Rhyl Town Mayors Gala Awards Evening

RHYL Town Council is celebrating the eighth year of the Rhyl Mayor’s Gala Awards Evening and the search is now on to find the heroes of 2016.

The event is to be held on Thursday, March 31st at 7pm, at the Pavilion Theatre and will feature a number of local artistes who have given their time to help Rhyl mayor, councillor Barry Mellor (pictured), to celebrate achievement in Rhyl.


Included in the line up will be the Jersey 4, a four piece vocal harmony group celebrating the music of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons.

Tickets are available for the gala evening priced at only £7, from the Pavilion Theatre Box Office on 01745 330000 or online at http://www.rhylpavilion.co.uk/rhyl-town-mayors-gala-awards-evening/#more-7034

The event promises to be an evening of great entertainment, and a great chance to acknowledge local achievers. Don’t forget you still have time to nominate. If you feel that someone in your community deserves recognition, now is your opportunity to ensure that they are publicly acknowledged. So whether you or someone you know has made a difference by creating a positive environment, we want you to tell us about it.

The Rhyl Journal is the media partner for this event and you can find the nomination form at http://www.rhyljournal.co.uk/ (right side of the home page halfway down) or in the Rhyl Journal paper

Categories for nominations are:

Ambassador of Rhyl sponsored by the event’s main sponsor Arriva

This award seeks to acknowledge an organisation or an individual who through word or deed has actively promoted the town of Rhyl to the wider community.

Best Neighbour Award sponsored by Pennaf (Clwyd Alyn

Housing Association)

We all have stories about neighbours who are the heart of their street, checking up on the elderly residents, feeding next door’s pets when they go on holiday and perhaps organising lifts to the shops for the less able.

Always there and able to be counted on for help with those minor emergencies the good neighbour is a cornerstone of a good community.

If you know of such a person now is your chance to have them rewarded.

Sports Award sponsored by Denbighshire Leisure

This award is less about sporting excellence which brings its own rewards and more about encouraging participation regardless of ability – allowing everyone to feel part of the team.

Sport is more than just winning and can help to develop long term friendships. Often sports teams rely on two or three key individual volunteers who are prepared to dedicate time and energy in undertaking not only coaching of team members but the necessary administration work that goes with it. The purpose of this award is to recognise these individuals whether they are coaching adult or junior teams.

Youth Award sponsored by Coleg Llandrillo

This award is designed to recognised those who work with, or for the youth of Rhyl. We have fantastic young people in our town, many of whom get involved in activities which benefit Rhyl as a whole. This can be through personal volunteering or membership of one of the town’s many youth organisations. Their work is often gratefully received but rarely properly acknowledged.

If you know of such people please tell us about them. Similarly a lot of organisations are established to provide the youth of the town with activities. More often than not these groups are developed by individuals banding together to meet the needs of their own children, but which subsequently become a major asset to the local community and the town generally. The award is designed to recognise either the work of individuals or groups with young people in Rhyl or the young people themselves for what they have achieved in our community.

Best Voluntary Worker sponsored by Denbighshire Youth Service

Rhyl is blessed with large numbers of local community and voluntary workers who give their time free of thought of any personal reward to help others. This award is the chance for those who receive or witness the benefits of their work to say thank you by nominating them for an award to see them publicly recognised.

Best Business sponsored by Willmott Dixon

This award is designed to acknowledge a new or expanded business which has made an immediate impact on the well being of the town and the wider community.

Tackling Homelessness sponsored by Pro Care Wales

Homelessness is a national problem negatively affecting individuals and families across the UK. Homelessness can be brought about by numerous reasons and can have a devastating impact on the lives of families and individuals. Many organisations have been established seek to respond to the consequences of homelessness. This award seeks to recognize an individual or group who has worked tirelessly to address the needs of people affected by homelessness issues.

Nominations close on March 18 and must be sent to:

Councillor Barry Mellor,

The Mayor of Rhyl,

Rhyl Town Council

Civic Offices,

Wellington Community Centre,

Wellington Road,


LL18 1LE
