Annual awards for contribution to Barry.

An annual awards presentation evening celebrating contributions to our town. There could be a number of different catagories such as community contribution, culture,business,education,youth,seniors and sport.
The awards could be connected to Barry Town Council's existing annual grant giving event that gives money to local organosations.
The event could also showcase local musical and performance talent.

Thinks this is a great idea to showcase and celebrate the many great things going on in Barry - and hopefully inspire others.
There is a Vale of Glamorgan Sports Awards - there's nothing else to celebrate othe achievements.
Barry's own Oscars is something that's do-able and sustinable.

It's a great idea. Pride in Barry did an Awards evening several years ago - see - the difficulty is the time that it takes to organise, and when you are a voluntary organisation, you have to make choices as to where is the best place to "invest" your scarcest resource eg volunteer time. So, I support the idea, but it needs a solid team of volunteers to "Make It Happen". The sponsorship to inevitably pay for it all, is not too difficult to achieve.
