Fishguard Community Awards 2018

Last night at the Fishguard Community Awards for 2018 were held at the Fishguard Bay Hotel just above Goodwick. The DigiChamps at POINT were nominated along with a number of other amazing community groups.

DigiChamps runs twice a month and has support from the DATRIS project. In the photo you can see myself (DATRIS Coordinator) and Abi Marriott (the Wellbeing Officer funded by the DATRIS project) working with young people at the POINT offices in Fishguard. The young DigiChamps attend each session and are on hand to help members of the community with whatever digital and IT problems they may be experiencing.

It was an interesting ceremony, with many deserving groups receiving awards and recognition for their work. When it came to the category “Community Group of the Year 2018” we were delighted to hear that the DigiChamps had won. Three of the young people were present to collect the award proudly watched by members of the POINT team and myself.
