Barry’s most recently honoured citizen, Dilys Colbourne, awarded the MBE in the Queens Birthday Honours, has been recognised by Pride In Barry and becomes the second Pride In Barry Ambassador.


At a recent Pride In Barry meeting, Dilys agreed to become an Ambassador and was presented with a Certificate by Pride In Barry Chairman Paul Haley.


Paul Haley said, “Everyone involved with Pride In Barry is absolutely delighted at your award in Her Majesty The Queen’s Birthday Honours, and we are equally delighted that you have agreed to be an Ambassador. Your efforts in serving the community of Barry for over 30 years and ensuring the survival and restoration of Central Park and Barry Town Hall & Library are an inspiration.”


Speaking at the presentation, Dilys Colbourne said, “I am delighted to agree to becoming an Ambassador as I am keen to help improve the image of Barry and encourage people to appreciate the wonderful environment all around us. I hope that my community work over the past 30 years has benefited Barrians, and that others will join me as an Ambassador to promote and enhance the opportunities our wonderful Town offers.”

Paul Haley, speaking to the newspaper, said, “We believe that Dilys plays a vital role in the regeneration of Barry through inspiring Barrians to be actively involved, and through continuing to promote our Town. We are looking for other Barrians to become Ambassadors and would encourage people to look at our website for details www.prideinbarry.co.uk and contact us.”


The exciting Ambassador scheme aims to create Ambassadors, across a broad range of ages and sectors.
