. We were all taken aback, as hopefully you all have been, with the superb result, far exceeding our expectations and a credit to them both and the SVW Register.

The David Washbourne Award for the most significant contribution to the SVW Review, as judged by the editor, is made to Des Wakeman for his articles concerning his restoration of his VA Tickford, plus its past history when owned by his friend Desmond George West.

The Peter Ratcliiffe Trophy will, for the first time in its history, not be awarded this year as, due to Covid-19, we will not be having a gathering of members with their cars this year.

We now have the logistics issue of getting the awards to the winners and hopefully we can all acknowledge their success and collectively congratulate them at next year’s dinner.

Jim Andrews, SVW Register Chairman
