Award winning newsletter
We are delighted that our parent organisation, the National Association of Local Councils, chose Think Loughton as the case study for its Communications Toolkit (2010): Getting Your Message Across. This toolkit provides information and advice to those wishing to develop local community democracy. Visit http://www.nalc.gov.uk/
for more information.
As a 'Quality Gold'
town council we are required to demonstrate that we communicate, consult and actively involve our electorate, local organisations and members of the public. Good communications and community involvement are considered critical to earning and maintaining the goodwill and trust of the community that we serve.
We endeavour to produce an engaging and informative quality publication with a wide-ranging appeal so that its first stop after delivery is not the recycling bin. The key aims of Think Loughton are to:
- Promote the work of the town council
- Engage with local electors
- Support the work of local voluntary groups and charities
- Provide information, including that from other tiers of local government and the police.
The most heartening words we hear are: 'I read about that in Think Loughton.'
