I am very pleased to let you know that Sudbury Town Council won the Suffolk Council of the Year at the Suffolk Association of Local Councils AGM and award ceremony this week.
The award is set up to recognise town and parish council services and facilities for older people.
Judges comments regarding the application included the following:
“This council had thought of everything. They have a Christmas lunch party and take care of over-indulgers (St John’s Ambulance are in attendance!). They use sponsorship and staff commitment to ensure success and sustainability and to offer free events where possible. They signpost older residents to events, clubs and support organisations. They even have a scheme to support clothing for the over 70s, provide bus pass support and their Mayor even takes the time to visit care homes to try and make sure they are connected to all people within their town. They have a policy commitment to making sure all ages enjoy quality of life in a safe environment.”
This follows our winning of the most active town award earlier this year from Suffolk County Council. Congratulations to our staff for all their hard work.
The Town Council has 7 Lib Dem members, 5 Con and 4 Labour. This shows what joint working can achieve across the political spectrum.Leave a comment
