LARAC Celebration Awards Shortlist!

In this most singular year, we are more delighted than ever to reveal our shortlist for the 2020 LARAC Celebration Awards.  We are proud to be able to showcase our members incredible work during this most testing of years - they all deserve recognition. 

The judges had a hard task (when don't they?) and leading them was Carole Taylor, LARAC Chair who said "Despite this being a strange year, the judges were very impressed with the high standard of entries. This shows that local authorities are not only resilient and hard working in challenging times, but that they continue to make a difference and go above and beyond to achieve excellent results. "We would have liked to give them an all award if possible, so a big thank you to all that entered and good luck to those shortlisted."
