Ceredigion Youth Service (CYS) will host an annual awards ceremony on April 17, at Theatr Felinfach between 4-7pm. The ceremony will be an opportunity to celebrate and recognise the achievements and successes of all the young people who have engaged with CYS during the past year.

These have been successful due to the commitment and enthusiasm shown by the young people from all over Ceredigion. The ceremony is an excellent opportunity to celebrate the achievements of the young people and to reflect the excellent opportunities organised and provided by Ceredigion Youth Service.”

The ceremony will recognise over 400 individuals who have achieved nationally recognised accreditations in 2017-2018 and will showcase a set of outstanding achievements and work by young people. Invitations have been distributed to young people aged 11-25 and their families, from across the county to attend the awards ceremony.
