Council of the week

Council of the Week

NALC has been celebrating the work of member councils through its Council of the Week feature since the launch of the new website in November 2014. 

Each week, the exemplary work of a local (parish or town) council in England is shared on the NALC website and in our weekly e-newsletter, showcasing our members’ achievements to a national audience, whilst inspiring good practice amongst others.  

We would love to see your hard work recognised.

To be considered for Council of the Week, all you have to do is fill out the simple  nomination form  and send it with your high-resolution image to cotw@nalc.gov.uk .

Successful Council of the Week nominees will be contacted by email prior to the piece being published. 

All Council of the Week submissions will automatically be entered into the prestigious Council of the Year category of NALC Star Council 2016 awards. So there’s another fantastic reason to put your council forward!

You can use this accolade to promote your council’s work by personalising the template press release (found below) for use in your communications and to issue to local media. Don’t forget to share your Council of the Week story on your social media accounts too.

Good luck!
