At the Hampshire Association of Local Councils AGM, held in the Jubilee Hall in Hartley Wintney, Compton and Shawford was announced as the Winner of the Best Local Council Website for 2012.
Webmaster Adrian Walmsley is shown here receiving the e-mango shield from HALC Chairman, Eastleigh Borough Councillor Anne Winstanley, and Gordon Fong, MD of competition sponsor e-mango.
Local MP Steve Brine says: “It’s a cracking site and I love the fact it is 100% compatible with my iPhone which was very useful the other night when I was looking for something while working late in the Commons.”
In the Hampshire ALC Communication Awards for the Best Local Council Newsletter, sponsored by Microshade VSM, Botley won first prize, with Tadley as runner-up. Last year’s winner, Denmead, was placed third.
Hartley Wintney clerk Leah Coney, last year’s runner-up, won the Kirk Shield for Clerk of the Year 2012.
We were delighted and honoured to receive this recognition and we thank HALC for organising the competition.
Our website is still very much a work in progress.
We would welcome comments and suggestions about how the site could be improved. Offers of help would be welcome too.
