Saffron Walden Town Council received the annual Essex Community Award from Essex County Council and Essex Association of Local Councils.

The award recognises the town council’s community work across many services with particular regards to working with and supporting volunteers through a number of forums including the Tourist Information Centre and Bridge End Gardens and for its support afforded to local community groups.

It also recognises the imminent installation of new water refill points and water fountains to discourage single-use plastic and its joint partnership working with the Youth Outreach Partnership in delivering youth activities in the town.

Councillor Richard Freeman, said: “This is a very prestigious award as it recognises the hard work, dedication and commitment of our excellent staff and endorses the efforts of the council to ensure that we work in a collaborative and supportive manner with the community.”
