Council of the Year

I am delighted to report that at a ceremony last night Southend Borough Council was confirmed as the Council of the Year in the LGC Annual awards. Having been shortlisted for the most improved Council 2 years ago and the Council of the Year last year it was a special moment to win the top award. In announcing the decision the judges recorded the strength of our staff, partnership work and leadership. The award is great recognition for the hard work of so many members of staff who have driven standards up notwithstanding the challenge of the current economic situation. More details will soon be available but in the meantime having got home after 3am this morning I am going back to bed!
