Richard Brown of Broxtowe Borough Council’s Communications Department writes: Congratulations on the ongoing success of the Bramcote Today site, which looks to be going from strength to strength.
On behalf of the Council, I just wanted to offer an update and let you know that the Council recently nominated our work together for two national awards. The site was shortlisted in the Best Information and Communication Technology Initiative category of the Association of Public Sector Excellence (APSE) Service Awards in September.
More recently, the site was nominated in the Best Community Engagement category of the Some Comms Awards last month – despite missing out on both awards, making it as far as being shortlisted is an achievement in itself!
Also, you may have already seen that William Perrin of Talk About Local recently mentioned our work together in discussing top tips for local democracy in the Guardian newspaper.
