Somerford Parish Council are "very pleased and proud" to announce that they have once again been awarded Quality Gold under the Local Council Award Scheme.
They were first awarded Quality Gold in August 2016 under this "most prestigious" scheme and at that time they were one of only three holders in Cheshire – to date there are still only five Cheshire parishes which hold the award and just fifty parishes in the whole of England.
The Quality Gold Award demonstrates that a council is at the forefront of best practice and achieves excellence in governance, community leadership and council development.
In announcing this award, they paid tribute to the hard work and commitment over the last 12 years of their then clerk, Julie Mason, who was recently appointed as Clerk to the Bollington Town Council, and welcomed their new Clerk, Carlton Evans, who will be working hard to maintain the "excellent" standards for which Somerford Parish has become known.
