Following the inaugural CamPropFest + Eastern Echo Awards event, the winners can now be officially announced.

Almost 200 guests gathered at Homerton College’s new Dining Hall for the occasion, recognising the success of the East of England’s property market.

The awards were handed out by Goldie Sayers, Olympic bronze medallist and British record holder for Javelin

The Eastern Echo Awards at Homerton College ended with the Leader of the Year Award, which went to Andy Hill, CEO of local firm Hill Group.
