NORTH Weald Bassett Parish Council’s involvement with the local community has earned it the National Association of Local Councils’ monthly Council Spotlight Award.

The parish council has been recognised for its links with the local community, and for providing the village’s library service three days a week.

NALC said: “The council prides itself on the high-level of service it gives to local residents, which is evidenced by the fact that local residents choose to visit the library (in which the parish office is located) specifically on the days the council runs the library service due to the exceptional service they receive.”

The national body for local councils added: “There were many conversations over Facebook between the clerk (Sue de Luca) and local residents regarding exactly who had completed the community garden (by the parade of shops) with many people surprised to learn it was the council’s initiative, and shocked at the action needed to make it happen.

“The clerk is extremely active and supportive of partnership working, the main success story being that the council runs the local library three days a week, and has done for the past five years.

“The garden involved co-operation with local residents, local businesses, county council, district council, and two separate statutory undertakers.

“There are only three office staff, who collectively ensure the council’s legal obligations are met, that the council is proactive with the local community, and that the council is continuously evolving with the ever increasing electronic times we live in.”

Parish council chairman Alan Buckley said: “Congratulations and well done to everyone concerned especially to our office team of Sue, Adriana and Jo in achieving this well deserved recognition.

“As visitors to the library will know, the team are always happy to help out and go that extra mile.”
