A green awards scheme aimed at showcasing the environmental improvements taking place across the Caerphilly county borough has received a sponsorship boost.
SEDA, a major international packaging company with a base near Blackwood, has agreed to be a key sponsor for this year's 'Pride in Your Place' awards.
The awards help acknowledge the endeavour, innovation and commitment of those who have helped make our area cleaner, greener, safer and a better place to live, work and visit.
SEDA Managing Director Lorenzo Angelucci announced that the firm will provide £3,000 to sponsor the overall winner's award, as well as four individual category winners: -
- Best Environmental Business
- Sustainable Transport
- Environmental Education
- Best Community Project
"We are delighted to be part of this exciting awards scheme which helps highlight the good work being done across the county borough. Here at SEDA we pride ourselves on being a green, sustainable business so we are keen to align ourselves with this worthwhile scheme," said Lorenzo.
Last year saw the first ever 'Pride in Your Place' awards organised by Caerphilly county borough council and the competition was a great success. The awards scheme is open to all residents, schools, businesses and community groups with the Caerphilly county borough.
Mark Williams, CCBC head of Public Services said, "The inaugural Pride in Your Place initiative was extremely successful. It was a great opportunity to reward those who are making our community a better place to live. I'd like to say a big 'thank you' to SEDA for kindly sponsoring the competition this year so that we can continue to recognise the efforts of green-minded residents across the area and we now look forward to launching this year's scheme."
