Civic Office of the Year


The National Association of Civic Officers has promoted the Civic Office of the Year Award since 2003 and the Award has been won by a range of Councils from a very large City Council to a small Town Council with a part time Civic Officer.

The Award is designed to recognise and promote the work undertaken in your civic office where it contributes to the service provided to the community by your Council.

We are grateful for the continuing support, as award sponsors, of Vaughtons and Logocloth.
