Community centres up for prestigious awards

Three Neath Port Talbot community centres have been short listed for prestigious awards.

The Council run Aberavon, Mozart Drive and Baglan community centres have been selected as finalists for the Association of Public Service Excellence (APSE) awards.

Aberavon Community Centre has been selected as a finalist for the Overall Best Performer and Overall Most Improved Performer awards with Mozart Drive Community Centre and Baglan Community Centre being nominated as finalists for the Overall Most Improved Performer

The community centres had to complete a stringent validation process, including user numbers and cost effectiveness, to qualify for the awards.

Leader of council Ali Thomas said Neath Port Talbot Council will compete against more than 90 community venues all over the UK.

He said: "It is a privilege to be recognised as finalists. The Community Development and Projects Section have been awarded these titles twice previously.

"I am excited at the prospect of the award being brought back to Neath Port Talbot for a third time whilst at the same time promoting the good work which goes on in our community centres throughout Neath Port Talbot."

The award ceremony will take place on the December 3rd and 4th at the Hilton Hotel, Blackpool.
