The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) has announced its finalists in the prestigious Star Council Awards. After an exhaustive evaluation process, an expert panel of judges has selected a shortlist for each category – and two on the list are in Dorset!
Sherborne Town Council is a finalist Council of the Year, and Shaftesbury’s Brie Logan is a finalist as Town Clerk of the Year.
Judges comments include that ‘Sherborne Town Council has showcased remarkable accomplishments, underscoring their dedication to engaging with the community, promoting sustainable practices, and fostering collaborations with local organisations.’
NALC’s Star Council Awards are the only awards in England that recognise local (parish and town) councils’ contributions to their communities. The long-running awards celebrate local councils, councillors, young councillors and town clerks’ positive impact on their communities.
Of Brie Logan, the judges commented on her ‘transformative leadership’ and that her time at Shaftesbury Town Council ’has been extraordinary’, stating that her
‘boundless enthusiasm and exceptional communication skills have united her team, councillors, stakeholders, residents, and unitary officers in a mission of excellence.
‘Brie’s ambitions for Shaftesbury far surpass typical small-town council objectives, igniting inspiration throughout the North Dorset community.’
The winners will be announced at a reception in the House of Lords on 29th November.
