POP 2016 The IPB Pride of Place Awards in Association with Co-operation Ireland took place on the 26th November in the Waterfront Belfast, proudly hosted by Belfast City Council. With over 800 guests in attendance representing communities across the island of Ireland. TV personality Claire McCollum hosted the gala evening. Now in its 14th year, the annual all-island awards recognises and celebrates the vast amount of work being done by groups, many of which are voluntary, to enhance their communities and make them a better place to live in. Every community/group nominated was visited by the IPB Pride of Place Judging Panel with the winners announced at the Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony in Belfast.
