JUST IN CASE YOU MISSED IT…..
Just in case you missed it……here’s what the Chairperson of the Town Council Cllr Tina Harris and I had to say on Radio Merseyside this morning about our Council of the Year award for 2017 and the wonderful community that is Halewood…….
COUNCIL OF THE YEAR AWARD FOR HALEWOOD TOWN COUNCIL
COUNCIL OF THE YEAR
at the National Association of Town Council’s Star Council Awards.
From near record levels of entries, the judges who included representatives from Central Government and the University of London, ‘were really impressed about how Halewood engaged with the community and (went) beyond the traditional boundaries of local councils’ and were ‘quite blown away’ with our work engaging with schools in tacking social deprivation.
At the awards, Cllr Tina Harris, Chairperson of the Town Council and Mayor of Halewood, paid tribute to the hard work and dedication of all Town Council staff, volunteers and Elected Members who do so much to live out the Town Council’s moto to ‘seek the best’ for our community.
Cllr Iain Hamilton, George MacKenzie (Town Manager) Cllr Tina Harris, Cllr Norman Hogg, Cllr Sue Baxter (Chairperson of NALC) and Geoff Williams from Blachere Illuminations who presented the award.
