Foundations laid for 2020 housing awards in Denbighshire

Denbighshire Housing is launching its second annual Tenant Awards, to recognise tenants’ achievements and commitment.

The awards will celebrate the achievements and participation of tenants, their work within the communities in which they live and projects that are happening across Denbighshire. They are also proud to announce that the main sponsor for this year’s awards is G Parry of Ruthin, a local building company who has been operating for over 40 years and employ a local skilled workforce.

This year’s event will be hosted at 1891 in Rhyl on 20 May and over  80 delegates are expected to attend, including key housing professionals, tenants and members of our communities and tenants.

This year’s award categories will include:

  • Tenant of the year
  • Housing resident / Community Group of the year
  • Customer services award for Denbighshire Housing
  • Young tenant of the year
  • Garden of the year – Community area
  • Garden of the year – Tenant
  • Garden of the year – Communal area
  • Community projects of the year
  • Denbighshire Housing Award

They are proud to launch two new awards for this year; Community Hero of the Year & Good neighbour of the year.  These awards are open to anyone who is a neighbour of or has helped a Denbighshire Housing tenant.

Councillor Tony Thomas, Cabinet Lead 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.

Geraint Parry of G Parry, Ruthin, said:

“We are delighted and proud to be supporting this year’s Denbighshire Housing Tenant awards as main sponsor. 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.”
