Hopping Across The North East From Hub To Hub

Award ceremony PINs down community achievement

Screen Shot 2016-04-07 at 14.47.17PEOPLE making a difference in their community have been recognised at the first ever PIN Community Awards.

PIN – the People’s Information Network – allows residents across the borough to quickly and easily find useful services, ranging from breakfast clubs to information on training providers.

The awards celebrated all the people who make a difference to the Redcar and Cleveland community. Winners this year included Health Walk Leaders, Community Health Champions and Chairs/Vice Chairs from Children’s Centres across the borough.

They were all given awards to recognise the fact they give time and support to local people as well as representing the views of their local community.

Held at Tuned In! the awards were part of a bigger launch event for PIN which saw services and the local community come together to learn more about the network. The event saw people get into the Easter spirit with arts and crafts, featuring a healthy living message making residents more aware of how much sugar and fat is present in everyday food.

Cllr Brenda Forster, the Mayor of Redcar and Cleveland, said: “I was delighted to be at the launch of the People’s Information Network, this is a great resource for residents across the borough to find services that are best for them.

“It was also a pleasure to present such vital members of the community with their awards, without their hard work and support PIN wouldn’t be possible.”
