Higher Kinnerton Community Council
Welsh National Award Winners!

Early in 2017 One Voice Wales, the organisation which supports community and town councils throughout Wales, invited councils to submit applications for national recognition awards in several different categories.

We submitted applications in two categories (1) Best Website, (2) Best Community Engagement.

We are delighted to report that we were the winners of the “Best Website “and “Highly Commended” in the community engagement category. The judges praised our website for its overall design, ease of use and for getting the balance right between pictures and text.

The example we used in the community engagement submission was the process used for securing the first community shuttle bus service in Flintshire for the village. Although we weren’t outright winners we were praised for our innovative approach in engaging all sections of the community as well as members of the local council.

These awards demonstrate that although we are a small council compared to many other councils in Wales, we have the right progressive attitude and determination to succeed and gain recognition at a national level.

We would also like to express our thanks to Steve Jessop who, while a community councillor, played a significant part in the development of our current website.
