Beverley Leisure Centre ‘the best’
Beverley Leisure Centre has been named as the best-performing council-run sports and leisure facility in the country. East Riding of Yorkshire Council beat off competition from more than 200 other local authorities to scoop the accolade in this year’s Association for Public Service excellence awards.
In addition, East Riding Council’s waste management team was named “most improved performer” in the refuse collection category. The APSE Performance Networks Awards recognise the best and most improved council services across the UK and Paul Bellotti, East Riding’s interim director of Environment and Neighbourhood Services, said: “Both these awards are fantastic achievements.”
He continued: “East Riding Leisure Beverley has now won the Best Performing Leisure Centre award six times, which is an outstanding result. And we are now the best local authority for recycling in England and our refuse collection crews provide our residents with a first class service.”
