Work of local government celebrated
More than 800 of the most senior figures in local government gathered this week at London’s Grosvenor House to celebrate achievements and best practice across the sector.
It was the 20th year of the Local Government Chronicle (LGC) Awards, one of the most prestigious events in the local government calendar.
Among the big winners were Hertfordshire County Council who won the Health & Social Care Award sponsored by the Faculty of Public Health (FPH) and the Public Health Action Support Team (PHAST).

Nick Golding, LGC’s editor, said: "It is vital that we celebrate the best of local government, not least as the talent and innovation of council officers and councillors is often not recognised to the extent it should be.
"The recipients of the awards are the people doing the most to improve services at a time resources are constrained. We should thank them for their great work."
