AN AWARDS ceremony is being held for tenants who improve their communities.

Denbighshire Housing, Denbighshire County Council's housing department, will stage its second Tenant Awards in Rhyl this summer.

The awards celebrate the achievements and participation of tenants, their work within the communities in which they live and projects that are happening across Denbighshire.

Categories include tenant of the year, housing resident of the year, community group of the year, young tenant of the year, garden of the year, community project of the year, community hero of the year and good neighbour of the year.

The ceremony will also see a Denbighshire Housing employee receive the customer service of the year award.

Tony Thomas, Denbighshire County Council’s cabinet member for housing and communities, said: “Improving housing is a priority for the Council and hosting events like this is a great way of honouring individuals and communities for their commitment. Our tenants and our own colleagues provide a tremendous amount of work and commitment out there and are great ambassadors for Denbighshire Housing.

“We are honoured and delighted to be launching the 2020 awards and look forward to another night to remember in May and to award those that go the extra mile in creating a great environment for our tenants and communities.”

The main sponsor is G Parry, the Ruthin building company that has operated for 40 years.

Owner Geraint Parry said: “Whilst contractors such as ourselves have a major part to play in building and construction work on properties, it is often the unsung heroes that work to manage individual properties and estates.

“There are lots of examples of good work across Denbighshire and we would urge people to get nominating and give us an opportunity to recognise their achievement.”

The ceremony takes place at 1891 in, Rhyl on May 20.
