FOR the sec­ond year run­ning, Conwy Coun­cil has been named Best Per­former for parks, open spa­ces and hor­ti­cul­tural ser­vices at the APSE Awards.

APSE ( As­so­ci­a­tion for Pub­lic Ser­vice Ex­cel­lence) an­nounced the win­ners of the best and most im­proved per­form­ers in front­line ser­vices at a spe­cial awards event in Black­pool. The bench­mark­ing ex­er­cise looks at all as­pects of the ser­vice in­clud­ing the pro­vi­sion of play­grounds for all ages; num­ber of com­mu­nity events held; en­vi­ron­men­tal man­age­ment within the ser­vice; cus­tomer con­sul­ta­tion and sat­is­fac­tion and staff train­ing.

An­drew Wilkin­son, Conwy’s head of neigh­bour­hood ser­vices said: “Each year we re­view the in­for­ma­tion we’re sub­mit­ting to see how we can im­prove and it’s bril­liant that for the sec­ond time we have been recog­nised as the best.”

Conwy was also a fi­nal­ist for best per­former in ceme­tery and cre­ma­to­rium ser­vices, street clean­ing and trans­port op­er­a­tions and ve­hi­cle main­te­nance.

Cllr Dave Cowans, cab­i­net mem­ber for the en­vi­ron­ment, said: “The APSE award shows that we’re com­mit­ted to con­tin­u­ous im­prove­ment.

“I’d like to thank the all the teams who are out and about in all weath­ers for all their hard work.”
