Through an independent panel, the local council bagged five award nominations.

These are for the following projects: Food Heartland, Developing a Digital Culture, Elected Member Development Charter and the Georgian Festival.

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.
