Celebrating Sir Donald Insall’s 90th Birthday
March 18, 2016
Last month our colleagues past and present were invited to join in our surprise celebration for Sir Donald Insall’s 90th birthday, featuring a giant 90th birthday cake (pictured) in the shape of Chester’s walled City designed by our very own team in Chester. Sir Donald is a freeman of the City of Chester and is widely acknowledged as the pioneering saviour of the City as it stands today, through the renowned conservation programme of the 1970s. The celebration coincided with a double win for Donald Insall Associates at the prestigious Civic Trust Awards.
During a brief speech, Sir Donald stressed the importance of celebrating the people behind our work, concluding: “Thank you for being who you are. Aren’t we lucky?”
