Gateshead Council is delighted to announce that two of our services have been shortlisted as finalists at this year’s APSE Service Awards. These awards recognise the very best in local government frontline services across the UK.
Speaking about the awards APSE Chief Executive Paul O’Brien said “Local councils do great work but too often they are the unsung heroes of public services. These awards are about celebrating the hard work and achievements of frontline services, and the local government workforce delivering them. These services and local initiatives make a real difference to local places and local people. Congratulations to all the finalists”.
The winners will be announced at APSE Annual Charity Awards Dinner, in aid of Parkinson’s UK on Thursday 12th September 2019 which is being held in Newcastle.
The Gateshead finalists this year are:
Best Service Team: Catering Service – Gateshead School Catering
Best Service Team: Facilities Management & Building Cleaning Service – Building Cleaning Service
We wish both services the best of luck and will let you know if they are successful winners in September.
