At a ceremony last night Southend Borough Council was confirmed as the Council of the Year in the LGC Annual awards.
This is one of the most prestigious awards it is possible for a local council to get.
This, on top of the fact that two years ago the council was shortlisted for Most Improved Council and then last year shortlisted for the Council of the Year award means that something must be being done alright on Southend Council!
Times are tough, money is tight, but your council is working as hard and efficiently as it can to produce the best results.
Biggest praise goes to all of those members of staff who we don’t even know, working hard every day to produce the best council in the land – and now it is official!
