Newtown Town Council has won  top award for its annual report.

The town council was named joint winner of the Best Annual Report 2020 by One Voice Wales, an organisation representing town and community councils in Wales.

Criccieth Town Council was named a joint winner.

Town Clerk Ed Humphreys said: “To some an annual report might seem unimportant, but it is a legal requirement and it is the purpose of the report and what it says that’s significant.

"The report is one of the ways that the town council and its councillors are held to account, comparing what was done against what was intended.

"To win a national award from amongst 735 local councils in Wales is indeed an accolade, not just for the town council but for the community it represents.”

The Annual Report 2018-19 is the first report by the council and it provides a platform for future reports, according to the council.

It was published bilingually and publicised via local hard copy, press, online press and the Town Council website.

It was activity distributed in hard/electronic copy to three community sectors: public, private and voluntary.
