There are some lovely town halls and other council buildings out there. Some are steeped in history, some are pretty much brand new. But it’s about more than just the building: we want to join ELGL in celebrating local government and the important work that it does. Councils across the country run the services that have a daily impact on people’s lives, that help shape the places we live and work.
