Epping Town Council receives Special Achievement award
Epping Town Council has received a special award from the Essex Association of Local Councils in recognition of its achievements - including the organising of several major events - over the past year.
Judges singled out the council's support for the Epping in Bloom group, its work on playground refurbishments, creating a Neighbourhood Plan and the beacon lighting event to mark the Queen's 90th birthday for special praise.
The award was presented to Town Clerk Beverley Rumsey and former Town Mayor Barbara Scruton by A&J Lighting company director Andrew Bouttell at the Essex Association of Local Councils' AGM and annual awards ceremony in Dunmow on Thursday.
Town Clerk Beverley Rumsey said: "I know Epping Town Council will be absolutely delighted with this award.
"We are lucky to have so many local organisations who work for the good of our lovely town and it is a pleasure to be able to work with them for the good of our community."
