NALC Star Council Awards winners meet to share good practice


This year's Star Council Awards, Council of the Year winners Northwich Town Council, Cheshire and previous winners Halewood Town Council, Merseyside, met to discuss issues facing their communities and share good practice.

Northwich Town Council were crowned as this year's winners for its four-year plan in regenerating the town and the high street, making the town a hub of community activities.

Halewood Town Council were last year's winners for its work with the community to combat child poverty in the area, with the council feeding over 700 children and providing school uniforms.

At the meeting of the two local (parish and town) councils shared how they have been engaging with their communities to provide services and how building partnerships with other organisations and local businesses have helped their towns shine.

Cllr Sue Baxter, chairman of NALC said: “I am delighted to hear that two of our Star Council Awards winners are engaging with each other to share good practice and find solutions to local problems. This is a great thing for local councils to do and NALC believe, by being open, the sector can do a lot to help each other.”
