Armagh’s Georgian Day festival shortlisted as Council look to clean-up at awards night

Georgian Day festival has been put forward by council for one award

Armagh’s Georgian Day festival is one of the initiatives put forward by the Council as they look to clean up at awards night next month.

Northern Ireland Local Government Association (NILGA) Awards have made a welcome return with Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council nominated for no less than five different awards.

Showcasing excellence in service provision, new initiatives and personal commitment from councils, councillors and officers, the awards will recognise innovation, individual commitment and highlight best practice.

Through an independent panel, council bagged five award nominations for its Food Heartland, Developing a Digital Culture, Elected Member Development Charter and the Georgian Festival projects.

Lord Mayor of Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Alderman Gareth Wilson commented: “Our commitment to efficient, effective and excellent service delivery right across the borough is embedded in everything we do, that is why we are so thrilled and proud to have secured so many nominations in these prestigious awards.

“These nominations not only highlight the importance of striving for continuous improvement but more importantly they recognise and acknowledge all the hard work and dedication of our councillors and officers.”

The award winners will be revealed on Thursday, October 12, La Mon Hotel, Castlereagh.
