APSE Service Awards
The APSE Service Awards are a prestigious UK-wide awards scheme run by the Association for Public Service Excellence (APSE), an organisation that recognises the achievements of public services.
Swansea Market won the award for ‘Best Commercialisation and Entrepreneurship Initiative‘ at the 2022 awards at a ceremony held in September at Swansea Arena.
Cllr David Hopkins, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Corporate Services and Performance at Swansea Council, said: “Swansea Market has been at the heart of Swansea life for many years, and it will continue to play a key role in future as part of our city centre’s £1bn transformation.
“Recent schemes like the new customer toilets, the market garden and the new casual trading facilities are supporting entrepreneurship while also generating more footfall and spending at the market, which is helping accelerate our city’s economic recovery from the pandemic.
“Receiving the APSE award for best commercialisation and entrepreneurship initiative is credit to the work of our fantastic market staff and market traders who continue to do so much to raise the market’s profile across the UK and beyond.
“Further improvements are also earmarked at the market in the coming years to create an even better trading and visiting experience there.”
