Thank you to The MJ for recognising local government. Much goes on behind the scenes that residents rarely know about, and therefore recognition can be rare. It is a huge morale booster for teams to be recognised, and a great showcase for the sector. You can see it really matters to people, and a fun event too.Mark Grimley Government of Jersey

This is a really important award that acknowledges the tremendous effort of those Teams and individuals on the ground working hard to support local communities often in the face of great challenges. The MJ's is an award that shows communities that the local authority does care and because it is a national award it is something that all concerned can be very proud about when they win!TJ Agard London Borough of Brent
Recognition of one's effort is a boost to do better. Such an event wakes up organisations to work even harder and better deliver quality services in their communities knowing fully well that someone somewhere is watching to recognise their efforts. It brings about going the extra mile to do better. It is a challenge to others too. The news is everywhere and the people and organisations who were not invited to the last award will work hard to compete with others to be recognised. It is an excellent event.Myke Odison Ani Tameside Council
