It was my pleasure to nominate a numbers of our councillors for the 2012 LGiU and CCLA C’llr Achievement Awards. This year there was a large increase in the number of entries for the awards, so it was a reflection on the calibre of our councillors that they have been short listed.

SCRUTINEER OF THE YEAR AWARD
Samantha Hoy (Cambridgeshire County Council)
ONLINE COUNCILLOR OF THE YEAR AWARD
