The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) is once again running its awards programme this year as part of its work to recognise the local (parish and town) council sector's achievements.
The Star Council Awards are the only awards in England to celebrate the local council sector's brilliant contribution to its communities. Therefore, the awards are an excellent opportunity for councils, councillors, clerks, and county associations to showcase how they have made a real difference locally.
This year, the theme of the awards will focus on projects that have positively impacted communities in the context of COVID-19. For further details see here
