We should have been about to leave sunny Carlisle this morning to attend the Johnstone's Paints, Painter of the Year Awards 2020.
The award ceremony, at the outstanding DoubleTree by Hilton in Harrogate, recognises and celebrates those in the decorating trade contributing to brilliant decorating throughout the UK and Ireland.
We were delighted to be attending the event as finalists for the second year running, this year in the Education category for our works completed at Wallyford Primary School but, with no way the event could go ahead in the current situation, we are instead today watching videos of all of the nominees and submitting our votes for our winners.
We would like to wish our fellow finalists the very best of luck and congratulations on such outstanding entries once again this year. We await the results on May 12th.
