Pengwern Community Hwb wins county achievement award

A Llangollen community project was in the honours at a prestigious awards ceremony to celebrate the achievement of tenants across the county.

The Denbighshire Housing Awards, held at the 1891 Restaurant in Rhyl last Thursday, was a celebration of all that tenants and communities achieve as well as showcasing projects they are involved in.

This year’s award sponsors were Brenig Construction who are the lead contractor on the Llwyn Eirin project in Denbigh which contains the first new council homes to be designed and built for the Denbighshire area in 30 years.

Community Project of the Year tile was won by Community Hwb Cymunedol Pengwern, Llangollen.

Denbighshire County Council secured over £78,000 of funding for the Hwb project, which was officially opened in August, from the National Lottery and Rural Futures.

The aim was to develop Pengwern Community Centre into a community hub space that aims to meet the needs and aspirations of the surrounding area and Llangollen generally.

South Denbighshire Community Partnership (SDCP) has employed a part-time project coordinator for the project to initially consult with the community so that everyone has the opportunity to have their say and share their thoughts of what services and activities are most important to them, their families and their community.

At the awards ceremony Councillor Rhys Thomas, Cabinet Lead Member for Housing and Communities, said: “The Denbighshire Housing Awards continue to go from strength to strength. It’s great to bring communities and individuals together to celebrate what they have all achieved through hard work, determination and simply being great tenants.

“Day in day out we see a huge amount of positive work going on throughout our communities led by our tenants to help support and improve the quality of life for all.

“Being shortlisted for an award is an honour for those groups and individuals and our thanks go to them for their efforts in their local communities."
