Awards encourage local businesses to ‘Shine a light’ on themselves!

The Bridgend Business Forum Awards 2018 have launched, giving businesses across Bridgend County Borough a chance to shine a light on their success.

Organised by Bridgend Business Forum and supported by Bridgend County Borough Council, the awards celebrate excellence amongst local businesses and provides a fantastic opportunity to showcase their business, and celebrate their achievements.

Now in its sixth year, the 2018 awards feature a brand new category; the ‘professional services business of the year award’, which recognises the outstanding work of accountants, financial, and legal companies.

Businesses across the county borough are able to nominate themselves in a wide range of categories created to acknowledge the cream of Bridgend County Borough’s vibrant business sector.

  • Business student of the year – sponsored by Graham Paul Chartered Accountants
  • Creative industries award – sponsored by Handelsbanken
  • Innovative business of the year – sponsored by Development Bank of Wales
  • Professional services business of the year – sponsored by Aevitas

 Sponsored by main sponsor, Rockwool UK Ltd, the winner of each category will have the chance to win the overall ‘Bridgend Business of the Year’ award.

Chair of the forum, Ian Jessopp, said: “We’re thrilled to have launched our sixth annual business awards. With a brand new category launching this year, we’ve never been more excited!

“We encourage all businesses across Bridgend County Borough, not matter how big or small, to enter our 2018 awards and celebrate their achievements with us.”

Full details of the awards including application forms and advice and tips on how to submit an entry, can be found at Entries close at 5pm on Friday 6 July.

Playgrounds upgraded with new inclusive equipment

Seven playgrounds across Bridgend County Borough are being revamped with brand new inclusive play equipment.

The fun new additions, which are suitable for all abilities including wheelchair users, have already been installed at the Pencoed Recreation Ground and Waun Llwyd in Nantymoel during recent weeks, and will appear at five other playgrounds by the end of May.

Children playing at Griffin Park in Porthcawl will soon be able to enjoy an inclusive basket swing and a new slide/house which will feature wheelchair accessible activities.

The new apparatus at Maesteg Welfare Park will include a play telescope, climbing net, finger trace panels, double basket swing and an inclusive picnic table.

The playground at Newbridge Fields in Bridgend will get new safe surfacing, a 1.2m high slide with accessible stairs, an inclusive basket swing, a new ‘klump’ springer, a sparkling butterfly play panel, and an accessible path.

In Pontycymer, the Victoria Street playground is being painted with fun floor graphics to help with road safety awareness, while an inclusive seesaw, music panels, and inclusive basket swing will also be installed.

New floor graphics are also on their way to the playground next to Ynysawdre Swimming Pool, as well as new surfacing and an inclusive roundabout, swing seat and basket swing.

These bright new additions will make all of these playgrounds accessible for all children to enjoy. We’ve received many requests in recent years for there to be more opportunities for children with disabilities to have a greater choice of apparatus available to them at our playgrounds so we are absolutely thrilled to be able to make these improvements.

Disruption will be kept to a minimum while the new equipment is being added, so please bear with us while the work is carried out

Bridgend County Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Communities, Councillor Richard Young

Councillor Young added: “While we are very excited about these improvements, it brings to mind the senseless vandalism that we saw a few weeks ago in North Cornelly where new play equipment was set on fire. It goes without saying that we hope this new equipment will be treated respectfully by all users.”
