port-talbort2Marilyn Collard from Castle Leisure Limited said: “I wish to express our thanks for such a wonderful event on Friday. The whole occasion was very impressive. To win both awards was such an achievement and it was good to be recognised in this way. As a company we continue to support the Environment, and going forward, I hope that from these results, other businesses will realise what an impact they can make to the Environment and their profits, without any capital expense. We are very proud to have been part of the initiative”

Excellent feedback was also received from all who attended the evening.

The Leader of the Council Ali Thomas said: “The event was a great success and highlighted the excellent work being carried out in Neath Port Talbot to improve the environment we live in.”

neath-port-talbort-jamyA Spokesperson for the NPT Environment Forum stated: “We hope to continue on from the success of this year’s event in promoting local groups, schools, organisations and businesses who are doing something positive from the environment. We will be holding a 2011 Awards and look forward to receiving many more entries.”

Every category winner who was honoured at the awards were given a high quality superb looking acrylic award, which will be displayed with pride. It’s worth knowing that cast acrylic is a fully recyclable material making it very environmentally friendly, and you’ll find that here at Jamy Ltd we recycle more than 95% of the ‘waste’ material created in the process before using the reclaimed materials to create awards and plaques.
