On Thursday 15th December, Yate Mayor, Councillor Cheryl Kirby, held her Christmas Reception at Poole Court.
This event is held annually to thank our amazing teams of volunteers at the Pop Inn Café, Yate and District Heritage Centre, the Armadillo Youth Café and Yate Outdoor Sports Complex (YOSC), as well as volunteers from many of the local groups within the community that give up their time to make Yate the great town that it is.
During the reception many of the groups that have received a community grant from us this year were also acknowledged with over £12,645 being distributed to assist these good causes.
Councillor Cheryl Kirby commented:-
“I was so pleased to be able to host this event which is always well received by everyone attending. It is important that our volunteers and community groups know how much they are valued by us as Councillors and by everyone using these services in the community.
I wish everyone a good Christmas and Happy New Year.”
