The team at North Northamptonshire Council are celebrating after West Glebe Sports Pavilion in Corby was selected for a second time as a finalist 2022 in the ‘Best Performers’ in the Sports and Leisure Facility Management category at the annual Association for Public Service Excellence Awards (APSE).

Although West Glebe Sports Pavilion didn’t take away the top prize, making the finals puts the facility in the top 10% nationally.

The APSE awards uses performance data in relation to the facility running costs and attendance for the past financial year and compares it to the national picture.

This is a great achievement and one that staff at West Glebe Pavilion should be extremely proud of. It is down to their dedication that the Pavilion has received national recognition for a second time and I hope that it continues to be recognised on a national stage, alongside all the excellent NNC owned leisure facilities we have in the area.Cllr Helen Howell, the council’s Deputy Leader and Sport, Leisure, Culture and Tourism
Being nominated for a national award is always an honour and West Glebe Sports Pavilion is worthy of this accolade, as it boasts a range of excellent facilities which meets the needs of the local and larger communities.Cllr Jason Smithers, Leader of the Council

Unfortunately, representatives from NNC were unable to attend the awards ceremony which took place on Thursday 1 December as part of the Performance Networks seminar in Blackpool.
